Art-iculating Kid Creativity Art House Giveaway

Do any of you remember the artist from public television with the big hair? While he was teaching he'd say "draw, draw, draw". I can't remember his name but I always loved his show! He made art fun and easy to learn. Now our kids can learn techniques with Art House! This DVD series is so awesome!

Art House Volume 1: Basic Shapes and Animals has received the Dove Family Foundation Seal of Approval. Also endorsed by KIDS FIRST!, it's available for purchase November 17th.

Developing artist skills at an early age has proven to promote problem solving, communication, curiosity and perspective. Developed by Amy Wilkes, a USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate and Tiffany Jennings, an elementary school teacher, Art House DVD series teaches children ages 3 and up how to draw using basic shapes - squares, circles, triangles, etc. - as a base to illustrate almost anything.

Many schools are being forced to cut their budgets and art is generally one thing that they begin cutting back on. Art is not only therapeutic but it also unlocks developmental abilities. Your child may miss out on Art through school but now you can offer it at home.

Please visit www.InTheArtHouse.com for more information. Art House is available for purchase at www.amazon.com.

Giveaway: Post a comment telling me what fun art projects you do at home. Please be sure to leave your email address. Giveaway ends 11/15/2009.
