Let's take a field trip with professional illustrator, Mark Marderosian to Woods Hole Science Aquarium NOAA in Woods Hole, MA.the oldest aquarium in the United States of America. While visiting we can learn about many different kinds of fish and sea life.


On the "Drawing with Mark" DVD, you will find two episodes that are approximately thirty minutes long and takes place in The Magical Attic.

In "Something Fishy!", we begin by learning how to draw a sea star and a school of fish. The second episode features, "A Day at the Aquarium!" where we meet harbor seals, LuSeal and Bumper, and Stumpy the turtle. We learn to draw them and to add special touches to the backgrounds.

Mark begins by teaching us the basics of drawing using the simple shapes of a circle, square and triangle. We learn to use shading, foundation lines and details to create our own special masterpieces. As a bonus, there are cute cartoons featuring Angels from the Attic friends, fun facts, trivia, a recommended book list and how to make an origami fish. Let's not forget the draw along booklet which includes: Twinkle Mouse, Mark's Drawing Guide and Coloring Sheet.
