I watched the DVDs in the "Drawing with Mark" series: "Let's Go to the Zoo/Zoo Stories" and "Take Flight/ As the Wheel Turns" (Big City Publishing). This is a nice way for young artists to learn how to draw.

Mark Marderosian, the artist, can help kids learn a ton from his simple style of doing great artwork. The video goes fast, but not too fast. I liked how Mark was funny and my favorite drawing was the plane. This video was fun.

There were 10 drawings to learn on two DVDs I watched. I recommend you get them both. The plane was pretty hard to do, but it was so worth it! He has lots more videos for you to enjoy. Check his website: drawingwithmark.com
