If you are familiar with Kristin’s books, you probably know about her Draw Map series but Kristin also writes Art History curriculum.
ARTK12 sells art history bingo cards. They’re expensive ($39.95). We know this. We have been unable to find a printing solution that keeps the cards reasonably priced and allows us to make an exorbitant profit….just kidding….a reasonable profit so we’re planning to sell them in book form on Amazon.com.
It’s coming. The seventh book in what will eventually be a 9 book series: Draw Mexico, Central & South America. The plan is to have the book finished by the end of August, 2016.
As Kristin’s husband, marketing director, webmaster and glorified gopher, I’m happy to announce that Rainbow Resource will begin selling many of her books.
It’s finally here. Draw Asia Volume II is for sale. It seems no matter how much one edits, when the first, and second and third proofs arrived…there were typos.
This week I spent most of my time preparing a Pointillism project for one of Lucy’s classes. I wanted to use Seurat’s La Grande Jatte but having the kids draw the entire painting was out of the question. So I took a small corner of the painting and adjusted it to the abilities of 8-12 year-old boys.
Today I ordered the final proof for Draw Asia: Volume II and I should receive it late next week. If I don’t see any more glaring mistakes it will be up by the end of April! At the last minute…
This week I’ve decided to institute a monthly challenge that I’m calling The Crayon Challenge. I will reproduce a famous work of art using only white paper and a box of 64 Crayola crayons.
This week I’m back at work. Why back? My husband, son and I just moved from San Diego, California to Prescott Valley, Arizona so I’ve been distracted and busy (understatement:) lately.
The fifth book in my drawing map series, Draw Asia: Volume I is now for sale on Amazon.com for $19.95. As in my previous books I use simple step-by-step instructions to help your students draw Asia, eventually by memory with enough practice.
I know what you want to ask. “So what is it REALLY LIKE to LIVE with Kristin, the founder of ARTK12?” Well, probably a lot like you’d expect. It’s like fireworks are going off everyday. Confetti inexplicably falls from the sky. At times the rain stops just to let us cross the street. It’s like Disneyland on steroids, a perpetual vacation at an upscale resort…
Things are changing at ARTK12. Along with books and bingo cards ARTK12 will now begin selling PDF downloads. The first PDF we’re selling is a matching game based on our new online game: Monet’s Haystacks.
