My son has used Drawing Textbook off and on for the past 2 years. It is easy to follow. I have also taken the lessons with him so that we could both learn. Instead of doing art as often as I should as a class, I have now let him just take the book and work through as he wants to. The lessons are simple and not difficult to master at all. What I like is that it is a small book. At first it seemed too easy but it very detailed. My son likes it very much.
