Learning to draw doesn’t get more exciting than this! Young artists will revel in the variety of explosive drawing subjects featured in Learn to Draw Tanks, Aircraft & Armored Vehicles, from AH-64 Apache and UH-60 Black Hawk choppers to a guided missile submarine, F-16 fighter jet, B-52 bomber, and more. Each drawing lesson starts with a basic shape, such as a rectangle or oval, and then progresses step by step to a realistic rendering of the featured subject, including a color final.
