With eye-catching interiors and playful activities, this open-ended sketchbook encourages would-be artists of all ages to look at the world around them and take chances expressing what they see. Inspiring and colorful graphic design will unleash the artist in anyone.
"This lively sketchbook contains decorative graphic spreads and prompts that ask readers to integrate their own words and drawings. Quotations from artists such as O'Keeffe and Picasso invite deeper reflection on making art while loosely introducing themes on line, color, pattern, and texture. Most of the exercises emphasize free expression ("make a self-portrait using your favorite colors"), while others introduce concepts like perspective. Young artists are likely to enjoy the balance between instruction and independent exploration." -- Publishers Weekly
