Outstanding instructional support
Comments about Crystal Productions Art Is ... Video Series:
I have used this resource many times over the years to supplement art instruction in a general education classroom. I have chosen to stay with single point and double point perspectives, 4th graders can follow the directions as I would pause the video, a DVD would be easier, but the clarity and simplicity are outstanding. Students developed a keener sense of the world around them and used the instructed techniques to improve drawings for reports, AVID one pagers, etc.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
