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.
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! 🙂
