### Lesson 21: Review of Two-Handed Drawings (Rhythmic Drawing)

The aim in these rhythmic or two-handed exercises is to give skill, speed, and grace to the two hands working together.

- Spend 3-5 minutes a day on these exercises at a whiteboard.
- If you have no large whiteboard, tape two pieces of paper to a desk or table, one piece for each hand.
- Dots denote the starting places for a movement and the "X" the end position for a movement.

Instructors show children the top image and note:

- The geometrical form featured in at the top is called a circle.
- The shape on the second line is an ellipse.
- The additional shapes are the blade, loop, triangle, and kite.
