Posted on Mar 11 2017 - 9:00am by Susan Bewley

Have you been wanting to learn how to draw or help someone in your family learn to draw? See what we think of the How to Draw Cool Stuff here!

Are you someone who loves to draw? While I may not be very good at it, I’ve always loved drawing and testing my skills. My husband even bought me a drawing tablet and Photoshop. While they are priorities for me to learn, it feels like due to how busy I have been, my skills have been declining rather than improving, leaving me wanting to learn to draw even more, even if it is just as a hobby. Since I don’t have a lot of extra time, I want a series that makes learning how to draw fun, easy, and an enjoyable experience, some of the main reasons I was excited when I was approached to review a new series – How to Draw Cool Stuff.  After reading a bit about the series, I couldn’t wait for my complimentary books to arrive!

How to Draw Cool Stuff Series: Our Thoughts

If there is one thing I love about these books, it is just how approachable they make the entire subject of learning to draw. Most of their lessons, honestly, make everything look so easy, especially if you devote time to practicing. Unlike most art books I have in my house, it also teaches you to draw a variety of different things, revolving around the concept that shapes and lines are the key to learning to draw just about anything. While I haven’t had to chance to do a whole lot of practicing yet, I can’t wait to get into these books more and really learn how to draw on my own at home!

    My brother is the artist in the family, but I would love to learn how to draw. This is too cool.

    Super cool!! I really lack artistic skills but there’s so many things I wish I could make!! So much more inexpensive when you can do it yourself 🙂

    This would have helped me years ago when I was in school. I am glad they have it now to teach people to learn how to draw.

    That is the one thing I do well. I’ve won awards and back when I was in school, a teacher asked me to draw a picture for her to give as a gift. I really want to get back into it.

    My family is a family of artists–except me. My great effort is stick figures. Maybe this would help.

    My mom was an artist many years ago! Us kids would beg her to draw stuff for us! It is ashame she gave up her dream!
    None of us are artistic, but a couple of grandkids show promise. I couldn’t draw now if my life depended on it! My hands shake because of the meds I am on. But this is a great idea for DIY lessons!

    I have always wanted to learn how to draw, I know in school , I was probably one of those kids that never got enough time with the teacher to learn, and in life I have just been to busy. But this is really great price for these, definitely will be checking them out.

    I need to look into purchasing these books for our school’s library. The books we have are older and we need some updated books. The kids love to draw and give the pictures to their teachers.

  37. Lisa F. April 5, 2017 at 12:41 pm - Reply

    I used to love to draw and haven’t really done it in years. Do you lose the skill if you don’t sue it like with some other skills? If I could spare some quality time, this would be a cool thing to get to get back into it.

    I love to paint but often get stuck on the how to draw first. I would love to give these books a try.

    I used to make pretty drawings on paper and make beautiful permanent pictures on clothes. I never had any encouragement, so gave it up. If I were young again, I would definitely check this out.
