Hire a Professional:
- How long are the classes? How often do you meet? What is the cost per class? Is there a sliding scale if more than one sibling attends?
- Have you taught kids online before? (Tell me about your experience.)
- Where did you learn to draw? (Resume.)
- What is the format of your classes? (Do they do a lot of talking/teaching or active drawing? Do they cover fundamentals? Or do they focus on fun stuff? (My kids preferred fun-stuff!) )
The interesting thing is, with skype/zoom, you’d be surprised at what phenomenal illustrators you might be able to nab for classes. Just remember, not all amazing artists are amazing teachers. So ask questions!
Basic Art Tutorials for Kids:
- www.Kidlit.tv has a whole section of illustration tutorials called Ready, Set, Draw. Every tutorial is with a professional children’s literature illustrator. It’s super fun to learn to draw characters from current books straight from the illustrator who designed them. All free!
- Art for Kids Hub has a website and a YouTube channel. Art for Kids Hub has a lot of free tutorials, and there is also a paid level. The instructor is highly engaging and doesn’t do a lot of chatter, so it is perfect for kids who want to get straight to the art. We had the paid level for about a year and found it valuable.
