Anyone can draw. Award-winning artist Bruce Waldman has spent the last 30 years teaching people at all levels simple methods for drawing nearly anything imaginable, adapting and simplifying techniques favored by artists since the Renaissance. Now his book Drawing for Everyone: Classic and Creative Fundamentals provides a clear path to artistic expression for those who have never attempted art before as well as those making a living at it.
  • Learn how light and shadow work, how to make objects seem close or far away, how to draw complex things by starting with simple geometric shapes, and more.
  • Sketch animals, people, cities, simple objects in your home, complex landscapes, even fantasy imagery.
  • Drawing for Everyone contains plenty of step-by-step instruction, but it’s much more than that. It’s an art class in a book, a guide to discovering your own personal artistic vision even if you’ve never before thought you could have one.
  • Ultimately, the tools and exercises inside will free you to powerfully express your ideas on paper.
  • Bruce also shares personal anecdotes about his teaching and creative experiences over the years.
  • Black-and-white and full-color illustrations.
  • 160 pages.
  • 8-1/2 inches by 11 inches.
