Item description for Bruno Munari: Drawing A Tree (About the Workshop Series) by Bruno Munari...

ABOUT WORKSHOP The books in the new workshop series describe different methods of learning, from educational activities to explanatory pamphlets to poetic play. The illuminating, gentle genius of Bruno Munari offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions, and illustrative pictures to get adults and children, teachers and students working together. These three books, the first in the series, are classics from the hand of a magician.

When drawing a tree, always remember that every branch is more slender than the one that came before. Also note that the trunk splits into two branches, then those branches split in two, then those in two, and so on, and so on, until you have a full tree, be it straight, squiggly, curved up, curved down, or bent sideways by the wind.

Paperback, 5.75 x 8.25 in. / 88 pgs / 88 color.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bruno Munari: Drawing A Tree (About the Workshop Series)?

an effective, simple book  Jan 6, 2007
I am an adult who draws stick figures (and even those don't look so hot). I purchased this book wanting to improve my skills so that I could draw with my kids and not feel like a total drawing idiot.

I looked through the book once and, after following Munari's simple instructions, am now able to draw a very convincing tree. His method is simple, but very effective. It can be built upon to draw very sophisticated trees. I recommend this for adults and children alike.
Simple and practical  Dec 5, 2004
"But I can't even draw a straight line!"

A) Straight lines are over-rated, and B) You'd be surprised. This is a wonderful, simple book. It seems aimed at adults none too sure of their own drawing skills, but who must or just want to teach kids to draw.

Even a very young child, but one who's willing to give up the "lollipop tree", will get great results from Munari's simple directions. Munari's tree is a simple thing: the letter Y, drawn again and again. Within that framework, though, there is endless variation. Munari encourages both personal creativity and a systematic exploration of the visual possibilities.

This is a friendly approach to building basic drawing skills. Its second message is just as important, though: the image can be analyzed as well as enjoyed, and visual analysis gives choices. I really wish my early teachers had used more of Munari's wisdom in their teaching.
