The Drawing Made Simple curriculum challenges children in a fun and creative way. Each drawing level advances gradually allowing students to become successful and build confidence. While learning how to draw, young children will also learn and develop in other areas such as hand-eye coordination, shape recognition, and word association with objects. Children will find it easy to follow the step-by-step instructions which lead them through each drawing one line at a time.
Drawing Made Simple Level 1 also helps children to build skills that are needed to achieve Common Core Standards.

Children should remember it is important to practice drawing the lines and shapes first before attempting to complete any of the drawings in this book. Additional blank pages have been added so that children may have opportunities to practice their new drawing skills.

After completing all of the exercises and drawings, students are rewarded with a hand written Letter of Congratulations and an authentic Certificate of Completion signed by the author.

The combination of simple instruction, drawing, and encouragement promote learning and development in children while building confidence and self-esteem.

Meet the Author

Author, Illustrator, and Early Childhood Educator,
Lisa Davis DeMattei has a passion for teaching children how to draw.
Beginning her career in 1984 as an art director, Lisa was given an opportunity to volunteer at an elementary school and teach children how to draw. This was the moment that she realized she had found her calling. For over twenty-five years, Lisa has been sharing her drawing methods with children throughout the public school systems, libraries, YMCA Summer Camps, parks and recreational departments, Girl and Boy Scout Groups, churches, and home-school families.
Lisa encourages her students to not be afraid of making a mistake, but to enjoy the learning process as they draw each line. This experience has allowed Lisa to develop her unique approach for teaching while bringing joy and a smile to thousands of young artists.
Lisa continues to travel and teach drawing classes throughout the U.S. when she is not working on publishing more drawing books.
