About This Class

Are you looking for an exciting art project for your child?

Do you want an experienced art teacher instructing your child through the creative process?

The Dancing Owl Art Project may be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners in mind, this project is perfect for children ages 6-10 years old.

There are three steps in this art project:

  • Step 1: Drawing
  • Step 2: Painting
  • Step 3: Adding Marker Detail 

The teaching process used for the drawing portion of the project is a kid-tested, step-by-step method that will both inspire and delight your child into drawing action! This process involves organizing shapes and lines together until a recognizable outcome is achieved.

After students complete the drawing portion of their project, they will move onto painting the project with watercolor paints. Students will learn basic watercolor techniques and apply these techniques to complete their project. Finally, students will be encourged to apply marker detail onto their projects.

This project is designed to give young children the tools they need to begin their artistic journey into self-expression, reflection, and creative thinking.
