In July 2012, Steps4Kids will release its Steps4Kids to Draw DVD with approximately 90 minutes of video modeling to help emerging artists learn how to draw shapes, animals, people and things. For children learning to draw shapes, the "Shapes" section shows how to draw a circle, square, triangle, rhombus/diamond, heart, cube and star. Each shape uses colored graphics to help children learn to identify the shapes as well! For more advanced artists, the Steps4Kids drawing DVD shows how to draw animals that you may find on a farm, in the house, in the water or at the zoo! (20 total) The "People" track shows how to draw 5 faces, introduces "profiles" and demonstrates how to draw basic clothing. The "Things" track shows how to draw a bike, car, flowers and more! Each section (Animals, People, Shapes and Things) has "all play" features that enable viewers to play multiple demonstrations at once but also enables viewers to select each item individually to practice their favorite items!
My friends kids had so much fun with the DVD and she was happy that the DVD kept the kids busy so she could cook dinner. The kids were so quite and into the DVD that she found her self checking on the more often because she couldn't believe they were entertained by the DVD. The kids still like watching the DVD and really are learning to draw.
