Kindergarten Clowns

My favorite drawing instruction book is Drawing with Children by Mona Brookes. In her book, the author stresses the importance of teaching students the five elements of contour shape. It isn't enough to show kids how to draw, you have to give them the vocabulary that describes them. A good way to introduce many of these shapes is through making a drawing of a clown.
