How to Draw with Arty Crafty Kids
At Arty Crafty Kids we have a number of tools within our arsenal to help encourage children to draw, learn and refine their skills. These include: traditional ‘how to draw guides’; flow drawing that encourages children to engage in their natural rhythms and use repetitive movements to form lines and shapes; a number of design prompts and grid drawings.
Doodle Bug Design Prompts
Presented with an empty space, children may fill their bugs with patterns, doodles and/or explore blending colors and color combinations. When children make a shift from simple coloring to design, they move from engaged to empowered creative thinkers – problem solvers. They’re a fantastic way to inspire creativity without the overwhelm of creating something from scratch, which some children may find intimidating.
These templates are a super way to kick start the imagination! Immersive and fun, children will love testing out their design skills. To get them started, make a few suggestions – stars, hearts, rainbows or polka dots every color under the sun will be sure to inspire.
