More than 80 years ago, Mr. Walter T. Foster set out to prove that anyone can learn to draw. The “how to” art books he wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, and shipped on his own soon grew tremendously in popularity! Today the Walter Foster Publishing company carries on the tradition, developing books and kits that encourage creativity and spark imaginations.
