Timberdoodle's Review
Archi-Doodle City
Following the success of Archi-Doodle, Archi-Doodle City focuses on the city with sketches of real locations and innovative drawing prompts, such as “design a public toilet while considering light, ventilation, and appearance.” From bus shelters to street lighting, your teen will be asked to doodle a solution to a whole range of significant city life issues.

Archi-Doodle City presents 75 architectural challenges while giving some elementary factoids on the use of transport, lighting, and green spaces; the history of urban design and planning; and so much more. Archi-Doodle City includes numerous examples of works and ideas by major architects to draw inspiration from and features a broad spectrum of cities ranging from ancient to contemporary.

When still homeschooling, my 9th grade son wanted it. I thought it could be part of art as a fun interest. Each page has a picture sketched on it that is supposed to be completed. He looked through it and liked it but never did use it. I guess it did not grab his attention enough. To test this, I removed it from his room where it has lived for the past year; he hasn't noticed yet and its been about 2 weeks.

Crissy, Thank you for your feedback! An artist at heart would likely pick up Archi-Doodle City and go to town with it (pun intended!). But we have found that even for those of us who do not come by this talent inherently, we can still benefit from a concerted effort to broaden our horizons and attempt art design too. If you choose to have your child work through a program like Archi-Doodle, one of the easiest ways we have found to do this is to add it to their weekly school schedule. By scheduling this for your child, he will systematically work his way through a program which otherwise may lie forgotten in his bedroom, while his talent likewise lies undiscovered as well. ;-) --The Timberdoodle Team
