Overview

The mindful pleasure of learning to draw, with paper goodies and creative secrets from expert illustrators.
 
Draw the Flow way. In this innovative approach to drawing instruction, the illustrators from Flow magazine open up their tool kits, sharing secrets and techniques to teach the creatively curious how to draw. And paper goodies bound into the book encourage artistic exploration and remind us of the mindful pleasure of doing creative work.
 
The lessons, 50 in all, show how to render the kinds of things we see every day: a bouquet of flowers, a beloved teacup, colorful mittens, the kitchen table, a bike, jam jars, a cat, an apple tree.  Along the way we learn about color, materials, perspective, tools, and negative space.  
 
Filled with paper goodies:​
  • Paper doll fashion sketchbook to draw your favorite outfits
  • Mini daily drawing pad
  • DIY postcards
  • Watercolor, tracing, and colored papers
  • House interiors to unfold and decorate
