A 128-page paperback book by Valerie Colston.
Inspiration and Ideas
The alternative title for this book was ‘200 Projects To Strengthen Your Art Skills, For Aspiring Art Students’. This book sets tasks and problems to help you think about what you are making and discover your own style. The projects are not step-by-step but rather a few sentences of suggestions or ideas to help you try each technique in art making. If you complete all the tasks you will have learned a lot and also have a body of work that you could use to apply to art school. As well as building a foundation on an understanding of all the techniques of art, each idea is a jumping off point.
This is a complete course in drawing, painting and illustration for young artists. It is filled with challenging tutorials, practical projects and tips from professional artists. The media covered range from pencils, crayons and paints to clay, mixed media and computers. All students taking GCSE and A-level art as well as anyone trying to get into art school needs to provide course work and projects for their portfolio. This book covers the important topics and provides over 200 projects that will guide students and give them inspiration for developing their own projects.
