Twenty-five years ago, I discovered a secret about teaching art to children.
After teaching thousands of shapes to hundreds of students I discovered that every shape in the world can be drawn with six elemental lines.
I call these 6 lines the Artabet.
These 6 lines are like vowels. They are the basic elements for the language of art. If children master these 6 lines, the possibilities are endless.
The Artabet is designed for teachers and educators. Each lesson helps your K-6 students quickly master the 6 universal lines of art.
Based on 25 years of art teaching experience: your students will learn the principles of drawing through 6 universal lines. I’m a professional landscape painter and a full-time art teacher.
Simple classroom exercises: Each character is easy to draw and your students will progress from simple shapes to imaginative story worlds.
Classroom-tested and designed for K-6 students: This method is based on my 25 years of teaching art. I’ve taught these characters to thousands of students and in dozens of school workshops.

“I really like the approach Ron takes with children and teachers…he makes the drawings so simple, for me who’s not an artist I can draw with the Artabet and teach it to the kids.” —Lorri Fehr, District Principal, Innovative Learning Services
“I just highly recommend it, the kids have been improving leaps and bounds, it gives you a structure to your art program its been great! It’s very simple to get started and very user-friendly, you just need a notebook and some pens and away you go!” —Alison Ferero, Redfish Elementary
“The Artabet is another tool in my tool box to add to the play based programs… allowing them to explore a real confidence booster and way for them to express their ideas.”— Cheryl Makeiv, Redfish Elementary School
This type of program will be very successful in an all-day K classroom as there will be more time for open-ended art projects, this program will allow for that. —Wendy Maslechko, Rosemount Elementary
