This is book I of the "Augsburg's Drawing" series, a three-book course designed to teach children how to draw. Book I is the teacher's handbook, showing simple and effective methods of teaching drawing, including colouring, to children in the first, second, and third grades. Highly recommended for teachers and parents alike. Contents include: "First Years of Drawing", "Drawing from Memory and the Imagination", "Action Drawing", "Ambidextrous of Two-handed Drawing", "Place and Relation of Objects", "The Drawing of Trees", "Relative Size of Objects", "Teaching Proportion", "Teaching Unity", "Primary Object Drawing", "Quick Drawing", "The Drawing of Animals", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on drawing and illustration.
