These easy-to-follow guides make it a snap for children (and would-be artists of all ages) to create recognizable likenesses of creatures from a variety of biomes and natural settings. Clear, step-by-step diagrams using ovals, lines, and other simple shapes illustrate how to produce realistic images that can then be colored.
This enables budding artists to practice the basics of shape development and understand the fundamentals of form and dimension. Each book contains 30 drawing projects with black-and-white line illustrations. They can be used as part of an art curriculum, for illustrations for a science curriculum, or as hands-on activities for unit studies.
Creatures include a dragonfly, beetles, grasshopper, scorpion, housefly, honeybees, moth, praying mantis, and flea.
