I'm not sure if you can teach kids art. They have their own preconceived ideas of what art should be. If you give them a simple assignment they always come up with the same solutions.
I have yet to figure out who teaches them to put the sun in the upper corner of their painting.
I have decided to instruct them and not let them know they are being instructed.
You see, to really teach them you have to let them teach themselves. Just keep them drawing and painting. Give them drawing exercises that improve their ability to think, that's where the change is.
The rest takes care of itself, or they lose interest. That's ok we don't need that many artists anyway.
Talk to you later
