Excellent book with fun, simple to follow ideas and plans. We're personally using it for homeschooling our kids in art and to supplement other art classes.

"Now in a revised and expanded edition, this perennial best-seller is the definitive guide for parents, grandparents and teachers on how to encourage drawing.

Mona Brooke's easy-to-follow, lesson-by-lesson approach to drawing has yielded astounding results with children of all ages and beginning adults. Her unique drawing program has created a revolution in the field of education and a sense of delight and pride among the thousands of students who have learned to draw through her "Monart method".

This revised edition includes the following new materials:
Information on multiple intelligence and the seven ways to learn.
An inspirational chapter on helping children with learning problems.
An integrated-studies chapter, with projects geared for reading, math, science, ESL, multicultural studies, and environmental awareness.
A sixteen page color insert and hundreds of sample illustrations.

This invaluable teaching aid not only guides readers through the basics, but also gives important advice on creating a nurturing environment in which self-expression and creativity can flourish. Both practical and enlightening, "Drawing With Children" inspires educators and parents to bring out the artist in all of us."

I enjoyed this book and the author's entire approach to the subject. Reading this not only was helpful to me, as an artist, but it was a wonderful addition to creative time I spent with my own children and grandchildren. I highly recommend it.

Great book. I actually started drawing from this book - rather than from the famous "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain," which I also liked.
