    We have been having fun learning all the elements of art, WHILE we create artwork! I love these vids they go well with my lesson plans. The theme this year is At the Beach, so tomorrow we are drawing a crab while we break it up into simple shapes as we draw.

    This series of videos is FANTASTIC! I have always given my High School and Middle School students the Crystal videos on the Elements and Principles and frankly they are boring and the kids cannot relate. The artwork used in these videos is modern, fun, and interesting to the students. There was a lot of "whoa's" and "how cool!" comments from my Middle Schoolers today. PLEASE make a series on the Principles of Design that match this set of videos!
