How to Teach Drawing
Drawing, coloring and painting can be both fun and educational.
Many people think of art and drawing as interchangeable and expect young children to simply sit down with paper, crayons and markers and turn out splashes of color that make you think “what is that supposed to be?” That kind of activity is fun for children, but they are also capable of self-discipline to learn drawing fundamentals: drawing straight and curved lines, circles and ovals, shading and perspective. Those are powerful skills that not only help in painting, they are powerful tools to use for communication all of your child’s life.
Barry Stebbing demonstrates some basic drawing skills you can teach your child during the K-3rd grade years. We have been amazed to watch young homeschool children concentrate for long periods of time and turn out excellent works of art by following Barry’s direction.
Barry is a professional artist, teacher, and author of art curriculum. For preschoolers we suggest you take a look at his Baby Lambs and Annie's Etiquette and Good Manners art books:
