My years as a former classroom art teacher allowed me to see first hand how students go through the process of drawing. In time, it was clear how many were often unsure about where to start, and how to keep going when they felt stuck.
Direct draw instructions on the front board did work for a little while. It had its limitations though, with larger classes.
Then there was the issue of pacing. Some students always wanted to go faster, and some a bit slower. It kept the whole process feeling a bit chaotic, both for myself and for them too.
No screen needed, no internet connection. Just a printed piece of paper so they could work completely on their own. It worked so well that I started making more and have never stopped.
Many websites that share drawing tutorials for kids are either overly simplistic or overly complex. My tutorials are made for students that want to learn how to make things look a bit more realistic, without getting overwhelmed by details. Step by step tutorials are a great way to help students build their confidence, and hopefully start on a lifetime love of drawing.
New drawing projects are added often, so stop by to see the latest one. It just might be the perfect lesson for your classroom today!
