Format: DVD
Preschool-age children often long to draw recognizable characters, but are held back by a lack of technical skill. Perfectionists like my eldest daughter can find themselves reluctant to draw at all, afraid of disappointing results. Art House is a new series of how-to-draw educational DVDs aimed at young children ages three and up that uses four simple shapes - circles, squares, triangles, and ovals - to create lovable yet simple line drawings.

Volume 1: Basic Shapes and Animals features teacher Emily and a live class of four children (two boys, two girls). Starting with the basic shapes, Emily goes on to demonstrate drawing a fish, dog, bird, monkey, and dinosaur. Young viewers can grab crayons and paper and follow along with the class in real-time. Short, live-action music videos feature catchy tunes, children playing, and animals romping, follow each drawing segment and allow children to put the finishing touches on their drawings. You'll need to pause the DVD if they wish to spend some time coloring.

A focus on diversity, drawing according to your ability and imagination, and dealing with mistakes is an integral part of the program. The camera cuts away regularly to show the progress of the young artists, as well as displaying their finished work. This is a great help in pointing out that new two drawings (or artistic visions) are alike, and that everyone draws a bit differently.

Our family enjoyed an extended drawing class with Art House, Volume 1. My six-year-old produced some great drawings despite her initial skepticism. The colorful DVD case design led her to expect the program to be boring for some reason, but she's now a huge fan.

I bought this video for my 7 yr. old daughter. She did all the drawings in the video within an hour and then wanted to do them again. My 5 yr. old son also joined the fun and he was able to follow along and make the drawings. Great video! My kids also used small Dry Erase boards when creating the drawings which helps lessen frustration if they make a mistake and they can easily erase and keep up with the video. It also wastes less paper.

Good video for 4-12 year olds. If they can draw shapes the video takes them through making 5 animals with simple directions and then has photos and music of the real animal to give them time to color their picture in

Very simple not worth buying in my opinion. I actually returned this video. You can find better videos on YouTube.
