Teach Kids To Learn To Oil Paint is a comprehensive set of Video Art Lessons designed to help you teach your children, or your grandchildren, any child or student to paint.
I have spent nearly 20 years teaching children how to paint, and this series draws upon all my experience.
This set of Video Art Lessons is unique in two respects.
First it teaches you how to instruct kids in both acrylics and traditional oils. In today’s environment we have multiple regulations in schools, housing communities and so forth that may or may not regulate the use of traditional oils with regards to children. So we pulled out all stops and included both mediums.
Secondly, this series of video art lessons talks about children’s learning habits and how best to help these young students to tap into their creativity center. For instance the biggest mistakes often made by us adult teachers is to insist the student paint our model painting. In truth, kids respond to being allowed to add their own creativity by developing their own story in each painting. We show you had to do this in this video art lesson series.
Included in the Teach Kids To Paint Video Art Series are the following video lessons.
- Kids Essentials. A two hour discussion of how kids learn creative skills and how you can capitalize and provide an environment in which they’ll return over and over and over to take classes from you.
- Kids Oil Painting Project #1 This is a simple painting of a tree on a hill and its easy to stimulate the kids imagination with a suggestion or two for a story about a tree they like. They can even add sprinkles to enhance their creation.
- Kids Oil Painting Project #2 This is a little more advanced for the kids and teaches them about sunlight, balance and framing of a painting. One of the best suggestions you can give the kids is to think of what a mountain means to you and illustrate this meaning in the story or framing foliage.
- Kids Oil Painting Project #3. This is a simple, yet stunning seascape that kids can quickly do. The water is gently lapping up against the beach. The sky is clear and the sea grass beach side is just waving at the world. Have the kids talk about the last time they went to the beach and you’ll be amazed at how their painting will represent their experience.
- Kids Oil Painting Project #4. Kids absolutely love this very simple design. Two things really capture their imagination. This is a winter ‘snowing’ scene. The snow covered fields are lacked with sprinkles and once the painting is completed the student is taught how to make weather and wind come alive in their painting. I like to have the kids talk about the last snow storm they went through, or better, what’s the best way to spend a “Snow Day” when school is canceled for inclement weather.
Kids Oil Painting Project #5. This is a quick painting of a sunflower and a daisy. Lots of discussions here on flowers will improve their attention to detail. For instant why is a sunflower so much bigger than a daisy. Or where do sunflower seeds come from.
- Kids Oil Painting Project #6. Kids love cats and dog. This is a quick painting project where kids learn a simple ‘pop art’ technique to paint their favorite pet, or someone else’s pet. Talk about what makes pets so special to people and why do they like pets.
- Kids Acrylic Painting Project #1 This is the same painting project as Kids Oil Painting Project #1, but in Acrylics.
- Kids Acrylic Painting Project #2. This is the same painting project as Kids Oil Painting Project #2, but in Acrylics.
- Kids Acrylic Painting Project #3. This is the same painting project as Kids Oil Painting Project #3, but in Acrylics.
- Kids Acrylic Painting Project #4. This is the same painting project as Kids Oil Painting Project #4, but in Acrylics.
- Kids Acrylic Painting Project #5. This is the same painting project as Kids Oil Painting Project #5, but in Acrylics.
- Kids Bonus Painting Project. Darrell’s 11-year old granddaughter teaches kids how they can paint using acrylics any animated character on canvas. Sabrina chooses a cute bunny for this class.
