Synopsis

Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures by Mark Bergin

It's Fun To Draw Dinosaurs takes young budding artists back to the age of the Tyrannosaurus rex and the pteranodon! The prehistoric world was host to a huge array of different creatures and scenic environments, such as the liopleurodon swimming through the clear sea and the tall diplodocus munching his way through the forest. Here you can draw a wide selection of these creatures and places, using a variety of different artistic tools and techniques, including squiggling, crosshatching, sponging and smudging. Draw a herd of velociraptors charging past a volcano, a fierce Tyrannosaurus Rex chasing its prey or a pteranodon swooping through the cloudy skies. To make the book even more fun, a mischievous Diplodocus can be seen poking his big neck into each and every illustration! It's Fun to Draw is a great way to start learning about the concepts involved in drawing, from colouring techniques and shapes to shading and erasing. Colouring techniques are introduced, using a variety of materials such as wax crayons, coloured pencils and ink pens. With 'Splat-a-facts', which give information about what's being drawn, these books act as a creative spark, setting off your child's imagination so that they can confidently sketch and scribble a variety of animals and objects in their own scenes. Pronounciation guides accompany the simple step-by-step instructions and 'Splat-a-facts' so the whole experience is both educational and enjoyable. The instructions are written in a repetitive way and can be used for practising guided reading. Controlling a pen and making marks on paper help to lay the foundations for practicing writing. Drawing and scribbling at a pre-school age builds skills that make creativity fun!
