I just purchased this wonderful "Learn to Draw" book from amazon and it is a Cartoon of Fun bringing me back to when I was a kid growing up in the 1950's in New York City, when I used many of these types of books from my public library to begin learning how to draw cartoons and then draw more... and beyond... :-)

This book includes a whole history of Disney characters from "Mickey and Minnie Mouse" forward to "Lion King" and Pixar "Toy Story", "Finding Nemo", "Cars" etc. See if it's in your local bookstores...to flip through the pages...

This book can be fun for you as a teacher, to simply learn how to draw popular cartoon and movie characters using a proven step-by-step "shapes and outline" method... Then as you become comfortable as a doodling artist, you can share this fun with your students in the classroom...


For Easier Drawing Skills (Pre-School and K-3) go to Learn to Draw Tabby Cat Books


Drawing and Coloring are fundamental arts skills valuable across all curriculum, I use it to teach all subjects.

Just as we teach Language Arts and Literacy, we need to teach Visual Arts and Visual Literacy: The Internet and Mobile Communication Devices are the new generation's "tools of the trades". The Evolution of upright posture and human hands is deep in our DNA; skilled "handcrafts" continue to be vital for the survival and pleasures of our species...

Enough said: get and stay "handy"... it can help you and your students turn-off the TV...

"print, cut, fold, and glue". So now you can Learn to Draw... & Learn to Build Models with paper... which then leads you to build

tabletop Toy Theaters with cardboard and perform plays and make videos of your plays...


ps: I am not suggesting that every student be able to copy realistic drawings of cartoon characters, drawing and art is much more than that...

Especially in the young grades, there is no need to pressure children to "draw like I do" and "stay within the lines"... I am a strong advocate of Montessori Explorative and Expressive Arts Education. These books can be arrows in your quiver; there are many ways to see and draw and color your world and your classroom...

The main point here is to develop the "Habit of Being an Artist," of "Creating Art", "Doing Art", "Being Art"...
