DRAWING WITH MARK: A DAY WITH THE DINOSAUR/REACH FOR THE STARS cover image Click to play video trailer
"Drawing with Mark" is a great show to learn tips about how to draw and/or improve your drawing. Mark is really helpful and easy to understand. He plays with, and is like a coach for the Angels From The Attic - Eclipse Doggy, Crystal Cat, Looner Bunny, Sunray Bear, Twinkle Mouse and Misty Pig.

In "A Day With The Dinosaurs" I learned how to draw a Pterodactyl and a T-Rex. Mark visits the Museum of Boston and speaks to an expert to learn more about them and to get an idea of how the dinosaurs lived, what they ate and how long they lived. I learned that sometimes they call dinosaurs very large lizards.

In the other episode, "Reach For The Stars" I learned how to draw an astronaut and the planet Saturn, the planet with the rings around it. At the Museum of Boston, he speaks to another expert about the stars, the galaxy, the astronauts and of course, about Saturn. I also learned how far we are from the stars. I thought that the stars were probably about 270 miles from us, but they are actually millions of miles from us, that's really far! You can see the stars look kind of close, but they are so far away!!

Mark taught me that a drawing takes time and you don't have to rush. Always draw the stick figure, the foundation, before you start adding details and other special little things you can always add. You need to draw the outline and just sketch it, don't hold your pencil so hard, sketch lightly and softly.

I recommend this show to anyone who loves to draw and wants to improve their drawing. You can have fun with the tips he gives you which may lead you to become and artist or to illustrate books. I give the show 5 stars out of 5 and recommend it to all ages because it's never too late to learn to draw. "Drawing with Mark" is a really fun, artistic and colorful show that will be open a new world to future artists around the world. Get your copy of Drawing With Mark available now on DVD.
