Learn to Draw Disney/Pixar Onward: Featuring all of your favorite characters, including Ian, Barley, Blazey, and more!

Learn to Draw Disney/Pixar Onward is a new booklet in the Learn To Draw series. Released 10th March 2020 by Quarto on their Walter Foster Jr imprint, it's 64 pages and will be available in spiral-bound format.

Although ostensibly aimed at young artists (6+ years), there is a lot of really fun and accessible information here for artists of all ages and levels of experience. The simple and appealing step-by-step line drawn tutorials will help with confidence building and technical expertise.

The introductory content covers tools and supplies (an admirably short list), tracing and outlining, using the grid method, and basic shape drawings. The background drawings on all the pages are adorable and full color (see cover).

The tutorials (12 different, with lots of characters in various combinations) are 2-10 pages each of clear step by step drawings to achieve a recognizable fantasy based elf character along with a stable of supporting creatures (the derpy unicorn slays me every time). This would make a really lovely rainy day activity or library group activity for young kids. This would also make a really great parent/caregiver/babysitter activity for anyone with a youngster in their lives. Drawing together with your kids makes a lot of great memories. 

Very cute book. Good practice for all beginning artists, no matter what age.

Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
