An Intro to Art Techniques, from the DK Art School, is a massive tome I purchased years ago when I resumed painting. Though much of the information seems basic now, I still refer back to this book often for things I can’t store in my mind. Techniques in the use of color was what I needed to learn initially

The DK Art School series provides all the fundamental techniques both adult and juvenile artists need. An Introduction to Acrylics is part of the DK Art School series.

The DK Art School series provides all the fundamental techniques both adult and juvenile artists need. At the heart of each book are twelve projects that explore the methods of the great masters.

Each volume of the series focuses on a specific medium and subject, so you can choose precisely what you want to learn - from acrylic figure to oil portrait, and from pastel still life to watercolor landscape.

I really can't complain too much; this book cost me $4.73 with shipping. (Shipping took forever through hippo books, but that's another story...). Each chapter begins with a brief history of the topic covered. These range from Drawing, Persoective, Oil Painting, Pastels, etc. Each section within the topic is approx. 2 pages long. There is at least one instructional per topic. In this I mean that someone painted a picture, and they walk you through the basic steps they took to achieve their final result, as well as materials used. I'm not sure I found anything in the book particularly useful or inspiring, but I enjoyed perusing it. If you have no idea what you're doing, then I think this would be a good book to learn about some of the more popular techniques, but if you're looking to expound on knowledge you already have, then I think this book is somewhat out dated and doesn't contain a lot to be gained.

I bought this for my 10 year old son. He likes the book. He shows different types of art that he is also interested in and if he wants a more info we can get a book on that subject.
Even though it was used it was still in good condition.

Nothing personal
covers all the basics and more, I would recommend it for people starting out on their own, helps you know what is what, most art stores can be overwhelming to a novice, this book shares insights on materials and technique,

You name it, it seems to be in this book. Beginning artists should take a look. If you've read through the whole thing, then I guess the only thing left to do is try some of the things that are in the book! And it seems it would provide a good enough base of knowledge from which one could expand his or her capabilities. It is worth returning to for refresher info as well.

Wonderful colored photos, as one would expect from a DK book. I'll keep this one on my shelf for quite some time.

like all dk books, the illustrations are beautiful. the layout very attractive without being too busy. straight forward information some of which i was not aware of altho i am an artist! i never read "clean brushes in cold water" anywhere. i guess it's something the brush companies keep to themselvea to boost sales - it was NEVER printed on the back of any packages of brushes - many of which were very expensive. that info alone paid the book.
only minus is that is very heavy and one must stay stationary as opposed to being able to easily cart it around.

We bought this for our 14-year-old nephew, who is just starting to exhibit an interest in art. It is truly a great introduction to drawing and perspective, painting (oil, watercolor, acrylics), and even mixed media. Don't expect great depth in any one area, but its easy to read and use, heavily illustrated to keep kids' attentions, has a nice glossary. All in all, a really really great value and a book that is exactly what its title says it is.

Super P
Purchased this book for a friend. It is good basic all around entry book to art materials for all types of arts - oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels and or course drawing. He is finding it useful. There are many such books out there. He is finding this one very useful.

Good book. Basic collection of concepts and ideas relating to art methods, techniques, and tools. Definitely more informational than instructional. Illustrations are good, and explanations are decent.I would recommend for the young artist around the age of 10 who is interested in art. This book will definately encourage a young artist if they have an inquisitive mind.
