Complete-A-Sketch series are reproducible (for each family) books that promote the concept of teaching by doing. 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. Since Complete-A-Sketch is fully reproducible for your family, everyone can practice as much as they want to. 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 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. The ages listed are only rough guidelines
Vision-Dexterity-Focus is a great all-in-one package. Vision-Dexterity-Focus was developed specifically for the challenged learner, with input from parents and vision therapy professionals. This book contains most of the art used in volumes one through three of the Complete-A-Sketch series with some new and unique art. It contains orthographic, isometric, and perspective projects. All of the art is larger, bolder, and has less fine detail so the student can see the lines and intersections clearer. This Complete-A-Sketch book contains 57 project pages. It starts at the beginning with two-dimensional shapes and the art becomes more interesting and more involved, then it transitions to simple isometric shapes and builds again, and finally, it transitions to perspectives; again, building on previous experience to complete the book. This version of Complete-A-Sketch is not a "simplified" version. It was developed to aid learners that have vision, dexterity, and focus difficulties in order to build confidence and to learn the basics of technical sketching. Complete-A-Sketch is reproducible for your family; your child can start working with this book at age 5 or 6. Though not required, this book is a great place for any age group to start.
