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!
