DRAW LIKE AN ARTIST, A SELF-PORTRAIT SKETCHBOOK, by Patricia Geis, Princeton Architectural Press

28634055

How would you draw yourself if you were Vincent van Gogh? Pablo Picasso? Or Frida Kahlo? Draw Like an Artist offers examples of self-portraits from eighteen masters, accompanied by thought-provoking questions and a matching canvas. The result is a fun-filled artistic journey for young artists of any skill level to create self-portraits in the style of different artists, and then finish with their very own composition.

Includes 18 activities.

MY THOUGHTS:

I asked for this book because I’m always interested in resource materials for writing and art and I like to share in particular, special finds that I think will help develop and hone crafts.

This book is very informative and educational when it comes to the various styles of creating self-portraits.  There’s blank paper provided so that after reading about a style, you can try it yourself using the new-found skills.

The book is large, full of lots of space to comfortably draw in and could be a great keepsake and resource tool. The finish of the pages may interfere with the medium used, however, but I haven’t tried to use the book myself. Let me know your thoughts if you have! 🙂
