Product Description

From the Author

Book Review by "The Artisti's Magazine, Nov. '97 issue
This is taken directly from the "Book Reviews" pageby Karen Mather, The Artist's Magazine, November 97 issue. "Drawing With Children", by Mona Brookes. Prepare to be amazed. [...] There's no other art book quite like it. Brookes has defined the elusive concept of "seeing artistically" into practical, teachable, easy-to-learn lessons that can empower children - as well as beginning adults - to draw realistically. [...] This outstanding book goes on to provide all the necessary tools for students to become lifetime artists. Putnam, 274 pp., softcover.

About the Author

Brookes is an internationally acclaimed art educator and founder of the Monart Drawing Schools.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
as an art teacher I have been looking for new and better ways to teach young and adult students how to express themselves through drawing/painting. I find that especially older students judge their skills and artistic talen from how well they can draw realisticly.
Realistic drawing/painting = arts for alot of people.
Mona Brookes methods even taught me how to see and draw the easy way, that art school never taught me.
She unravels the secrets by easy copying exercises, that teach you how to see how different basic forms and lines build up more complex form and compositions. I saw myself analyzing my subject matter in a different way after doing only the first exercises.
this book is good for beginners, children, teenagers or adults. It should be read by every teacher and art teacher!

Finally a book that outlines techniques, tools, the artists environment and everything in between. The premise of the book is that we are not given the proper tools to excel as artists. Given the proper tools and instruction, anyone can greatly improve their drawing capability. I look forward to using the methods outlined in this book to assist my 6 year old aspiring artist in developing her talent. This is a wonderful book.

This book lays out the basics for the beginner artist; child or parent or teacher.It is easy and pleasant to read. One can work through it easily at one's kitchen table. (You have to be willing to turn off the phone!). The method is extremely simple but brilliant. Everyone can experience success by following these simple guidelines. The key is the same as the key to any skill: practise!How sad that many of us have forgotten that simple truth in education.

This is a wonderful book - well titled becasue if you are "Drawing with children" as the title suggests - it is full of educated practical tips and ideas and we are still really loving this book after more than a year of constant use in our Children's Art Centre.

I am delighted and amazed with the joy and confidence this book has given my daughter. She experienced a less than positive atmosphere in the realm of drawing (and the academic world in general), but skyrocketed within a month of utilizing this book. The Monart method is an easy to follow, easy to implement, fail safe method, insuring spectacular results!

After reading the Amazon description and reviews (and dismissing the 2 star one), I ordered this from Book Depository.
I should have heeded the 2 star review. The book cover is deceptive showing a bright colourful picture by a 5 year old. There are a few colour examples in the centre pages but otherwise is quite uninspiring for a child and parent to learn from.
I now notice the reviews are dated 1998.
The book is outdated along with the reviews.
I am returning it.

Over the past several years, I have seen the drawings of art students at the school where my daughter attends. I am continually amazed by the quality of the students' work as it is displayed at various times throughout the year. I have spoken with the teacher and found that she has been using the books, "Drawing with Children" and "Drawing with Children and Teens" for several years.
