Drawing From The Manikin introduces viewers to figure drawing through the use of a wooden manikin. Artist Larry Withers demonstrates how to draw a series of oval and circles to create the anatomy of the figure and the outline of the form. He also demonstrates adding contour lines to show the curves of the muscles. A sequential demonstration features Withers describing the names of the different body parts. Withers then shows viewers how to shade figures to create a sense of realism. A list of chapters shows the different poses, and each chapter describes a different perspective of anatomy. Included with the DVD is a collection of PDF files containing photos of the manikin in different poses, which can be printed for later preference. This DVD is recommended for upper-grade levels. --School Arts Magazine

They should start teaching kids to draw in this manner in grade school! Then later on, teach them perspective, line, shading, etc.
It even has instructions on how to draw a female figure using a generic manikin.
