Drawing is the basis of all human visual communication. Before writing there was drawing. Before letters there were pictures. Drawing is the fundamental skill we all need to learn to communicate in the world today. When we read, we look at and interpret drawn letters. When we write, we draw letters for others to see. When we do arithmetic we calculate then draw numbers, graphs, and shapes. MaryArt™, through Guided Drawing™, teaches skills that are fundamental to the three R’s. MaryArt teaches reading when the student learns to observe, interpret, and dissect an image, scene or picture. MaryArt teaches arithmetic when the student learns to calculate position and proportion, mix colors and create and shade three dimensional perspective. MaryArt teaches writing when the student learns to clearly draw their ideas on paper in a logical sequence communicating images, ideas and feeling to the audience.
