Drawing to Seeis specifically designed for the beginning drawing student. The focus of this clear and thorough text is to teach students what they need to know and see to draw in an objective manner. It introduces students to the concepts and procedures necessary to develop sound drawing skills, focusing on matters of measurement and perspective, line and shape, planar and structural analysis, value and volume, and color. The book then explores the compositional and expressive aspects of both observational and imaginative drawing. AuthorsNathan Goldstein and Harriet Fishmanhave carefully selected the best examples available to illustrate their points, choosing a broad range of images from simple line art to old masters to contemporary artists. Features of this new text include: A practical introductionthat addresses the book's rationale, themes, and content.

These sections introduce beginning students to the kinds of observations and queries generally made by teachers in classroom critique situations. Drawing exercisesappear in eight of the nine chapters, giving students the opportunity to practice the concepts they have learned.Goldstein, Nathan is the author of 'Drawing To See', published 2004 under ISBN 9780130981783 and ISBN 0130981788.
