The Steps4Kids crew has done it again. This time they released a DVD that shows kids step by step how to draw over 40 different items. The first time I had it I had an hour of peace & quiet which was wonderful. Each of my 2 kids (Jake 9) and (Lizy 6) were able to draw at their own pace, at age level and according to their own ability. It was hilarious to see both heads looking up and then down, up and down over and over as they watched the video - and it was wonderful that for once they weren't arguing over it the whole time.
The video has several different segments where the kids learn to draw several things in a category - Jake & Lizy's favorite were the animals. One of the nicest features of the DVD is that each category can be played as a segment or you can do each drawing individually so kids can keep up and go at their own pace.
There is almost 90 minutes of video that teaches children how to draw shapes, animals, people and things.
The "shapes" section shows how to draw a circle, square, triangle, rhombus/diamond heart, cube & star. Each shape uses colored graphics to help children learn to identify the shapes as well!
You will also find these sections:
- Animals - on the farm, in the house, in the water or at the zoo (20 total).
- People - draw 5 faces, learn to draw profiles and how to draw basic clothing.
- Things - learn to draw a bike, car, flowers and more!
Each section (Animals, People, Shapes & Things) has an "all play" feature that enables viewers to play several demonstrations at once but you can also select each item individually to practice your favorite.
It has already received several well deserved awards including the Creative Child's Magazine "DVD of the Year" award and "Seal of Excellence".
