Draw 50 Animals

The Step-by-Step Way to Draw Elephants, Tigers, Dogs, Fish, Birds, and Many More...
By Lee J. Ames

The novice with a musical instrument is frequently taught to play simple melodies as quickly as possible, well before he learns the most elemental scratchings at the surface of music theory. The resultant self-satisfaction, pride in accomplishment, can be a significant means of providing motivation. And all from mimicking an instructor's "DO-as-I-do..."
Mimicry is prerequisite for developing creativitity. We learn the use of our tools by mimicry. Then we can use those tools for creativity. To this end I would offer the budding artist the opportunity to memorize or mimic (rotelike, if you wish) the making of "pictures."
