    This book, by illustrator Ralph Masiello, helps kids begin drawing through clear, step-by-step picture instructions. While each step is short and simple, the end result is a realistic (fairly detailed) bug. Each bug covers a pair of facing pages - on the left are the directions (starting with a simple shape or line, and then being built up, with the existing lines in black and added lines of each step in red so kids can clearly see what is being done at each step) and on the right is a full page picture of that bug colored realistically with different materials. Just over a dozen different bugs are included. - Melissa

    This is a cute drawing book that anyone can use. Really, it's that easy, and the results look so good and creative. All you really need is your thumb, a stamp pad, and a pen. The author then shows you pages and pages of animals, people, and other things you can make simply with your thumbprint and a few simple lines. Each page shows steps to making the drawings, making it simple enough for even the very young. Includes pictures of people with various expressions, actions, occupations, and hats, lots of animals, flowers, multi-thumbprint creatures and other fun variations. You'll be able to make a pirate, cowgirl, doctor, man with a turban, caterpillar, lion, frog, spider, mouse, and tons more. And after a little bit of practice, you'll be ready to make your own original thumbprint drawings! These are great little personalized drawings to put on gift tags, cards, and anything else. - Melissa

    This book combines the delightful projects of Ed Emberley's Great Thumbprint Drawing Book and Fingerprint Drawing Book all in one. Although the content of the book is literally the same as those found in its components, the compilation does not provide the introductory advice/suggestion pages as the individual books do. Instead, the book quickly jumps into the projects themselves. Don't let this deter you from considering this book though. Although the advice pages are helpful, fingerprint art is simple enough to pick up on your own. Follow the step by step instructions to make various animals, people, objects, etc or experiment with your own fingerprint drawings. ~ Enh

       Whether you’re a hobbyist in fine lettering, wanting to learn more about the medieval art form of illuminating letters, or hoping to de-stress from the hustle of modern day in ancient creativity, this beautiful little workbook is the key. Each page consists of faint, soft blue graph paper to help you practice and learn illumination with little step-by-step drawing tutorials and illuminating techniques along the way. There are also blank letterforms to get you started from “A” to “Z” as you progress through the pages, just add a mystical creature here, some swirling vine and arabesque motifs there, fill-in the letter with a beautiful base color, then add some detailed accents with a white gel pen, and voilá, you’re an illuminator! You’ll find full-color samples of illuminated letters sprinkled amongst the pages of the practice book to give ideas and inspiration. 160 pgs, 6.25” x 8.25” hc. ~ Emily

    If you liked the original Visual Manna Drawing Book, you'll love the new, improved, and larger version they've just released. Like the previous edition, the only tools you need are a drawing pencil (they recommend a 5H or 6H to start off with) and paper. Like the previous book, this one covers all the bases of a serious drawing program including shading, texture, proportion, perspective, drawing people, buildings and more. But that's as far as the similarity runs. Visual Manna's Master Drawing covers each of these drawing topics in more detail than the Visual Manna Drawing Book, and also includes lessons on using grids, rhythm and value, drawing motion, and also gets into more specifics such as still life, animals, landscapes, cartoons and caricature. As a special treat, a section which features many field sketches of birds by renowned bird artist David Plank are also included in the animals section. Other very helpful lessons include using creativity and how to concentrate on what you are seeing as you draw - both important for the serious sketcher. Lessons are open-ended, and easy to understand, while covering all the basics such as the face being five eyes wide, and finding a vanishing point to draw accurate perspective drawings. This could be implemented with a group of budding artists, or for the older or more driven art student. All the way through, students are reminded to practice, practice, practice... or, should I say, sketch, sketch sketch to improve their mastery of the skills taught. Characteristically Visual Manna, this is a good, solid, Christian-based drawing program that will give aspiring artists a solid start to becoming the next Rembrandt.

    Drawing and doodling can be a very calming activity with interesting results. Tangling is a focused form of doodling using detailed patterns and effects. After learning a few basic tools & materials, you can explore tangling through a variety of prompts. You will learn to create your tangles step by step. This kit comes with everything you need to get started with your tangles! You get a soft graphite drawing pencil & sharpener, a kneaded eraser, 20 archival paper tiles (3.5” squares), 2 archival ink pens in 0.1 and 0.2mm, and basic white drawing paper for working out your ideas. Several pages of instruction have you practicing random lines & squiggles, effects like shading & sparkle, patterns & borders, beginning creatures, flux patterns, Hollibaugh woven looks, Roxi (looks like beads on a string) and nature motifs. There are loads of tips and inspiration followed by prompts which show an outline image that you then complete as you like. You can apply these techniques to other crafts as well, such as a picture frame (shown in this book). Your 40 pg book and supplies are contained in a snazzy portfolio/box with tangling on the cover. Any young art student would appreciate having a go at this meditative art form, but many adults would like it as well. The kit makes a lovely gift since it includes everything needed to create and comes in an attractive package! By Walter Foster. 8” x 10” x 1.25” ~ Sara

    A simple and cute drawing book that uses basic shapes such as triangles, ovals, and squares to create varied subjects. Simple step-by-step instructions guide children as they fill the pages with anything from spaceships to bunny rabbits to fairies. More of an activity book than something you would use as art curriculum, this book might serve well at restaurants, on car trips or on a rainy day. Each two-page spread is a different setting, beckoning for different creatures or objects. For example, one page is a town at night and the artist is prompted to draw alley cats atop the walls. The drawing instructions usually have 4-6 steps, starting with a subject's most basic shape and gradually adding to it. Softcover, 95 pages.
