KIRKUS REVIEW

We have only sample pages, a jacket and a circular to go on so can simply call your attention to this 3-year art school course in one volume for home consumption. The authors are art teachers whose careers have given them practical business application of their teaching experience- a good combination for this useful volume. The purpose is to give the opportunity to study art to people who want to do it for fun, for a career, for self-expression (and their number is legion)- and who can't take time out- or money-to go to art school. This teaches fundamentals of drawing, painting, perspective, composition, values, methods and techniques, for everything from simple lines to portraits and landscapes. (We quote from the circular). Then comes the application of what has been learned to professional use in advertising, use of photographs, packaging, industrial design, interior decoration, fashions, etc.
