Today on AME, I’m continuing with my new series: The Draw, Paint, Sparkle Book Chat, where I read sections of my new book and give you extra insight to how my teaching philosophy has worked throughout the years and how it can help you create art with your kids.
I taught in an elementary art room for 13 years before going full time with Deep Space Sparkle. And over the past few years of writing this book and helping parents in my membership program, the Sparklers Club, I realized that teaching or facilitating art at home is different than teaching large numbers of students.
In today’s episode, I’m sharing 5 tips that will reveal a few secrets that will set both YOU and your child up for art at home success. This will help your art-making sessions to be fluid, creative and stress-free.
Real quick before moving to number 3, if you’re a parent who loves to do art with your children or recognizes that your child needs more art in their lives, you’ll love my new book Draw, Paint, Sparkle.
You’ll discover easy ways to get started with art-making with basic supplies and flexible instructions. Create art based on celebrated painters like Van Gogh, Monet and Pollock and explore engaging subjects inspired by nature and animals.
Be sure to head over to the book’s website: Draw, Paint, Sparkle to download a free art project and then, if you like it, order the book.
After you buy the book, come back to the website to access your bonuses: 27 Drawing Guides that you can download, print and use with your kids.
Like the book? I’d love for you to write a review on Amazon, which helps the distribution of the book so more parents can create art with kids.
You can buy the DPS book from Amazon, Barns and Noble and wherever good books are sold.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
– The importance of trying your projects first before your students
– How to develop a relaxed approach with art supplies to give children the freedom to experience art
– Why children will get frustrated and what we can do to help
– What playing music can offer for everyone’s experience at home
