Art lessons for kids are super popular at our homeschool co-op. Many moms feel unequipped to teach art at home, so they hope their local co-ops will be able to offer something for their children. Drawing is a great option for a homeschool art class because drawing is foundational for other art forms.
My amazing friend, Brandy, taught Dare to Draw at our homeschool cooperative; she used Evan-Moor's How to Teach Art to Children book to introduce and explore foundational concepts such as line, shape, color, and texture.
She also used the following project ideas which worked well with her group, even though they were various ages and abilities.
- Draw a Hand Tree
- Draw a Coiled Snake
- Name Monsters
- Complimentary Color Portrait
- Scribble Pictures
- Inside Outside Drawings
- Shapes Into Forms
