This unusual book serves several different purposes, starting with its guaranteed appeal to both professionals and amateurs who like to pick up a pencil and draw. Art students seeking a change of pace will respond to the authors' very informal approach, seeing the lessons as fun-to-do confidence builders that emphasize the value of creative freedom. Every exercise can be performed by artists at all levels of training and ability.

All exercises are designed to develop and improve hand-eye coordination Each exercise focuses on a different approach to drawing precisely what the eye sees--rapid sketches of moving objects, detailed observation of tones and shadow, exercises that teach rules of perspective, and much more A powerfully effective art course that never feels like a set of tedious drills

Lessons can be completed using various media--pencil, ink, colored pencils, magic markers, or charcoal. Illustrations on every page in color and black and white.

This is a great book, but it really isn't for beginners. Although the subtitle says it is for for "anyone with a pencil & paper," many of the the tasks/challenges require drawing supplies other than pencils. The actives are more about exploring different styles and medium than they are about getting drawing practice. I'm planning to try this book again when I have a better grasp of drawing basics.
