Your Kids Can Do This!

Lots of students say, "I really like to draw but I can't draw people". Well, get ready to dispel that mindset once and for all. This workshop will help you get kids to slow down and buy in to the fact that they CAN indeed draw people, and it is much easier than they think. You'll learn step-by-step, feature-by-feature, a scaffolded approach to teaching portraiture . It's as simple as having the kids work through a series of exercises perfecting their ability to draw features, then move on to draw the final portrait with ease! All student work on this page (including the main banner image at the top) is Beginner Drawing (grades 9-12) with NO prior portrait experience.
