Art Journaling for Kids Online Workshop (Great Summer Activity!) July 19 2016, 0 Comments

Looking for a way to keep the kids entertained while stretching their creativity muscles this summer? The Baxter family has created a great ART JOURNALING WORKSHOP FOR KIDS that fills the bill. Videos, tutorials, lots of examples, printables, and easily obtained supplies (many, I'm sure, you already have around the house).

Art Journaling for Kids Online Workshop (Great Summer Activity!)

There are currently 18 fun lessons posted in the online classroom, with new project videos being released each Tuesday. You get lifetime access to all content for your child to work at his/her own pace and revisit any lesson, any time!

Here's a look at just a few of the creative projects presented by artists Tangie Baxter, her husband Dave, and their daughter Sammy:

Color Wheels and Color Feelings

Students will learn all about mixing colors using basic watercolors, and journaling prompts will encourage them to think about how different colors can make us feel. Tangie's color circles turned out like this, but she reminds us that everyone's will look different and to BE YOU and PLAY!  

Sammy shows us how to see animals in watercolor shapes and how to make crayon resist fish:

Crayon Resist Fish

Mr. Dave uses basic shapes to build a robot. You should see the the adorable robots our students have created and shared in the classroom!

Build Your Own Robot

We have so many more fun ideas for simple and creative drawing and painting techniques, collage, and mixed media projects, plus lots of journaling prompts and printable pages.

Find all the details about this workshop [here]. Kids of all ages are welcome, and whether you're 4 or 94 you will love this class!
