Re: Drawing with Children - Mona Brookes

 I use some of it. I take pains to stress that it's a method Brookes
developed to make drawing easier for kids,
but it's not the only way to do things. I like it for confidence-building
for beginners.
 I do the bird with my sixes to provide a subject for an assignment on
simple perspective. They like it, but may choose to do any other kind of
bird for the assignment. They are marked on their use of perspective, so
they have to add lots of other things to their drawings.
  I left the carousel horse lesson for a substitute, who was not an art
specialist. It went well and the students enjoyed it.
It's probably worth the 20 bucks but it's not the Bible of art.
