Volume 1, Level 1 of the series begins with drawing the Horse Head  and is appropriate for All ages!

DVD vol 1  




The drawing kit is very popular as a gift set and at horse shows or Equine expos where the kids especially, run back to their RV's or horse trailers, watch the DVD, practice on the supplied drawing pad and return to Theresa with their creations! Their enthusiasm is SO contageous! And it takes them away from the "point and click" mentality which is stifling the creativity level of today's young adults. It is also amazing how many Grandparents buy the kit themselves and keep the drawing tools and eventually give the DVD to their grandchildren.

Theresa's Beginning to Draw Horse's Kit includes the DVD, How to Draw Horses, Vol 1, Level 1, The Horse Head, a large 9 x 12 sketch pad of acid free paper, a Ebony sketching pencil and an eraser

DVD vol 1 & Drawing Kit
