Children are born passionate artists, but how do we help them keep their passion alive and grow as creative individuals throughout their adolescent years?
As a mom of two little girls who still love to color and draw, I worry if they will get enough “art” in their education to keep them inspired. Art classes at school are limited or nonexistent and I personally have no art abilities or skills to pass on to them.
While I can teach them to read, write, add and subtract, I cannot teach them to draw. I can barely draw a stick person.
I remember as a child gradually realizing I wasn’t very good at drawing and becoming scared to try. When we had the choice of whether or not to take art in school at age 13, I didn’t take the class because I believed I wasn’t artistic and I was scared to get a bad grade.
I wonder if I had been given some art lessons when I was in that important age range of 6 to 12, if I might have learned enough to gain some confidence to keep trying to draw and enjoy art. Instead, I got frustrated that I didn’t know how to draw and gave up. I labeled myself as unartistic and never again tried to create art.
I am so thrilled to have discovered Thrive Online Art Classes for Kids.
Through the video art classes, kids learn the basics of how to draw and they have the opportunity to come up with their own ideas. These fun lessons teach kids to innovate and create.
