Course Description

Recent review about this course:

Drawing made simple. Its a good starting point on ways to draw for the kids, this gives a good opportunity for your child to follow or a parent/guardian to follow and then show the kids. My Daughter loves you Em, I showed her your tutorial and she just cant stop (this is not a Joke). I cant give you more stars but I can say thanks for making a very simple to follow program.

Would you like an experienced teacher guiding your child through the drawing process? The Drawing for Kids course may be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners in mind, this drawing course is perfect for ages 5-10 years old. The teaching process used is a kid-tested, step-by-step method that will both inspire and delight your child into drawing action! The process involves organizing shapes and lines together until a recognizable outcome (in this course, usually a cute cartoon animal) is achieved. Young artists may then apply the knowledge they gain through each lesson to create unique masterpieces of their own. The Drawing for Kids course is designed to give young children the tools they need to begin their artistic journey into self-expression, reflection, and creative thinking.

I would love to hear from you.

Please let me know if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. I will get back to you ASAP.
