    What do drawing lessons and classes teach?

    All drawing lessons focus on different artistic styles, which is why there are so many specialized classes to choose from. These include sketching, portraiture, cartooning, and digital art, to name just a few. Basic visual arts instruction is provided in each class, which includes techniques in shading, colour theory, aesthetic literacy, and perspective. 

    There is a mix between specialized and general drawing classes. In general drawing classes, kids learn and practise the basics of drawing, while specialized drawing classes focus on specific skills and styles such as portfolio curating, worldbuilding, and drawing fundamentals. This can often be preparatory for high school and postsecondary artistic pursuits. Specialized classes may require a certain level of skill to register. 

    In some drawing classes, kids participate in other fun activities such as painting or arts and crafts. Class sizes are typically small in drawing classes, making for small student-to-teacher ratios. Basic drawing classes can start as low as $15 per lesson, while more advanced options can range between $100 to $1000.

    About advanced drawing programs

    Advanced drawing lessons nurture originality, creative expression, and stylization. Children challenge their creative mind by creating fantastical, yet believable, characters and worlds. This gives them a kind of artistic freedom which can inspire them to continue drawing outside of class. 

    In fact, some kids eventually become professional artists. Fortunately, there are advanced classes that specialize in helping kids build their professional portfolio. In fact, some programs help students prepare their applications to art colleges and universities, increasing their chances for success. Students can also grow their professional network by working closely with their teachers and learning from guest artists. Some writing classes focus on related professions like architecture, animation, and illustration.

    Why enrol in a drawing lessons?

    Drawing lessons and classes are great ways for kids to understand and foster their talents. It’s also an amazing way for them to develop a passion. Here are some other benefits of drawing programs:

    • Find mentors in teachers. Teachers help kids refine their drawing skills and can inspire them to further pursue their interest in art. Each teacher guides children to reach their full artistic potential. They create strong relationships with students in the process.
    • A mental health boost for some kids, drawing is a precision-based activity that can distract one from upsetting feelings, stressors, and experiences.
    • Academic benefits. Kids learn and develop organizational, problem-solving, and analytical skills in class. In academic settings, these soft skills can be applied to virtually all subjects. In digital drawing classes specifically, kids learn more about technology, which has enormous importance in school and out.
    • Creative freedom is a staple of all drawing classes. Teachers allow students to visualize and design their drawings in ways that excite them and help them express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings.
