COURSE OVERVIEW

Drawing Textbook by Bruce MacIntyre; the seven aspects of three-dimensional drawing, cartoon-style!  One to four days per week; one to four quarters per year.

COURSE NOTES

ART PRACTICE: Three to four days weekly, for 20 minutes daily.
 
Step-by-step drawing instruction, introducing three-dimensional drawing, using a cartoon format.  Instructs and drills the principles of surface, size, surface lines, overlapping, shading, density and foreshortening.  There are some great posters and charts in the back of the book that illustrate all of the concepts to be learned in this book.  This book teaches the child to break larger or more complex pictures into bite-sized pieces, practices pen grip, and teaches the child to work sequentially through a book or lesson.  You will only need one book for the family.  This book may take more than one year to complete, and that is just fine.
 
Each “lesson” is made up of five or more figures to draw, with very short instructions given for each figure.  Spend one quality art period per week with your student, reviewing old lessons and discussing the new lessons for the week.  Have the student read the instructions aloud to you or into a tape recorder to be sure he learns how to think through drawing and learns its vocabulary.  For the rest of the week, have the student practice independently.  Each day have him do the next figure in the series in three different sizes—on a 3 x 5 card, on a regular piece of paper, and on the driveway with sidewalk chalk, perhaps?  Have some fun here with size and the medium used.  
 
To report this course, give the lesson numbers completed.  For a work sample, send a copy of the student’s best work for the quarter—in three different sizes.
