Drawing trees, flowers, boats, and houses is usually pretty easy. But, what do you do if you want to add animals to your pictures? What if you have created a perfect African safari scene and you want to have a zebra or two, or a lion to the picture. With this kit in hand you will have everything that you need to learn how to draw thirty-two zoo animals in a variety of poses.

The kit includes eight colored pencils, a sharpener, a drawing pad with sixty-four pages, and the drawing cards. On each card, the illustrator shows you, using a number of easy-to-follow steps, how to draw an animal in a basic pose. If you want your animal in n alternate pose, turn the card over and you will find your animal doing something very different. For example, if you decide to draw the toucan you can either draw it sitting on a branch or (turn the card over) you can learn how to draw it in flight.

Young artists will surely enjoy using this cleverly designed kit.
