Nature Drawing Guides
A Parents Choice Approved Award Winner, it's not hard to see why this book was chosen for the honor. Carefully enlightening text, delicate illustrations of nature and finished crafts, easily comprehensible instructions, and a sweet love for the earth's natural beauty make this an enjoyable craft book like none other. Sections are based upon materials used, including vines and twigs, gourds and husks, clay and sand, paints, flowers and more. A full-page illustration accompanies each of the 65 crafts, and simple pen-and-ink drawings often accompany the step-by-step instructions and material list as well. For each section, and often many of the individual crafts, Nature's Art Box addresses elements of the environment, and how mankind has used nature as a source of artistic inspiration and use throughout our long history. Conservationism is addressed, including explanations on why living bark should never be stripped or the ground cleared of all nuts, instead advocating a responsibility for the earth and her bounty. 215 pages, softcover.
The simple drawing book is adorable and utterly unique. No instructions. No step by step outlines. Just stylized drawings of owls, snails, butterflies, pinecones, chestnut burrs (whole and split), different types of thistles, bees, mushrooms, and more. Five hundred illustrations of things from nature included, along with blank pages for sketching your own versions.
