For kids in Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
This is a fun art class designed for kids in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. But anyone can take it! The lessons are free. I wanted to provide something fun and creative for kids to do since 2020 has been a really hard year.
I started teaching art again in 2018 after realizing that our area did not have a lot of positive programs for kids. As a father looking for ideas for his own kids, I decided to see if anyone in the community wanted to learn art. I had a few hundred dollars donated for the space and art supplies, and we had over 100 different kids and their parents participate. It was a huge success.
When I decided to offer them again in 2020, some people requested an online version. I had never thought about that, but I knew it would be a good way to help even more people. So this is my very first online art class. I hope your child enjoys it!

The amount of patience you demonstrate is wonderful. My kids have learned a lot from what you've shown them. Thank you!
