There is a great video on David Hockney
s work. It is part of a series called Behind the Scenes with Penn and
Teller. From PBS. Hockney draws a chair and thinks out loud while drawing
about not drawing the chair so much, but rather, the space of the chair.
The 3-d of it. Great video for kids.
Good luck
