The 35th anniversary edition of the classic how-to book that has helped millions of artists learn to draw. When it was originally published in 1970, How to Draw What You See zoomed to the top of Watson-Guptill’s best-seller list—and it has remained there ever since. “I believe that you must be able to draw things as you see them—realistically,” wrote Rudy de Reyna in his introduction. Today, generations of artists have learned to draw what they see, to truly capture the world around them, using de Reyna’s methods. How to Draw What You See shows artists how to recognize the basic shape of an object—cube, cylinder, cone, or sphere—and use that shape to draw the object, no matter how much detail it contains.

Toward Wholeness

For Rudolf Steiner, life can be truly understood only if it is experienced as art is experienced, as inner activities expressed through physical materials. On this ground of the union of inner experience and sensory life, he developed his unique, holistic approach to education. Richards views Steiner schools as expressing a new educational consciousness appropriate for our time, a “grammar of interconnections” among scientific observational, artistic imagination, religious reverence, and practical activity in which every part bears a deep connection.

Contrary to assumptions that drawing is a gift that cannot be learned, this book demonstrates that it is a highly teachable skill. As well as instructing the student how to draw, the book also serves as a visual handbook for artists and designers who need to express ideas through drawing. Each chapter addresses a key topic in drawing method and theory in order to improve technique and understanding. Issues such as perspective and the manipulation of tones and marks to make 3-D forms are tackled in a simple and direct way, with a wealth of drawings by the great masters of the medium, in addition to diagrams and tables. Each section also offers ways for the student to put into practice the ideas and concepts discussed. These 'Ideas to Explore' range from practical exercises in drawing to the selection of drawing surfaces (such as paper) and subjects to discovering ways of thinking.

A fascinating follow-up to the beloved bestseller Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain--with new insights about creativity and our unique way of seeing the world around us Millions of readers have embraced art teacher Betty Edwards's Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, from art students and teachers to established artists, corporate trainers, and more--all discovering a bold new way of drawing and problem-solving based on what we see, not what we think we see. In this highly anticipated follow-up, Edwards illuminates another piece of the creativity puzzle, revealing the role our dominant eye plays in how we perceive, create, and are seen by those around us. Research shows that much like being right-handed or left-handed, each of us has a dominant eye, corresponding to the dominant side of our brain--either verbal or perceptual. Once you learn the difference and try your hand at the simple drawing exercises, you'll gain fresh insights into how you perceive, think, and create. You'll learn how to not just look but truly see. Generously illustrated with visual examples, this remarkable guided tour through art history, psychology, and the creative process is a must-read for anyone looking for a richer understanding of our art, our minds, and ourselves.

So, why learn to draw? Drawing is arguably as important and essential a skill as learning literacy and mathematics. When a child learns to draw, they are encouraged to do two things. The first is to look at the world around them - they begin to understand the connections between color and shape, form and perspective, dimensions and relations. The second is to look within themselves. Once a child learns how to draw, they are able to express themselves in a unique and fascinating way. Every individual has a very different imagination and a particular creative process, even from a young age - however they need a way to vent this imagination and creativity. Learning to draw is the perfect way to do this. Moreover, the better your child becomes at a skill like drawing, the more easily they will be able to express themselves. That is why this book is the perfect guide to the techniques needed in the earliest stages of drawing. Not only will it teach them the basics but more importantly they will have fun whilst they are learning. In no time at all you are sure to see your child's ability go from strength to strength, which will be an incredibly rewarding process for them but also for you!
