My wife managed to find a great Norman Rockwell book for me at the latest homeschool swap. It's called Rockwell on Rockwell, How I Make a Picture. It's a compilation of lessons that Rockwell did in the fifties or sixties for the Famous Artist School. (You know the one... "draw this mouse or pirate"... and yeah, they're still around but I'm not sure why.) Imagine having a book on how to draw or paint by someone who can actually draw and paint... better than practically anyone. It's an awesome book. Will it help? That's another issue entirely. But if you can find a copy, it's definitely worth your trouble.
