Why teach your kid to draw? There are so many reasons. Not only is it a relaxing and enjoyable experience for a child, but it improves their skills. Many children assume that you can either draw or you can’t, but of course this isn’t true. All great artists start somewhere – by observing instructions and practicing. The idea of this book is to provide an easily accessible starting point.
Often, seeing an elaborate drawing is intimidating for kids. It is important to break down the process into smaller steps, so that they can learn that the finished product is made up of different elements. Through doing this, they understand that creating impressive art is a journey in itself. Like all skills, it doesn’t happen immediately.
However, with the right amount of practice and encouragement, your child will improve. It takes weeks, months or even years but the path will be exciting and rewarding for both you and your child. Who knows where it may lead? Maybe there is a budding painter, photographer or sculptor waiting to shine. The only way to find out is to allow them to express themselves and enjoy the process.
Use this book to encourage them, amuse them and most importantly let them explore the possibilities that learning to draw has to offer!
