Complete-A-Sketch 123 CD Sample Pages
Learn How To Sketch 1-, 2-, and 3-D
Finally, a collection of volumes 1, 2, and 3 all on one CD-ROM! Complete-A-Sketch 123 will allow parents to print as many copies of each assignment as needed. With one inexpensive CD-ROM every child can learn how to sketch orthographic, isometric, and perspective drawings. Plus there are additional special projects included on the CD-ROM that will help prepare your child for the advanced CD-ROM.
Ideal for Use with Multiple Children
Complete-A-Sketch 123 is ideal for family use with multiple children or with children who need multiple opportunities to master this skill. The Complete-A-Sketch books have always been a family favorite; now Complete- A-Sketch 123 is available for the next generation. For best results some projects will require the use of some simple drafting-related tools: straight edge, French curve, or flexible curve.
Another outstanding component of
Timberdoodle's Third-Grade Core Curriculum!
More About Complete-A-Sketch 123:
Complete-A-Sketch 123 has been created specifically for families to use in their home. It includes all of the works from Complete-A-Sketch Volumes 1, 2, and 3, with seven exclusive bonus projects. Complete-A-Sketch 123 has a single-user license. In short this means that this CD is for individual/home use. The bonus materials introduce some drafting concepts and include modeling projects.
The Complete-A-Sketch concept is simple and straightforward. Each page shows a small, clear, completed picture in the upper-left-hand corner of the page. The balance of the page shows the same image with detail and lines missing, showing hints and critical intersections and line ends to define the image to be drawn. Think of it as a complex dot-to-dot. After successfully completing a sketch, draw it again on a blank sheet of paper. Complete-A-Sketch aids the student in a number of ways: teaches by example, teaches attention to detail, provides a basis for all types of precision drawings, promotes self-directed learning, explores free-hand and mechanical sketching, hones fine-motor skills. This is a life skill that is fun to learn. Like all art, it is not age-specific. Rather, it is desire, will, and perseverance which are required. The ages listed are only rough guidelines.
Complete-A-Sketch Volume 1 Orthographic
Includes: Twenty-five lessons that introduce the basics of two-dimensional technical sketching (orthographic)
This is a great place to start! The primary focus of this volume is orthographic or flat, two-dimensional line art. Two-dimensional line art is used every day by all types of people. It is a great skill to have. The Volume 1 lessons start with the most basic shapes: squares, circles, etc. In addition, the shapes are named so the shape names can be learned. After this simple beginning, the difficulty builds and it becomes more interesting. This allows for quick successes and fun. Quickly, the student gains confidence and builds on new skills to move on to increasingly more complex sketches. Your child can start working with this book at age five or six. Though not required, this level is a great place for any age group to start.
Complete-A-Sketch Volume 2 Isometric
Includes: Thirty-two lessons that introduce the basics of three-dimensional technical sketching (isometric)
Volume 2 is a natural progression from Volume 1. Volume 1 does not need to be completed to learn and enjoy this level. The primary focus of this volume is isometric or three-dimensional art. Isometric line art is used by people in engineering and architectural fields. Like Volume 1, the lessons start with the most basic shapes: cubes, cylinders, etc. After this simple beginning, the difficulty builds and it becomes more interesting. This allows for quick successes and fun. Quickly, the student gains confidence and builds on new skills to move on to increasingly more complex sketches. Your child can start working with this book at age seven or eight. This volume is more challenging and some students may wish to start here.
Complete-A-Sketch Volume 3 Perspective
Includes: twenty-one lessons that introduce the basics of perspective technical sketching (perspective)
Volume 1 & 2 do not need to be completed to learn and enjoy this book. The primary focus of this volume is perspective or three-dimensional art of the most realistic variety. Perspective line art is used primarily by people in architectural and art fields. Like Volumes 1 & 2, the lessons start with the most basic shapes: cubes, cylinders, one point perspective, two point perspective, etc. After this simple beginning, the difficulty builds and becomes more interesting. This allows for quick successes and fun. Quickly, the student gains confidence and builds on new skills to move on to increasingly more complex sketches. Complete-A-Sketch is reproducible for your family; your child can start working with this book at age nine or ten. This volume is the most challenging of the series and some students may wish just to do this volume to help them with this specific skill.
