Two generations of artists began with this great little booklet. Start with very simple objects and work your way up to complex buildings and sky scrapers.

Can you draw the pencil on the front? See how easily McIntyre teaches perspective by adding shading to those few simple strokes?

He begins the book with an interesting perspective on art education - or education in general - at the beginning of the book.

Read more about The Drawing Textbook. It provides a full year of drawing and art instruction.

Those who have completed The Drawing Textbook and are ready for Year 2 of McIntyre's drawing program, should check out other drawing books by Bruce McIntyre.
