So, you think only a handful of super-talented artists can draw? Think again! The pictures in our panel above were drawn by ordinary kids using a very simple and fun drawing method called Monart. Created by the noted artist and teacher Mona Brookes, the Monart method provides children with an alphabet of five basic shapes that markedly improves their visual perception and drawing skill. Ms. Barb is a master of this method, and she’ll have your kids ages 6 to 8 drawing like little Rembrandts in no time. Children will have fun using markers, colored pencils, charcoal, oil, and chalk pastels. They’ll also paint on canvas using acrylics and watercolors. Come create masterpieces of animals, nature, sea life, landscapes, architecture, fantasy, people and more.
