Publication Date: 1992-08-01
Presented in an inspiring and instructive manner, this collection of inventive and stimulating drawing projects is designed to help artists develop their own creativity and discover their own way to draw. Each chapter is written to reflect the way legendary teacher Robert Kaupelis taught his classes at New York University for three decades. Structured like a classroom, the book guides readers to build skills through exercises that are geared toward such challenging themes as contour drawing blindfolded; experimenting with old master drawings; distorting perspective, and using photographs under grids. The text and suggested exercises are illustrated with drawings by old and modern masters, from Michelangelo to Jasper Johns, as well as outstanding student drawings executed using the methods presented in this book.
