Complete-A-Sketch: Vision-Dexterity Focus was created as a result of input from parents, educators and therapists familiar with vision, dexterity and focus issues. The same lessons as the three Complete-a-Sketch volumes, with slight modifications and sketches with heavier lines. This book is appropriate for anyone wanting the lessons in Vol. 1, 2 and 3 in book format rather than pdf.
57 pages, for any age group.
Complete-A-Sketch, Vol. 1
ORTHOGRAPHIC—Vol. 1 focuses on flat two-dimensional line art. The first lessons are basic shapes (circles, triangles, squares), then the lessons progress into more challenging shapes (tear drop, heart), then build on the basic skills to create two-dimensional pictures (melting candle, train engine, violin).
Age 5 to 6, but is a good starting point for any age
Complete-A-Sketch, Vol. 2
ISOMETRIC—Vol. 2 introduces three-dimensional line art. The first lessons are basic three dimensional shapes (cubes, squares) then the lessons progress into more challenging shapes (crescent, building blocks), then build on the basic skills to create three-dimensional pictures (hot-air balloon, car).
Ages 7 to 9, or older
Complete-A-Sketch, Vol. 3
PERSPECTIVE—Vol. 3 introduces three-dimensional line art from various perspectives. The first lessons are basic three-dimensional shapes viewed from a one-point perspective (pipes, boxes) then the lessons progress into more challenging two-point objects (open box, house), then build on the basic skills to create three dimensional pictures (interior walls with fireplace, long-haul truck).
