Paint It Kids (Guest Post)

I am definitely not an artist, so teaching art lessons is not my strength. Add in the complexity of virtual learning, and I was at a total loss. So, I asked my friend (and illustrator), Jessica to explain a little bit about the art studio she works for, in hopes that it might help teachers still bring art into their curriculum amidst the swamp of work caused by COVID-19. Here is what Jessica said…

Paint It! Kids is a small art studio that decided to jump on YouTube and start a  channel that has been showing kids cute and fun ways to paint and draw their favorite animals and characters. However, when we realized this school year is something that we have never seen before, Paint it Kids decided that we would upgrade our playlist! Paint It KIDS just released a Elements of Art video series, with more to come. These short animated videos are a great jumping off point in your art lesson. We also have begun production on a new art history series! Our first episode is up on Leonardo da Vinci. We have also begun production for the Principles of Art and Design series. We are releasing new content every week. Feel free to comment on any video for new lessons that you would like to see us create! Links Below:
