Product description


"The textbook follows much of my thinking and beliefs so it helps to reinforce points in the classroom. I find the illustrations are wonderful, great examples of the concepts."

"The level of writing used in this text definitely meets the needs and abilities of my students. This book not only helps the students expand their vocabulary, but it also allows them to understand how the elements of art and the principles of design apply to figure drawing."

"I found the quotes in the chapter opening refreshing. It gives the reader an inspirational view of art...'In the Studio' provides the instructor with a wonderful recap of the lessons taught in the chapter and provides a step-by-step approach for the lesson."
