Art is Fun Sample Lessons for Creative Kids

Art is Fun is a directed drawing course where students are encouraged to explore their own creativity to the max.

This is a directed drawing course where each week a new drawing will be presented. For my drawing courses I teach with a ‘Show, Tell, Demonstrate” approach. First showing the students what I’d like them to do on a slide, I then tell them what to draw and where, and finally I demonstrate it on my own drawing. This allows students to “keep up” and not feel behind as they have the information coming to them 3 ways. It also allows for multiple learning styles to be successful.

 

I choose drawings that all levels of artists can confidently complete and encourage creative liberties. For example, last week we drew a birdhouse and a bird, students were encouraged to think about where their birdhouse was, if it had a theme, and how they would represent that. I had themes/settings from outer space to the farm, mountain landscapes to desert cactuses. Inspiring creativity not only creates confidence that their ideas are worthy, but it also helps them see value in others’ ideas. Often taking those inspirations into the next drawing we create.
