The author is a successful sculptress who has taught the art at a number of schools. Her teaching experience, as well as her expertise, is evident here in the well organized text. All the basic points for beginners anxious to start are presented with brief clarity and conversational informality. In discussing equipment, techniques, casting and composition the enthusiasm of a good teacher is unflagging and contagious. Art teachers at every level, and particularly those working with adult education classes, should be made aware of the book.
