Sometimes it takes some research to teach the things we need to teach our children in homeschooling.
I am not a person who draws. But my kids are... I am more of the 'art history' type art buff. But in the last year, my children have started to really require me to show them how to use the techniques that they are being asked to use... so I have stepped up and am starting by teaching myself to draw with all the many mediums and techniques that I am requiring them to use in our schooling. I read through all of the sections of Live Education on drawing with different mediums, I have looked online for different techniques and new ways of looking at the materials.... and finally, I am getting the hang of drawing (after some serious mess-ups... of course).
These are some of my most recent pictures that will be examples for main lesson book drawings in the near future:
