Have you been searching for fun painting projects for your child?

Are you looking for an experienced art teacher to guide your child through the painting process?

Are you seeking a healthy activity that has the potential to drive creativity and self-confidence in your child?   

The Jump Start Into Kids Art course may be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners in mind, this course is perfect for children ages 7+. With a total of 8 unique drawing and watercolor painting projects, your child will learn the skills to create masterpieces of their own long after the course is complete.

The teaching process used for the drawing portion of each project is a kid-tested, step-by-step method that will both inspire and delight your child into drawing action! This process involves organizing shapes and lines together until a recognizable outcome is achieved.

After students complete the drawing portion of their project, they will move onto painting the project. Students will learn basic watercolor techniques and apply these techniques to complete their project. The Jump Start Into Kids Art  course is designed to give young children the tools they need to begin their artistic journey into self-expression, reflection, and creative thinking.
