Valerie Colston - All books by this author

Aspire Series - All books in this series

Challenging tutorials, 35 imaginative projects to complete, and tips from professional artists introduce beginning students to the building blocks of art. This profusely illustrated book teaches serious beginners the fundamental skills of graphic design as an introduction to their formal study in fine art, illustration, computer game design, interior design, animation, and virtually all other avenues in the visual arts. The author advises on setting up a proper workspace and assembling the needed materials—everything from sketchpads and paints to affordable computer software. Chapters that follow present themes and related projects to instruct readers in—
  • The basics of line art for illustration and lettering
  • Understanding color and tone and using color media
  • Texture in art
  • Spatial relationships and perspective
  • Creating shapes and relating them to other elements of composition
More than 200 color illustrations demonstrate art principles and practical techniques, and show students how to apply what they are learning in a wide range of media.

From the reviews:
“This fascinating book will appeal to serious students of art, casual hobbyists, and anyone curious about the how and why behind a variety of artistic techniques. Written with art students in mind… The dynamic layout is filled to the brim with illustrations, and the project ideas will stimulate creativity and encourage experimentation.”
—Heidi Dolamore, School Library Journal, February 2009

“beautifully and profusely illustrated … It teaches serious beginners the fundamental skills of graphic design as an introduction to their formal study in fine art, illustration, computer game design, animation, and virtually all other avenues in the visual arts.”
