Written and hand drawn by award-winning author Sarah Richardson, Make Your Mark functions as a drawing aid, taking its readers on a creative journey. Beginning with the joys of scribbling, children learn how to create tone, line, shape, texture, and pattern, eventually arriving at the more sophisticated principles involved in drawing animals and people and mastering perspective.
Sarah Richardson, a well-regarded art educator, brings a vitality and freshness to the book's pages with her own drawings and photographs, which are as inspiring as her concise and pithy texts. Through its wide range of activities and creative challenges, this book will help young artists discover their own potential, giving them the confidence to go ahead and make their mark.
Sarah Richardson is an artist who has taught art to adults and children, and to other teachers. She is the author of Art in a Box, which won the 2006 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award. She lives in London.
