These free online art classes for kids are an amazing resource! Check out these amazing free opportunities for art that can be done anywhere, anytime!
Are you an artist…
You don’t have to be an artist yourself to provide your kids with quality art experiences. A few basic supplies, a little corner of the kitchen table, and a few empty minutes are all they need! These online art classes for kids linked below will give them a place to start, some structure, some concept, and some instruction. Let them take it from there!
And maybe you really are an artist! I am and I still love to see my kids sitting down to engage in these resources! As an art teacher myself I see the value in soaking in a lesson by someone else. I want my kids to benefit from the perspective, talent, and voice from as many different talented teachers as possible!
A free mini digital art course about turning shape into form….
This free digital class explores the difference between shape and from and will walk through some examples of both in the form of well known art pieces.
Your kids will pick up some great basic pencils skills that they will be able to apply to their own artwork!
All you need to take part in this class is pencil, paper and about 20-30 minutes!
More online art classes for kids….
Here at the Kitchen Table Classroom I’ve built up a nice collection of art lessons that have a video option embedded right in the post! That means you can create right alongside me- for free!
This video lesson will walk your artists through not only creating their own color wheel but also other color theory vocabulary like complementary colors, arm and cool colors, analogous colors, and value.
I’ve fallen in love with making these video tutorials for you! So check back often! Lots of my new posts come with video and I’m always updating old projects to include a video component as well!
Is there a specific project you’d like to see a video demo on? Let me know!
YouTube for online art classes for kids….
You bet! I think YouTube gets a bad rap. Sure, there’s plenty of content there you wouldn’t sit your kiddo down to watch. But, I think there’s even more content on YouTube that your young artist can be inspired by and learn from!
Channels about drawing, arts and crafts, and even art history means your kiddos can have a well rounded art experience without you being an expert yourself!
Teach your child to draw with free online art classes…
Drawing is a foundational skill, kind of a basic. Drawing is a learned skill. No matter the skill level your kiddo is starting at they can and will benefit from instruction and practice.
These lesson can be completed with either pencil, pen or marker. None require expensive supplies or a high mess tolerance level.
These online drawing resources give you a place to turn when you don’t have the time or experience to be the teacher. Best of all each of the resources listed here is completely free- woohoo!
Virtual gallery tours….
This list isn’t necessarily online art class but it is a great online art resource! Visit seven top notch museums from the comfort of home!
