Steve Harpster has created a series of books that show kids (and adults) an easy to understand way to draw. Based on letters and numbers, everyone can learn how to create a variety of creatures. The four books in the series are Drawing Animals with Numbers, Drawing Monsters with Letters, Drawing Seas Animals with Numbers and Drawing Really Cute Baby Animals with Lower Case Letters. From these series of books you will definitely be ready for the next school project.
My kids love to draw and create, but we occasionally get stumped on how to draw an animal like a puppy or lion. Kids don't want a hugely detailed, realistic interpretation of an animal. They want to create a picture that tells a story. By following the steps in the Harptoons books, you will show everyone that you have a creative side.
My other son is more of a rules follower. He chose the lion, which is based on the number 11. He painstakingly drew, erased and drew again till his picture was an exact (or very close to it) replica of the pictures in the book. Knowing him, he will show his ability to his art teacher in school. We will be seeing a lot of lions in his art class.
The best part about these books and the techniques is that it is easy to follow. Everyone can write a letter or number. With the addition of a few lines and embellishments, you have a great picture. Now when you're at dinner where you can draw on the table cloth, everyone will be impressed with your creativity. No one has to know your little secret.
Drawing Animals with Numbers app can be purchased at the iTunes store for $1.99.
