Simply Draw with Bob Parsons
Our price: $47.50
Anyone can learn to draw. The question is: How hard do you want to make it on yourself? We review drawing programs on a regular basis and absolutely none of them compares to Simply Draw.
Book Plus Video Instruction
Designed to teach drawing for children as young as eight through adult education classes, the lessons in Simply Draw with Bob Parsons are simple and come with clear, step-by-step explanations. Because each exercise introduces a new idea or adds to drawing concepts already introduced, Simply Draw is so basic that even those of us who despair of ever learning to draw can do so. Plus, there are almost three hours of additional video instruction included, making this the easiest drawing program available.
Plenty of Open Space, High-Quality Paper
Because everyone learns better with laughter, Bob Parsons, father of six, includes humorous drawings and witty asides throughout Simply Draw. Plenty of open space and high-quality paper encourage drawing directly in the book, but with the provided PDF file on the DVD you can print copies of the practice pages for the entire family and keep your book in pristine condition.
Principles Gleaned from Drawing Textbook
Simply Draw with Bob Parsons gleans a fair amount from the late Bruce McIntyre's Drawing Textbook, which was wildly popular with homeschoolers for dozens of years. Bob Parsons received permission from surviving family members of Bruce to use his teachings, so if you missed out on securing a copy of Drawing Textbook while it was still available, you will be delighted to know those excellent principles are in Simply Draw.
See a Difference in Virtually No Time
Include Simply Draw in your homeschool day and you will see a difference in your children's drawing skills in virtually no time. Simply Draw with Bob Parsons includes nearly 200 pages, close to three hours of DVD instruction, and a PDF document containing all the practice pages. The DVD is designed to play on a computer only.

This is the drawing curriculum we have been looking for! The videos and the book break it down step by step. It is very well planned out down to the strip of paper with the logo to slide into your binder so you can easily see where it is on the shelf. I am looking forward to using this.
My 11 year old son never showed much interest in drawing or anything pencil related for that matter. At first sight the thickness of the book overwhelmed him, but I believe it was the simplicity and humor that eventually got him to change his mind. In just one month of school he has gone from complaining to willingness to eagerness when it comes to drawing. I am truly amazed at how well he actually can draw! Bob Parsons got a way to motivate as well as to draw.
My son has improved his drawing immensely!
My daughter is loving this drawing curriculum. She has voluntarily added it to her daily to-do list.
