Have you ever thought about creating a painting alongside your child or grandchild?
I am happy to announce the addition of my children’s painting courses into the Learn to Paint Academy course library.
My name is Em Winn and I am the instructor in three courses that have been designed especially for kids ages 6-12. In the courses Art for Kids: Learning to Paint Acrylic Paintings, Art for Kids: Drawing and Watercolor Painting Step-By-Step, and Art for Kids: Learn to Draw & Paint Animals in Acrylic, I use a kid-tested, step-by-step method of painting that will teach your little artist the skills and techniques to create masterpieces all their own. Each course has 6-8 projects to inspire and delight your artist into painting action! The projects are relevant and fun, and there is no experience necessary to be successful.
Because these courses are delivered via video, young students have the opportunity to take classes from the comfort of their own homes. They can pause the video if they need a little more time to complete a step, or they can speed-up a video if they would like to jump ahead. They can even watch the videos over and over (as kids love to do)! The method of delivering information through video really is the future of learning.
I have worked with children in the elementary classroom and in the art studio for over 20 years, and I have found that drawing, painting, and sculpting helps children in many ways. Building self-confidence, aiding in ‘thinking outside the box’, and developing crucial hand-eye coordination are but a few benefits of participating in hands-on creative pursuits.
During creative moments, I would encourage you to sit with your little artist, as it is an opportunity to bond and share your own love of painting and creating. As we all know, these moments of togetherness are fleeting and it is important to create special memories with your little one while you can. Some of the most important moments in childhood include quiet reflection, using hands to create, and making emotional connections with people that you love.
So break out those paints, pull up a couple chairs, and let’s get painting!
