How to Draw Stick Figure Selfies

Let's start with a simple question: What is a stick figure? There's more to it than you think. Those fine lines and basic shapes are actually the "skeletons" of more complicated drawings. In fact, animators and cartoonists sketch stick figures first to get the look and feel of a character before adding more color, layers, and definition to make a sleek, 3-D image.

The Big Book of Art: Draw! Paint! Create!

big book of art fun

Many children are drawn to art right from the start. I can remember both of my daughters being in awe the first time their chubby hands gripped a crayon and made scribbles on a blank sheet of paper. There was wonderment in their eyes when the first bright drops of paint from their paintbrushes dripped onto an empty canvas. Making art can be a joyful, soothing, and adventurous experience for children of all ages.
