Skinny Snowman & Learn How to Draw a Snowman.

Help me quick!
Is my snowman sick?
His body is wasting away!

He used to be fat
With a belly to pat,
But now he gets slimmer each day.

He doesn't work out,
He just stands about.
So why is he still losing weight?

With temperatures higher
He seems to perspire.
Let it snow before it's too late!

Would You Like to Learn to Draw?

I want to introduce you to a new page for kids who like to draw. Kevin Scott Collier has taught illustration classes, giving kids art tips for almost 30 years. Now he is taking much of that to the internet via YOUNG ARTIST WORKSHOP.

It's casual, and new video entries will appear every week.
