Book Club: Foundations of Drawing by Al Gury

 

Great book for beginner and new artist to learn the basics of creating art. The author tries to introduce the reader to different ways to create art by using different mediums. The book does go into detail on the technical aspect of drawing for the reader. The author explaining different techniques and proving tips to help the reader create their own masterpiece. However, the book doesn’t provide a lot of step by step illustrations or tips for the reader to follow it more of a suggestion book to get you started on your path in the world of art by showing different tips, mediums and skills that other artists use. I would recommend this book for someone who has some drawing experience but wants to learn more.

Book Club: We the People by Juan Williams

 

As suggestion in the title. We are people the author Juan Williams introduces the reader on the life and work of a new generation of American Founders, who honor the original Founders’ vision, even as they have quietly led revolutions in American politics, immigration, economics, sexual behavior, and reshaped the landscape of the nation. The idea of freedom and what America stands for is always changing and each generation shapes that change. As a political Science major, I enjoy how Williams shows hard and long journey that America has took to get to the point it is today. The hope that the next generation will take us forward to achieve better and greater things. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to leaner how laws and government have changed in the world over the last few centuries.
