The drawings vary in difficulty so there is something for everyone. The drawings go in chronological order beginning early 1300 and ending in the 1600s.
Included in this book: detail from Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, detail from Botticelli’s La Primavera, Bruegel’s Hunters in the Snow (Winter), one of Da Vinci’s horse drawings, the Florence Cathedral, Durer’s Young Hare, Giotto’s Legend of St. Francis – Sermon to the Birds, detail from Masaccio’s Holy Trinity, detail from Michelangelo’s Adams’s Creation from the Sistine Chapel, detail from Raphael’s The Sistine Madonna, Saint Basil’s Cathedral (see below), the Taj Mahal and detail from van Eyck’s The Ghent Altarpiece – Adoration of the Lamb.
The instructions for the drawings are preceded by a paragraph about the art or architecture and an image of the original. No work is completed inside the book, so it can be used over and over again with the same or different students.
We also provide a PDF download of starter templates for those who are interested.
