In these beginning drawing classes your child will learn the basics of shapes, shading, and perspective!

Studies show that when kids draw, it release serotonin, endorphins, dopamine, and norepinephrine. Drawing also has a calming effect on kids, so teaching a child to draw gives him an outlet to purge negative emotions. The more skillful a child becomes with sketching, the more it boosts his confidence.

Unfortunately, many schools have dropped art classes altogether, which is a real shame. Drawing helps children build critical skills that helps them in unexpected ways. An article in had this to say about teaching children to draw:

“…research shows teaching strategies that include the visual and performing arts improve memory for content in subjects like math and science. If we think of art as a superpower for kids, we need to do what we can to give them those wings.”

Our beginning drawing classes are a great place to help your child start building these artistic skills. Then they can move into learning to paint what they draw and we can help them with that too with our kids art classes.
