I'd like to incorporate regular structured/intentional art lessons in our home. Ideally in a dual-approach--art appreciation, but also, drawing/painting as a skill.
When I looked on Rainbow Resource I found 1 2 3 I can draw! by Irene Luxacher and liked that it's it's not a "follow these steps to recreate this picture" type of thing, but rather it's teaching the basic skills of how to draw, but according to the Amazon Reviews it's very brief. Only 7 pictures all together it would seem.
Dover has some simple drawing books that I like but they are more "follow these steps to recreate this simple picture" type books.
Is there anything that is more of a mix between 123 I Can Draw and the Dover Drawing Books? If so, what?
Also, there is a 123 I Can Paint book that I like the looks of, also by Irene Luxacher, but again, there doesn't seem to be anything out there that I could pair it with. I know nothing about art.
What is out there that is accessible for a non-artsy parent and their Ker?
