Learn To Draw Cars, If You Were Invisible

For this year, I bought an instruction art book, for DJ. Both my kids love to draw, and I thought the book would be helpful. DJ however has found it more helpful to watch, and follow the art instructional videos. He has been practicing his drawing of his hotwheel cars, and is getting pretty darn good. He is starting to do different dimensions, of the cars. Below is a video to help your budding artist learn to draw cars. I will add the next step, next Monday. For tomorrow's writing prompt, DJ will write about being invisible. I usually tell him a day ahead, so he can begin to think about the assignment. We have started a new chore calendar, here at Melissa's Homeschool. This is mostly for Caitlin, as she seems to think she does not have to help out around the house, unless she sees fit to do see. This has been extremely disruptive, and I have to do something about it. We are finishing up our sign language for colors, and will be moving on next week.

How are your kids enjoying their lessons,Melissa? My daughter's interest in school has been dwindling so I'm very much alarmed. =(

I think all kids have dry spells when it comes to school. Caitlin especially, but she is young. DJ only once in a while. Try to find a different way for her to learn to make it more exciting for her.

Melissa said...

Nice to see you back here. I hope everything is OK. Have a great day, and don't be such a stranger.

What an interesting writing topic you gave DJ. I can't wait to hear his writing on this subject. He is such a good writer. I also enjoyed the videos on drawing.

It will be posted today, be sure to check for it.
