How to Teach Your Child to Draw in 10 Easy Steps

Children seem to develop many art skills naturally. As they explore the world around them, most children delight to make marks on paper – and on walls, clothing, and themselves. 

Soon, random scribbles are grouped into the forms of faces, stick figures, and other objects. Children often record stories in drawings long before they could do so in words.

However, like so many skills, drawing is a heritage that can be passed from one generation to the next. 

There are many drawing techniques that your child will enjoy that he or she may not discover on their own. Consider the following ten suggestions you can employ to endow the lifelong gift of drawing to your child, today.

    I think art is a great way to encourage and develop creativity for children. It's a shame that it was one of the first classes to be cut in schools.
