Considering helping your children learn to draw or paint? Or perhaps teaching a class to a group of children? There's a lot to take into account when setting up a class. I am currently working with a group who are 8-12 year years old; with that kind of age span, it was expected that their levels would be quite different. The course I am teaching is about drawing, but also to introduce them to various art materials and techniques including graphite pencils, coloured pencils and basic painting. We'll end the course with some fun collage projects. Read on...
If you're stuck for ideas, there are loads of great art books at the library. Spend an afternoon browsing and pick out a few that the kids may like and which cover subjects of interest to them.
Children have no fear in trying new things, indeed they have been able to laugh at some of their work, but they also work hard and have very much wanted to see good results. Watching their progress has, for me, been very rewarding and I'm hoping they'll be back for another session this spring.

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
