The Sailor Moon Drawing Book for Kids: Learn How to Draw Sailor Moon and Her Friends with the Easy and Fun Step-by-Step Guide

by Raphael Marino

Children do not become artists overnight. There are a number of different things which help them improve their drawing skills. Without practice, they will not improve. Without dedication, their technique will not develop. And without a simple, step-by-step guide like this one, which is designed to make drawing fun, they will not be passionate.

One important thing to remember is that no child will create perfect sketches. When we are younger, it is in our nature to be messy and to experiment as we learn. This means that as a parent or guardian, teaching your children to draw requires a lot of patience.

It is likely that your children will want to produce quality drawings straight away and may become frustrated when they cannot do this as well as you can. This is why having a guide such as this one is so important. It teaches kids that learning to draw does not happen at once – much like drawing itself, it is a gradual build up to a final result.

Therefore, the instructions in this book will not only teach children important skills and techniques – it will allow them to have fun whilst they learn, so much so that they will improve without really noticing that they are practicing!

RAFAEL CADENAS Poesía y Destino: Prólogo de Freddy Castillo Castellanos (Spanish Edition)

by Varios autores”

El poeta que hace muchos años dijo pertenecer a “un pueblo de grandes comedores de serpientes” (Los cuadernos del destierro, 1960) no ha dejado nunca de buscar la palabra “que sea como el temblor que la sostiene” (Intemperie, (1977). A lo largo de los años su constancia en esa búsqueda le ha permitido componer una obra honda y sólida, paralela a su labor docente y a la escritura luminosa de ensayos, fragmentos y aforismos que bien pueden ser leídos no sólo como pensamiento, sino también como otra forma de su poesía.

Rafael Cadenas (Barquisimeto, Venezuela, 1930) es hoy uno de los poetas vivos más importantes de la lengua española. Vive en Caracas, donde es la conciencia intelectual de su afligida Venezuela. Como dijo el escritor Antonio López Ortega, Rafael es también “el país Cadenas”. Un país en el que podemos sobrevivir y resistir.

Estas páginas, con una breve selección de textos del poeta, son un acercamiento a su obra desde la mirada de siete lectores: María Fernanda Palacios, Joaquín Marta Sosa, José Pulido, Reinaldo Rodríguez Anzola, Freddy Castillo Castellanos, Enrique Viloria Vera y José María Cadenas.



How to Draw House Step-by-Step: Easy Drawing Lessons for Kids to Learn to Draw Houses

by Roy Lichter

So, why learn to draw? Drawing is arguably as important and essential a skill as learning literacy and mathematics. When a child learns to draw, they are encouraged to do two things. The first is to look at the world around them – they begin to understand the connections between color and shape, form and perspective, dimensions and relations.

The second is to look within themselves. Once a child learns how to draw, they are able to express themselves in a unique and fascinating way. Every individual has a very different imagination and a particular creative process, even from a young age – however they need a way to vent this imagination and creativity. Learning to draw is the perfect way to do this.

Moreover, the better your child becomes at a skill like drawing, the more easily they will be able to express themselves. That is why this book is the perfect guide to the techniques needed in the earliest stages of drawing. Not only will it teach them the basics but more importantly they will have fun whilst they are learning.

In no time at all you are sure to see your child’s ability go from strength to strength, which will be an incredibly rewarding process for them but also for you!
