What kids learn in drawing class

In the professional learning environment created by programs listed above, kids acquire a variety of skills that make them better artists. Here’s a brief look at skills you can acquire and develop:

Comic art. Kids learn to create characters and to tell stories through comics. This is included in the curriculum of numerous drawing classes for kids listed above, although there are some that focus entirely on this art (see below).

Animation. A number of classes listed above, offer training in or a focus on animation. These classes will have a longer run that will allow students to immerse themselves in a long project.

Software. Many classes expose students to programs like Adobe Photoshop, allowing them to work with those programs and develop skills that expand their creative repertoire.

Basic visual arts skills. Cartoons, animations, sketches, and paintings all use the same key visual arts techniques of composition, etc. Classes teach placement, shading, perspective, and  contouring. These skills apply to other art forms beyond drawing. 

Self-expression. With the multiple media opportunities, classes allow kids to experiment with their unique self-expression. Kids begin to find their artistic niche, and they explore their energy, emotions, and creativity in every art piece they conceive. They learn for themselves the value of having a creative outlet.

Observational skills. In order for drawings to be convincing and authentic, kids must practice their observational skills. Kids are expected to observe human nature and physical movement, and reproduce their observations in the characters and stories that emerge on their page, canvas, or screen. 

Organization skills. Although experimentation is encouraged in drawing classes, kids must be able to follow instructions and remain organized. Managing time, staying on task, and being obedient to general drawing rules are practiced in classes. As a byproduct of class, kids will learn how organization and discipline can improve and sharpen artistic skills.

Six benefits of drawing classes

Numerous studies and surveys show that kids develop core soft skills like independence, self confidence and more just by taking part in extra-curricular activities. Look at some of the further benefits they gain from drawing lessons: 

Exercises imagination. Broadening kids’ visual arts exposure exercises their imagination. Every child’s imagination needs encouragement and development. Drawing classes give students the necessary tools, skills, and techniques to bring their imaginings to fruition. 

Learn from talented examples. Drawing class instructors will pass their expertise and talent onto students. Learning from these models gives kids a chance to witness their brilliance in skill and technique, and learn from it. The dedication and artistry of instructors will inspire and influence young learners.

Inspires future creative careers. Even if kids don’t wish to pursue arts directly, occupations such as interior design, architecture, and graphic design require drawing skills. Drawing classes prepare students for these and other creative, fulfilling careers. 

Work towards a portfolio. As kids begin to master their drawing skills and create increasingly sophisticated pieces, they establish a portfolio. The portfolio is an accumulation of the student’s art style and a demonstration of their best work. It can be used to get into private schools and/or university art programs.  

Exposure to digital design. Drawing classes introduce kids to design media that includes online or downloadable software programs like Adobe Photoshop and more. Kids delve into the world of 3D drawing and animation.

Broadens visual storytelling skills. In all design mediums, kids learn techniques like shading, perspective, and composition. These contribute to telling a compelling story. These skills are useful in fields like marketing, advertising, content marketing, and more. 

More camps and programs you may be interested in:

You can use OurKids.net to find many other camps and programs related to drawing. Here are some examples:

Arts camp offers a wide variety of programming that allows kids to explore different creative endeavours. An exposure to a range of pursuits increases kids’ creativity and exposes them to relate arts they might not have yet tried. 

Visual arts camp focuses on these arts. Within this broad field, we also offer painting camps, graphic design, cartooning and other visual arts. 

Cartooning camps focus entirely on this art form, with camps on our site focusing on creating characters or animation, among other emphases. 

Coding classes use drawing classes' introduction to digital creation as a launchpad. Skills in drawing can be the basis for deepening interests in related areas explored in, for example, video game design camp

Questions to ask about art classes and teachers

Here are questions to consider when you are comparing drawing classes: 

  • What software must be downloaded before classes? What tools must be purchased before class?
  • How much experience do instructors have with the specific design medium?
  • Are children encouraged to work on their art pieces outside of class? How much are kids expected to work on projects outside of class?
