Feed My Sheep 7-DVD Set
While they may seem pricey at first glance, this set is the next best thing to having Barry Stebbing teach art in your home. The DVDs cover each lesson in the text, so you can watch or even follow along as Barry completes the exercises and provides helpful tips and guidance for you and your young artists. An introduction and an explanation of the art supplies needed are provided on the first DVD. Although the presentation is not professional-quality in terms of sound and lighting, they are useful if you do not feel you can teach or facilitate the lessons in the book.
Both art text and workbook, this large volume contains 260 daily lessons and can be used over a span of years. While over 100 lessons deal with drawing, Barry has branched out into other areas as well, including color, penmanship, art appreciation, measurement, and painting. Most of the student's work is done in the book, but the painting lessons use sturdy posterboard cards (referred to as "paint packs") which come with the book. Materials needed include a 2B or 4B drawing pencil, kneaded eraser, ruler, black extra-fine point marker pen, colored pencils (12),ketch book, poster board, paint brushes (3 or 4), and acrylic paints (2-oz. of red, blue, yellow and white). A well-rounded course with lots of variety. 310 pgs.
