This is the most popular drawing series available today. It allows students to retain information by using both sides

of their brains at once. While bringing life to a famous painting using only a pencil, or color pencils, students read

and reflect on the artist of the work as well as the piece of art itself. This is an excellent way to teach art history

on every grade level.
