The new "How To Draw" series takes a highly visual and practical approach to drawing. Learn how to draw a variety of big cats, in group scenes and different postures. The titles feature ten step-by-step instructions for each art project. Duotone line illustrations make each step easy. They include background information on the subject being drawn. Different drawing media are used, including pencil, pen, crayon, paints and charcoal, with clear instructions for each. The series covers a comprehensive range of popular subjects, with sections on material, composition, perspective and technique. "Big Cats and the National Curriculum" encourages children to 'record from first-hand observation, experience and imagination, and explore ideas'. It teaches children to 'try out tools and techniques and apply these to materials and processes, including drawing'. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14, promoting 'positive attitudes to learning', 'knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the world' and 'skills in literacy'.
