This book should take several years to complete and can be started in Grade 1. He recommends that you progress slowly, with lots of repetition. You do not work in the book so one book works for the whole family. You get a lot for your money with this little book.


The Drawing Textbook is designed to teach drawing at all levels of education from grade one through adult education classes. The simplest of tools are used for this drawing - education process - a simple pencil and ordinary typing sized paper.

There are 222 drawing exercises in the Drawing Textbook that are used to introduce, teach, test, and give practice in the use of the seven elements of drawing and alignment, used by everyone who knows how to draw. Each exercise introduces a new idea or adds to previous drawing concepts already introduced.

The Drawing Textbook gives a background discussion of drawing and how the following topics relate to it: education, communication, talent, art, public school art programs, and goals for the drawing student.
