The Drawing Lesson - Book Review



Book Description:

For the first time ever, drawing instructor and graphic novelist Mark Crilley brings his easy-to-follow artistic instruction to aspiring artists in the form of a comic book, providing you with a one-of-a-kind how-to experience. In The Drawing Lesson, you’ll meet David—a young boy who wants nothing more than to learn how to draw. Luckily for David, he’s just met Becky—his helpful drawing mentor. Page by page, Becky teaches David (and you!) about the essential fundamentals that artists need in order to master drawing, all in a unique visual format. In panel after panel, Crilley provides lessons on shading, negative space, creating compositions, and more, with accompanying exercises that you can try for yourself. Are you ready to start your drawing lesson today?


My Review:

This was a fun little book to read. As you read the comics (which are very entertaining) you will start to learn how to draw.... How fun is that! While reading you meet David, who wants nothing more than to learn how to draw. You go on his adventure with him as he meets Becky who helps him to learn. Each page you learn more about David, Becky and of course drawing. She teaches him .. and YOU.. how to begin with drawing. 

The story line was interesting and reading along has helped me to understand more about drawing. I will be happy to share this book with my sons and help them to learn.
