About the Author

Whenever art instructor Eric Mantle talks art with his students, he likes to send them home witha drawing that also provides a visual explanation of the idea. One student collected so many of thesethat he told Mantle he had enough to make a book. Taking the student s cue, Mantle assembled his drawings into a unique way to present thefundamental principles of studio art in a clear and concise manner. His book, "A Visual Guide to Classical Art Theory, " released by Parkhurst Brothers, Publishers, is the result.
With more than three decades in the studio and in the classroom, Mantle has designed hisbook to serve as a text for college and high school instructors and students, as well as a reference for professional and amateur artists.
As an art student and then later as a college professor, Mantle said, I was always frustratedby instructional books that introduced visual concepts primarily as verbal descriptions accompanied byunclear diagrams. I have written (drawn) a book that explains visual art principles in a primarily visualmanner with a minimal amount of copy. "
