We first discovered this series of I Love to Draw… books at the Asheville Art Museum, where they told us that author and illustrator Jennifer Lipsey is an Asheville native. (Apparently she has also been an instructor at the Art Museum summer camps in the past.) Conveniently these books are also published by Lark Books, which happens to have an Asheville base. I’m continuously in awe of the people & talent tucked away in our “little city” in the mountains.
Currently we only have the dog title, though this one is on the list for Harper’s birthday.
What I particularly love about these books is that the art is not intimidating. Each book is fun and colorful and filled with facts and visual instructions, which make the skill of drawing approachable and achievable not only for kids but also those adults-who-cannot-draw as well (that would be me, by the way, in case you’re wondering!)
