    What your child will learn in online drawing classes

    Here’s a look at the variety of things kids learn in online drawing programs. Consult individual classes listed above to discover what their focus is. 

    Varied drawing styles and media. Cartooning, animation, sketching, related visual arts are the focus in an online drawing class. Students will work mainly with paper and canvas, but also have opportunities to learn design software. These varied drawing styles and media help young artists determine which form and medium they like best. 

    Artistic skills. Through instruction and practice, kids improve their ability to represent the real world and learn to illustrate more accurately all the time. As in any kids' drawing class, they learn the basics of animation, comic art, and more. They learn to create pieces that resonate with their audience and evoke emotion. Every child has some basic artistic abilities that are put to the test and developed further in an online drawing class.

    Independent problem solving. Virtual classes give kids more space to learn on their own and discover solutions to their own artistic challenges. Working independently, they grow in their resourcefulness and independent thinking.

    Experimentation. Online drawing classes encourage kids to experiment and find their peculiar niche. Through this, they’re encouraged to be open-minded and stretch themselves. 

    Basic visual storytelling skills. Kids will learn how to use foreground and background, and apply colour, tone, and perspective to tell a narrative. These basic visual storytelling skills can then be applied to other artistic pursuits as they continue to develop and grow as artists. 

    Three benefits of online drawing classes

    Here is what your child will gain from virtual programs that teach drawing. 

    Promotes independent work habits. Online learning allows kids to work synchronously and asynchronously. Asynchronous learning relies on students’ independent learning and practice, and they learn to develop responsibility for their own deadlines, etc. Synchronous learning classes encourage kids to participate during class, working in real-time with their instructor. This also benefits their development of independent study skills. 

    Self-reflection and personal growth. Since online drawing classes are conducted from the comfort of a student’s home, kids have more time to work independently. In the comfort of their own home, kids are able to self-critique their work. Students feel more encouraged to explore their own ideas and feel supported by the feedback of the online instructor. 

    Development of a portfolio. As children complete art pieces, they’ll begin to establish a portfolio of their work. Their improvement and art style will be visible in these pieces. Kids who want to pursue visual arts occupations like interior design, architecture, or web design and other visual arts will learn to master skills and add material to their art portfolio.

    Questions to ask online drawing classes

    Here are some questions to ask kids’ online drawing classes you browse above, to make sure you find one that fits with your family’s needs.

    1. What tools should be bought before class?
    2. What software will kids need before they can begin the class?
    3. How involved are family members expected to be?
