Teaching art to children

Whether you are homeschooling or just to keep kids busy during the summer, these are some great blogs to follow for inspiration and "how to" instructions.

Concept to Object and crayon art

This Lansing, MI artist has wonderful creations to sell on etsy (check out discount codes here), but also shows you how to do some neat DIY art projects.  Her crayon art was featured at the 2011 East Lansing art festival. She graciously provided crayon art instructions in case you want to try your hand at making an original art piece yourself.  It would be a great outdoor summer project to do with the kids using the sun.

If you are a mother or teacher of preschoolers, this is a "must-follow" blog!  She gives complete step by step instructions for drawing objects so you do not have to be an artist yourself.  It's very empowering! The art projects use simple supplies that you'll likely have on hand or can easily obtain from a box store or dollar store. The near-daily blog posts show you what artwork is going on in her classroom.  So you can use this site to help you plan your own curriculum and activities.

Here are some wonderful tutorials:
