How Great Thou Art How Great Thou Art I: An Inspirational Approach to Drawing, Revised

This conversational drawing-book combines casual text, simple lessons and quotes for the great artists for a fantastic introduction to drawing. Starting with the basics--"Draw lines, young man, draw lines!"--and incrementally growing towards the advanced--copying the masters and creating portait studies--students will learn about the steps it takes in order to become a truly good artist, as well as those who've already achieved such a distinction. Illustrations at each step of the way provide visual examples of the textual instructions. 116 pages, softcover with a blank "Sketchbook" included in the back. Five pen & ink cards are also included. Ages 13 & up. Supplies that are recommended to be purchased separately include: a drawing pencil set, an ultra fine black pen, calligraphy pen, pencil sharpener & a kneaded eraser.

Good book - we're just at the beginning, and my daughter is understandably a little bored with lines and ellipses. Hopefully as she sees how this improves her drawing, it will encourage her to continue!
