Comes with: 106 page book, sketch pen, 2 watercolor pencils.

Just start with a scribble! Start with a Scribble will banish your inner critic and kick-start your inner genius, as you learn to draw with a little how-to and a lot of just-do. An artist-quality pen and watercolor pencils (red and black) are included. Inside, you’ll find: Prompts to inspire you (e.g., “emotional rabbits”) Doodles to finish (“Mrs. Thudkins takes her floppaterasis for a walk”) Techniques to try (only when the mood strikes you), from shading to perspective And plenty of wide-open space to play around in. We’re much less interested in the appearance of something than in the something itself. So, when you’ve settled on your subject (a monster? a cockatoo?), first figure out what its essence should be (ferocious? bashful?) . . . and then, just toss that ball up (artistically speaking) and give it a good swat across the net. Voilà! You’re an artist. Throughout, beloved illustrator Sir Quentin Blake shares sage advice, from “it’s best to name your animal after you draw it” to “don’t worry too much yet about ankles.” The most important lesson? Let go and give in to your own creative spirit! Publisher's note: Start with a Scribble is an updated North American edition of Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered (Klutz, 1999).

Put the brush in your hand. Stick it in the water, then smush it around in one of the colors. Now take a deep breath and plop it down on the page . . . You’re an artist. Yes, really! Young or old, there is an artist in each of us. If yours is hiding (perhaps behind a shred of self-consciousness?), just remember: Art is personal expression. You have your talent. Nobody else has anything like it! If you are ready to discover (or re-discover) your genius, Paint This Book! is here to help. The paints, the brush, and the watercolor paper are all included—plus irresistible encouragement and exercises from authors John Cassidy and Thacher Hurd: Work small: Quick, spontaneous strokes will happen more naturally. Trust your instincts: Watercolor can turn to mush with a lot of revision. You’re better than you think you are! Choose your techniques: You’ll learn about light and shadow (page 43), perspective (page 51), and more. But it’s up to you whether to use these skills often, or never! Either way, there are many artists who do the same. Don’t forget: Sometimes a shimmer of color on the page can look even fruitier than a realbowl of fruit. Between these covers, there are no mistakes. Just add imagination (and water)!

This eBook is derived from the hardcover book called 'the Zen drawing Pack', which was published in October 2014 by Rockpoint publishers and as an eBook called 'The Zen drawing eBook' by the authors. In this eBook version called 'Zen drawing - a new way to become mindful', the reader finds lots of extra background information on Zen Buddhism. It also includes additional meditation techniques that can be combined with Zen drawing. The drawing exercises included in this eBook focus on applying drawing to reach self awareness, inner peace and stillness. Zen drawing is based on the work of Frederick Franck. Artist Michelle Dujardin explains how to use realistic drawing as a meditation technique in a practical and contemporary way. This ebook is for people who are interested in finding new ways to become Mindful. Michelle shows you how to connect with the world around you and achieve a meditative state while drawing. Zen drawing will awaken your 'inner artist’ and allow your hands to follow the movement of your eyes. This inner artist will change the way you see a subject, helping you to create art that is more expressive and more beautiful than what you've ever done before. Not great with a pencil? Don't worry, everyone can learn to draw this way and you don't need any special talent or class. For any level of artist, from a beginner with little talent to an illustration expert, Zen drawing is not about making perfect pictures, it is about the experience of drawing, finding inspiration, and connecting to the world around you.

In this eBook called 'Zen drawing - a new way to become an artist', the authors have put less emphasis on the Zen Buddhism background of Zen drawing and more emphasis on the artistic benefits that can be found by using the techniques described in the hardcover book.

In this eBook artist Michelle Dujardin helps you to awaken your inner artist and add soul to your sketches by ignoring conventional drawing techniques and focus on really seeing your subject. Michelle helps you achieve a meditative state just by changing the way you see a subject, and allow your hands to follow the movement of your eyes.

Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? If so, it may be time to take charge of your child’s education—by doing it yourself. The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorization and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardized testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success.
