COURSE OVERVIEW

Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Animals

COURSE NOTES

Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Animals, done about 10 - 15 minutes a day, three to five days weekly, for one to four quarters.  This counts as Art Practice.  Using no words, Mr. Emberley teaches line drawing using the simplest of shapes, squiggles and letters.  This program teaches drawing, sequential reasoning, breaking larger parts into smaller parts, and following directions.  It strengthens fine motor movement and fosters independent thinking.  The child draws a variety of animals—mouse, dog, gorilla, dragon, bird, porcupine, crab, cat, wolf, caterpillar, etc.  Show your little one how to use the book, then have him use it independently one to four times weekly, on white boards, chalkboards, sidewalks, in shaving cream on windows or tub walls, with Wikke-Sticks, etc.  This should be one of your first suggestions to your student when he is hanging on your elbow, intoning, "Mom.  Mom.  Mom…"
 

Scheduling Suggestions: 15min 3-5 days/wk
