Yesterday, I had to teach a small class of 6- to 8-year old kids the basics of art. While, at the end, I decided to hold off on the lecture about two-point perspective, I did teach them a couple of lesson a la the Oh, Brother! webcomic. Lessons like how to start with a stick figure and how to end up with the character of Lily. And how to draw a baby elephant, a raccoon, and an ape using the handy step-by-step guides that populate Bob Weber Jr.’s Comics For Kids section of the newspaper. It went over a lot better than the landscapes I had then drawing earlier in my lesson. So big thanks to both Bob Weber Jr. and Jay Stephens for always helping kids to discover the magic and fun of drawing!
