Win 'Art House, Vol. 1: Basic Shapes and Animals'!

The Louvre, The Met, the Guggenheim, the … refrigerator door? The family “gallery” will display the creative genius of budding young artists like never before with the launch of Art House, a charming new DVD series teaching children the fundamentals of drawing.

Endorsed by KIDS FIRST!, the initial title in the series Volume 1: Basic Shapes and Animals will be available nationwide November 17, 2009 for a suggested retail price of $17.99.

Developing artistic skills at an early age has proven to promote problem solving, communication, curiosity and perspective. Created by Amy Wilkes, a USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate and Tiffany Jennings, an elementary school teacher, Art House DVD series teaches children ages 3 and up how to draw using basic shapes – squares, circles, triangles, etc. – as a base to illustrate almost anything.

“When schools feel the financial crunch, art programs are the first to go,” says Wilkes. “The Art House series nurtures young minds and offers parents a chance to create art with their child even if neither have any experience in drawing. Seeing our children’s faces light up with pride as they complete a drawing makes the whole project worthwhile.” Adds Jennings, “We’ve seen the confidence that art skills can bring to children. By simply learning how to draw, they are unlocking a wealth of developmental abilities.”

So, if you would like to win one of these new DVDs just answer this easy question: Art House Volume 1: Basic Shapes and Animals features bright, bold animation by Brad Abelson (The Simpsons) and original music by award-winning composer Peter Scaturro.
