Everyone - especially children - would love to be able to draw properly, but for many frustrated pupils this remains an unattainable dream. The new edition of this unique guide contains new chapters on using a variety of sketching materials and taking painting skills to new levels, plus more material on drawing 'movement' and people. It equips teachers with a range of innovative ideas and practical strategies for teaching pupils to draw. Using a step-by-step approach, Barbara Ward starts with the basics of teaching drawing, providing guidance on issues such as motivating pupils and teaching them to look. She then moves on to more adventurous topics like drawing a portrait, sketching animals and depicting scenes from the natural world.
