When undertaking faces aim to teach one feature at a time; the following tip may prove useful. For example, you are learning how to draw eyes, sketch out the facial outline and other features, leaving the eye area blank; make photocopies of this facial sketch, one for each child. With this basic template the students can draw in their own eyes following your instructions. Then they have a completed work which they can color and decorate. The next lesson you can work on another feature, such as the nose. Simple cartooning is great fun for kids of all ages and a great start. Just be mindful not to select too well-known or favorite characters as this can prove discouraging should the outcome not meet their expectations. Manga characters are quite simple, are basically recognizable but also leave much for individual interpretation.
So you want to learn how to draw cartoons? Heres some of the equipment youll need. Everything can be found at an art supply store or sometimes an office supply store, and it will cost you less than $20 or so. The first thing you will need is a basic sketch book. You can choose whatever size you want. Some people like to have a small one to keep in their pocket or backpack at all times. That way, if they get an idea for something, they can jot it down. Or if you are riding the bus or subway, or waiting in line somewhere, or see someone that looks funny and would make a great character, you can pull it out and start drawing them right there. (Dont get caught! Not everyone likes to be made into a cartoon.)
Round Stickers You can buy round stickers in various sizes easily and cheaply from stationers and they can be used to create lovely pottery with white spots on a coloured background. All you need to do is stick your round stickers all over the surface your dry and clean bisque (unpainted, unglazed pottery) in a random pattern. Rub the stickers to make sure they are securely attached to the pottery. Then paint all the surface area in your chosen colour, this can be done with a paintbrush or sponge. To get a nice solid even colour at least two coats of ceramic paint are recommended. Once the paint is completely dry peel off the stickers and your pottery is ready for glazing and firing. If you cant get manage to lift the stickers at the edge a good tip is to take a pin and stick it in the sticker and lift.
The great part about mindful drawing is that it is not just for kids! In fact, my wife is a Certified Zentangle Teacher and regularly sees the amazing benefits in adults who practice this form of mindful drawing. Just like meditation, mindfulness with a pen can also reduce blood pressure, reduce heart rate, and have long-term benefits with depression and anxiety. Have you ever found yourself just doodling on a scrap piece of paper. There is a good chance that when you are making lines or dots or shading with your pen or pencil, you are focused on present moment. Perhaps if the idea of meditation seems to be not your cup of tea but you could use to manage your stress; why not consider mindful drawing, doodling, or zentangle. The goal is not to make art to hang on your fridge but rather to give your restless mind a much need break from the endless chatter.
Dot will debut in over 3,300 stores in the United States and Great Britain in July, and internationally in August. The perfume range is priced from $48 to $89, body lotion for $45 and shower gel for $40. Dot comes after Daisy and Lola, all three aimed at young women with the latest one seemingly geared to even younger teens. The new launch gives permission to play with perfume, at any age. Dots summer release is definitely appropriate as there is a tropical element unlike its sister scents. Although maintaining the right amount of freshness and sweetness, Dot is also chic and charming at the same time. Not only Marc Jacob perfume but also his perfume bottles are fun and can bought just to put them somewhere in a room to light up the decor. This time the bottle is cute ladybird-inspired one which is adorned with dots and butterflies which is supposed to evoke visualisations of "a ladybug with butterflies alighting on it." According to the designer, the idea of the hybrid butterfly-ladybugs suggests a sort of free spirit and femininity and playfulness.
