We know that research has shown time and time again, the importance of art in the educational process. Children who are exposed to music and art instruction do much better in reading, math and science. They develop greater curiosity about, understanding of, and appreciation for, the subject matter being taught. We know that providing arts in education stimulates better behavior, personal esteem and socialization skills. The activities in this book are not intended to replace core instruction, but rather to enhance and extend the concepts taught within this practice. Many of these patterns may be used as independent practice and are applicable to both school and home learning.
We have created three different volumes that teach children how to draw in a step-by-step manner that builds confidence and ability in young learners. Volume two features twelve easy to draw pets: kitten, cat, rabbit, bird, hamster, fish, puppy, dog, snake, mouse, frog, and turtle. It is our sincere hope that your students will experience success in learning to draw and illustrate their academic works.
