Drawing projects that come with step by step instructions make it easier for students of all ages.
More Easy Drawing Ideas for Kids
As a former classroom art teacher, I saw first hand how students were often unsure as to how and where to start their drawing projects. That confusion often led to frustration, or maybe even deciding not to draw at all. It seemed to me that there must be a better way to share easy drawing ideas for kids, but it took some time to figure out how to do that.
Direct drawing instructions on the front board worked for a little while, but it had its limitations. There also 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.
The solution? Create my own handouts that students could easily follow on their own.
The biggest benefit about getting the process down on paper was that every one could work finally work independently. Tutorials showing each step suddenly turned a noisy process into a very quiet and happy classroom! The more tutorials I made, the more I continually found them to be helpful. Students could build their confidence, learn the value in following directions, and hopefully start a lifetime love of drawing.
New drawing ideas are added often, so stop by to see the latest one. It just might be the perfect lesson for your classroom today!
