WHERE THE SHADOWS HIDE
Every child deserves this fun, engaging outdoor visual adventure while learning to see like an artist. The artist-author guides the reader in a one-day exploration of where the shadows hide and how the sun and moon influence what is seen. A book for the family to share while visually learning about their surrounding neighborhood. The reader will never see the world as before. It prepares both adults and children for the next step of learning to draw realistically.
5.0 out of 5 stars Must have! Granddaughter & I had fun immediately.
Very user friendly! The examples, instructions and visuals worked for me as well as my grandchildren.
It teaches you to “see” and improves your art, while engaging children in a fun way.
You can tell the Author loves art and teaching.
I plan to buy more as gifts & reference material.
5.0 out of 5 stars Should be taught in classrooms!
I think this book is a revelation in understanding how an artist sees, or at least it was for me. It should win a prize or something, and at the very least be taught in school. I'm very impressed, and the author deserves congratulations on doing something that's useful in this world full of not-useful stuff.
Thank you so much for the amazing book. You did such a skillful job laying things out I've learned a lot just by reading it today. Skylight! Never knew there was such a thing but of course there is. I can't wait to practice myself but I'm also getting to play Friday mornings with a very sweet, precocious 4 year old boy from down the street. He loves art and these exercises will be an amazing addition to our fun.
