Product Description

Art Magic “Line Switch” Creative Drawing Method

I developed this creative drawing method in 2002 and have been using it ever since to help my students draw creatively and gain confidence in their drawing skills!   I am super excited to share it with you!

This product is going to teach you how to teach the Art Magic Line Switch Creative Drawing Method™ !

At the same time you are learning, you will also be provided with a lesson that you can use to teach this method to your students!

The drawings that your students create will “magically” and automatically

get them to use the Art Elements line, color, shape, space and value!

Students also will utilize the Design Principles, Variety, Contrast, Unity, Balance, Repetition, Pattern, Emphasis and Proportion!

This lesson works really well as a first art project and can be used along side introducing the Art Elements and Design Principles. Producing a Line Switch drawing helps students to see first hand how the Elements and Principles help them to make “good” , original art works!

This method also produces art works that are suitable to color in.

So teaching Color Schemes and Color mixing works in well with Line Switch Drawings!

This product will lead you through the Line Switch Creative Drawing Method steps using a simple flower as a subject matter. Once you try it yourself, try this lesson with your students! It’s fun and amazing to see the results!

Give it a try!
