Complete-A-Sketch <br>Volume I For Elementary Students - Junior High

The primary focus of Volume I is orthographic, or a flat two-dimensional line art. Two dimensional line art is used every day by all types of people. It is a great skill to have. The Volume 1 lessons start with the most basic shapes, squares, circles, etc. In addition, the shapes are named so the shape names can be learned. After this simple beginning, the difficulty builds and becomes more interesting. This allows for quick successes and fun. Quickly, the student gains confidence and builds on new skills to move on to increasingly more complex sketches.

The Complete-A-Sketch series is reproducible for your family; your child can start working with this book as early as age 5 or 6. It will not only prove to be an enjoyable learning experience, but will teach the serious aspect of drawing from the very beginning. It teaches by example, and draws attention to detail to provide a basis for all types of precision drawing. Written and illustrated by Melvin G. Peterman.

For a view of how this technical drawing instruction is presented, please visit these sample pages created by the author.
Samples are from Volumes 1, 2, and 3.

Complete-A-Sketch <br> Vision-Dexterity-Focus Complete-A-Sketch
Vision-Dexterity-Focus
-- The key benefit to this title from Melvin Peterman is that is was created specifically to meet vision challenges. Vision-Dexterity-FocusT is a great all-in-one package and was developed specifically for the challenged learner, with input from parents and vision therapy professionals. This book contains most of the art used in Volumes 1 - 3 of the Complete-A-Sketch series with some new and unique art. It contains orthographic, (flat two-dimensional line art), isometric (three-dimensional art) and perspective (three-dimensional art of the most realistic variety) projects. All of the art is larger, bolder, and has less fine detail so the student can see the lines and intersections clearer. This Complete-A-Sketch book contains 57 project pages. It starts at the beginning with two-dimensional shapes and the art becomes more interesting and more involved, then it transitions to simple isometric shapes and builds again, and finally, it transitions to perspectives; again, building on previous experience to complete the book. This version of Complete-A-Sketch is not a "simplified" version. It was developed to aid learners that have vision, dexterity, and focus difficulties in order to build confidence and to learn the basics of technical sketching. Complete-A-Sketch is reproducible for your family and is for any age. For a view of how this technical drawing instruction is presented, please visit these sample pages created by the author. Samples are from Volumes 1, 2, and 3.
