Drawing Books

Does anyone have those few students in each of your art classes that always finish way sooner than anybody else? I certainly do. I usually would let them work on free draw which has worked out really well over the last couple of years. Not to0 long ago I got an extra How-to-Draw book from the librarian and used this as a free draw option. The kids loved it. When I went looking for some more free draw books I stumbled across a series of drawing book by Ed Emberley. Apparently, he has been around for a long time. His drawing are just wonderful! Students from all different ages really enjoy his books because they are easy enough for kindergarten and have a lot of variety that the older students enjoy.


  1. cool! I'll have to try these. I am actually looking at blogs for ideas of how to hang things for the end of year art show without damaging walls. If you have any ideas let me know.

  2. These books look like fun - the name Ed Emberly seems familiar, and there is a familiar look to to the artwork. There must be a book that I've seen...

  3. yeah, his drawing books have been around for a long time. I know some people who remember the books from elementary school.
