"I found myself really inspired by the smart and fresh approaches to student projects. As a whole, I thought they functioned well as an intersection of new and old approaches to drawing, touching on obvious, time-tested approaches such as continuous contour of plants, but also opening up the idea of drawing to new techniques such as copy machine transfer ""It is rare that a book can communicate effectively across the landscape of art, addressing the multivalent range of students' experience levels and interests. I believe this book does an exemplary job of addressing students' needs as both thinkers and makers, and I would gladly use this text in my classroom." - Dylan Collins, Kent State University"
