You probably have explored Donna Young's resource site in the past, but if has been a while, you might want to take another look at the comprehensive art section (http://donnayoung.org/art/index.htm) she has compiled there.

I'm copying and pasting the index of the section so you can see how many great resources are available there...

i actually realized i'd been using her comic strip pages. i started looking around her site more last week when i printed them . . . but its a bit much for me. i tend to figure out what i need, and then go looking for it. seeing pages after pages of stuff i dont want right now tends to tire me out too much

This is great. Art is something I have no skill at, so I'm always looking for good resources to help me out.

That's great, Topsy! Thanks! My eldest did the art program offered in Time4Learning, and he loved it. He is looking for additional art instruction, so I am going to spend some time looking through that section today. :D
