A Sketch and Textbook

Second Edition

Margaret Lazzari, Dona Schlesier, and Douglas Schlesier

  • Combines basic instruction in drawing with a real sketchbook where students can complete their work
  • Practical sketching projects and research prompts actively engage students throughout the text
  • Includes both reproductions of other student and professional art works that can serve as inspiration/models

New to this Edition:

  • More drawing space gives students extra room to practice and create multiple versions of their work
  • Color sketch pages in the back of the book allow students to experiment with color grounds
  • Larger reproductions of key examples make them clearer and easier to use
  • Several areas of instruction have been expanded, including scaling up small sketches for large drawings (Chapter 2), new composition images (Chapter 8), and the self-portrait project (Chapter 9)
