Product Description:

This instructional drawing course is great for kids or families looking for a gentle introduction to how to draw. Artist Barry Stebbing, author of the How Great Thou Art programs, guides viewers through 6 lessons, drawing right along with the viewer. The lessons vary between 45 minutes to over an hour in length. Lessons are: Fundamentals I, Fundamentals II, Perspective, Portraits & Anatomy, Animals, and Treasures Around the Home. The first lesson starts out with the very basics; viewers will draw basic shapes, learn simple shading techniques and draw objects such as a fruit bowl. The first four lessons are perfect for younger children or very beginning artists, as the drawing projects all consist of simple objects, scenes and cartoons (like Wally the Worm). Interspersed into each lesson and example are basic drawing concepts, including shading, portraying three-dimensional objects, perspective, layering colors and more. The last two lessons get into more lifelike and still-life drawing, including realistic "portraits" of farm animals and a grouped still life with an apple, decanter, vase and flower.

These lessons have also been aired on the Homeschool Channel, and How Great Thou Art offers homework PDF files available for free download on their site. Homework pages are grouped by age; 6-9, 10-13 and 14 to adult. Unlike How Great Thou Art's other DVDs, this one is a stand-alone drawing course. It would make a great drawing course for the whole family especially if you have not completed one of their other drawing courses. I think the content of much of the course is more appropriate for young artists just starting out, and while more drawing practice won't hurt anyone, the examples in the first few lessons are quite simple, and Mr. Stebbing appears to be addressing younger children at times. Materials needed for the course include a sketch pad and a 120-color colored pencil set. Approx. 223 min. - Jess

Couple of my kids are interested in learning to draw and this sounds like something we might be able to handle and squeeze into our schedule. *fingers crossed*

We enjoyed his Painting DVD set and so thought that we would try this. My children range in age from 6-12 and all enjoy sitting down and trying this together.

Does this include instructions for drawing pencils? Or just colored pencils? And are there good spots to break it up for younger kids?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This includes instruction for drawing and colored pencils. The lessons are approximately 50 minutes each and could be divided up for younger children.

Wonderful Lessons!
We are using this weekly for ages 7 to 11 in our homeschool with varied levels of drawing ability. While the actual lessons are intended to be longer, we break them up a little more. Whenever Mr Stebbing gets out a new sheet of paper, we stop the lesson for the day; this makes the lessons to be around 20 minutes each which is perfect for my kids. The "hardest" part of doing it together is if one child wants to add a little more detail or takes longer but then the other kids doodle or start adding their own detail. Breaking it up like this, we should get around 10-12 lessons out of these 3 DVD's; a very good deal. He breaks drawing into very manageable bits while adding artist language naturally. Every once in awhile, there is even a picture from a great artist mixed right into the lesson. Children do not create one lengthy picture but lots of small projects, which we all like. My kids love this and I only wish we would have added it years ago. I intend to look into his other DVD's once we are through with this.

I love the way that the teacher ties creation to drawing and encourages individuality.

Beginning Drawing
Beginning Drawing is a fabulous art dvd! My children love this. It's not plain or slow. Not too long into the video your child will have a great picture. I would recommend the age of 6/7 up. The smaller children will enjoy trying it out with the older ones though.
