Do you like painting? Does drawing interest you? Have you a pencil, a box of chalks, or a paint box?
Because, if you have even one of these things, you can open the door to many relaxing, rewarding and fun times.
Young people (and sometimes old people) are fond of excusing their laziness by saying, "I can't draw this - or I can't draw that. I haven't got the materials, or the pencil won't work." Which last excuse is about as reasonable as mounting a push-bicycle and expecting it to carry you up a hill without moving your legs.
Take a sheet of paper, or open up your sketch-book; pick up a pencil. Now what shall we draw?

(Note: Some of the drawings toward the end of this the book were damaged or not printed). Drawing Simplified is designed for general use in schools and for self-instruction. It can be used as a teacher's handbook for primary drawing.
It is designed to show teachers how to teach drawing in the primary grades. Each step is illustrated and carefully graded.
It does not go into the hands of the pupil at all, but guides the teacher step by step through the first four grades.
The whole system is based on three type forms; The cube, The Cylinder and the Triangular Prism, which are made the basis of all forms.

In the writing and illustrating of this book my aim has been to produce a comprehensive and concise treatis on the art of caricaturing. It has been made as brief as is consistent with clearness and completeness.
Althought the text is brief, no illustrations were spare. The many plates illustrate all points necessary, and each of the points illustrated are explained in the text with reference to that particular illustration. In addition to the plates there are many caricatures of famous men included.
Acting upon the assumption that it is easier to work if ones assignments are already made, Chapter XII has been made up of assignments and suggestions, which makes this book a complete course in caricaturing.

- $25.00 mailed on CD - 54 pages - Figure Drawing
There have been many works published on Landscape Painting containing the results of the experience of the best masters in this delightful branch of art, and many also on Figure Drawing, but the latter for the most part on too extensive a scale, and in too expensive a form, to be generally available.
A requirement, which has long been felt, is now being supplied. The author indulges the hope, that the following brief work on Figure Drawing may be useful; and that, although it is not to be expected that all which may be required to make a figure draughtsman will be found in these pages, sufficient information may be given to facilitate self-instruction; and that, at least, there is nothing that will place any impediment in the way of the pupil who may have the benefit of a master's attention.
In the rules and illustrations, all minuteness and complexity have been as much as possible avoided; as the Author has always found, in his experience, the most valuable information was that contained in the simplest form.

This monograph is a reprint of a series of articles first published in the second volume of the magazine now known as 'The School Arts Book'.
The articles attracted wide attention both on account of their timeliness and their illustrations. The plates were made from photographs of actual work upon the blackboard by Mr. Whitney, and are undoubtedly the most attractive blackboard drawings ever published.
The demand for these articles has been so great that the original editions have been exhausted. They are republished in this form in the hope that they may influence yet more strongly the increasing number of teachers who find the blackboard indispensable in teaching.
