Mark Kistler'S Draw Squad

Mark Kistler could have written this book just for me. I quit taking art after 5th grade because the teachers didn't seem to grade fairly (how can you grade art?)

The point that Mark Kistler makes is that often teachers give a kid a pencil and paper and say "go ahead -- draw something". But they wouldn't give a kid the checkbook and pencil and say, "go ahead, balance it." Not unless they had given the child some basics of math and an understanding about what checkbooks are, do, and represent. Mark Kistler's Draw Squad teaches you the basics of art and then he shows you how to put them together to make some cool pictures. (Actually, he gets you drawing in the first lesson, not just "practicing your scales")

He gives you a self test so you can compare your before and after work. He also shows some wonderfully inspiring samples from other Draw Squad Members (people studying Mark Kistler's method -- and graduates of his course). I noticed that he not only teaches you fabulous cartooning he also introduces you to 3D and Eshcer-like artwork that you too can learn to create. (You should see what he teaches 8 year olds to draw.)

The Draw Squad encourages the participant to build a fanciful world of high tech and futuristic cities, unibears (teddy bear with a horn on its head) or to make up new creatures. Mark Kistler has broken the steps to learning to draw into bite sized chunks and gives you specific goals. Instead of saying, " go home and practice this,"(sort of a nebulous request if you ask me) he'll say "see how many tables you can stack on top of each other in your drawing. The current record for most tables stacked is ...".

Mark Kistler uses humor and wacky slogans to help break the "creativity crunch". He feels that often our young people tend to digest way too much TV and don't learn to strengthen their own creative skills (I personally fear that my beloved internet may be seducing young minds in the same way). This is why he comes up with comically ridiculous phrases to help the children (largely who his audience is; even though kids at heart like me can really relate)"draw outside of the box". If the children follow his lead and combine unexpected phrases or images or ideas, then they are exercising their creativity and making themselves better problem solvers (and better artists) in the process.

Mark Kistler's book is a must buy for parents or teachers who want to give their children confidence that they can draw. It's also a must buy for 5th grade art dropouts like myself. I use the computer to generate art but with the help of Mark Kistler's very fun, and inspiring and organized teaching method, I feel like I can create my own artwork instead of relying on using clipart.

PS If you're looking at other drawing or cartooning texts read this one first then go to How To Draw The Marvel Way by Stan Lee

PPS Teachers will find about 40 pages of advice from Mark Kistler and other teachers on how to go about using his lessons in their own classroom. This is a very friendly and approachable text.

I am an parent volunteer/Art Docent in a rural public school; I present art lessons to a fairly rowdy group of fifth-graders. This book makes it a breeze! Some if these kids (sadly) were already afraid to draw. "I can't draw" they told me. "I'm no good at art." How tragic! But with the help of this book and weekly 1/2 hour sessions, these kids are drawing like mad. They are proud of their creations and can't wait to show me their "practice creatures".
I plan to buy 3 more copies of this book to place in the fifth grade classrooms. These lessons are so simple, the teachers could pull out the books and Poof! instant art lesson. This makes a great Class Reward...a productive way to spend that stray 1/2 hour. The kids are learning but are having a blast!(I'm learning right along with them!) If only all learning could be this painless.

As a fourth-grade teacher who was never very good at art, I always found teaching art to be very difficult. Elementary school teachers aren't provided with any real curriculum, and the majority of ideas out there in books and teachers' magazines are simplistic cut-and-paste busy work that don't really teach any art concepts. Then I found this book! This is incredible! My whole art program is set up around this book! It teaches art concretely and step-by-step so that the most art challenged students (including myself) are able to learn from it! The kids love it, and its great for teaching mathematical and geometrical concepts like shapes, angles and terms. I couldn't recommend this book for any teacher (or child, or parent) more! You and your children will draw great pictures, even if you are as bad at drawing as I am!

I got this book for my 11th Birthday, I had been watching Mark's television show religiously, and, having such a great step by step interpritation of the TV series made it even better, I absolutely love this book as well as all the others my Mark that i have, signed of course, they're all just great books, I'd recommend them to parents even if the kids aren't into art, it's a great way to encourage self esteem and positive thinking!

Way to go, Mark Kistler!!!! I've always enjoyed art & drawing, but never had much confidence in myself because I was never really taught the basics in a way I could understand and/or enjoy. I've been out of college for quite a few years & I recently picked up this book & started drawing again. This book is definately one of the best purchases I've ever made. Terrific for young & old alike!!!!!!

I have no drawing skills. In a couple of months using this book as a guide, I was drawing cartoon-like characters, flags, and cities that people (especially my kids) loved. This book progresses gradually from a simiple 3D birthday cake, to fabulous creatures and worlds.He also gives lots of great motivational comments, shows the work of children and adults, and offers some very imaginative challenges.

I bought this book for my teenage twins and found myself drawing up a storm. Learn the very basics of drawing, starting with circles and boxes, shading and perspective. We spent many very enjoyable hours and it gives children a sense of accomplishment. This is my number one gift this Christmas for children of all ages.
