The Artabet: How to Draw Anything in the World with 6 Universal Lines

0 ratings
Twenty-five years ago, I discovered a secret about teaching art to children. 

After teaching thousands of shapes to hundreds of students I discovered that every shape in the world can be drawn with 6 universal lines. 

I call these 6 lines the Artabet. 

These 6 lines are like vowels. They are the basic elements for the language of art. 

If children master these 6 lines, the possibilities are endless. 

Who is this course for?

The Artabet was created for teachers and educators. The material is designed for students aged 5 to 12 years old. 

Over the years, I've held workshops and classes at schools across British Columbia. This book reflects those workshops, giving teachers a structured and easy way to teach art classes.
