If you answered yes, then A is for Art is the perfect art course to enroll in.

This course contains 8 fun projects that teach a wide-range of drawing, painting, and mixed-media art skills. Each project is fun, easy, and uses simple supplies so anyone can participate!

While I designed this course for kids - perfect for an after-school or home school activity - anyone who wants to start drawing, sketching, painting, and creating art can have fun with this stress-free and relaxed art course.


You'll use a variety of art techniques in this course. Don't worry - it'll be fun and easy. You don't need any prior experience, and we use easy-to-find supplies that don't break the bank!

Here are some of the skills you'll learn:

  • Drawing & Sketching

  • Watercolor Painting

  • Mixed-Media Art

  • Oil Pastel

  • and more!


Each project contains an introduction, supply list, and printable to help you get started. Then you'll dive in and follow in real-time, as I create the entire project. You can follow along and do the project while you watch, easily pausing or rewinding if you need.

The 8 projects you'll do are:

  1. 'Entertaining Elephants'

  2. 'Precious Pears'

  3. 'Cup O'Joe'

  4. 'Brewster the Rooster'

  5. 'Spectacular Sea Turtle'

  6. 'Happy Hummingbirds'

  7. 'Bashful Burro'

  8. 'I Scream - Ice cream'
