In our homeschool/family, I feel very fortunate to have children who enjoy drawing. This is NOT a gift that they received from their dad nor their mom. It’s amazing to see children who ‘practice’ drawing…….religiously, in order to get better. Needless to say and sadly to say it’s not been something that I have ‘fanned’ the flames of interest for them. Although, I did allow our third oldest to take a local art class.
This online drawing program may give some help and guidance to your homeschooling children who would like to learn to develop the gift and art of drawing. Maybe you will even want to incorporate it into you homeschool.
