If you’re looking for art activities for you and your kiddos, can I recommend the art tutorials from Let’s Make Art? I’ve been working with their tutorials this year and I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I’ve been, both with the process and with the results. I had zero painting experience when I started back in November, and now I’ve actually sold several of my paintings. No one’s more surprised than me.
Anyway, they offer their tutorials free… online, you can download and print the outlines they use, and you only need to provide your own paint and watercolor paper. Or you can buy their kits which come with everything you’ll need (although you’ll want additional paper if your family is painting together).
I don’t get any sort of kickback for recommending Let’s Make Art. I’m just a very satisfied customer. I’m going to put some of my work below to give you an idea of what I’ve been doing with them.
