“A beautiful book, full of ideas and a vivid sense of materials — truly appetising and stimulating.”  Sir Quentin Blake

Drawing Projects for Children is a fun and inspirational source of advice, with simple, step-by-step exercises and games. This easy to read and beautifully illustrated guide will inspire children and adults, and appeal to both new drawers and drawing enthusiasts alike. With sessions ranging from ten minute tasks to longer still-life exercises and interesting projects such as drawing by torchlight, the book helps to introduce kids to a range of materials, techniques, media and ways of thinking. Each project is followed by helpful notes for parents or teachers, providing advice and practical strategies for enabling learning, as well as setting out the aims of the exercise and suggesting further steps.

Aimed at children aged 5-13, Drawing Projects for Children equips adults with a range of innovative ideas and challenges for teaching children to draw, both at home, in the classroom, and beyond.

Paula Briggs has been teaching drawing for many years, and is Founder and Director of AccessArt, a charity committed to furthering the advancement of education in the arts.
