It just is. You know it and I know it.
Wishing you weren’t too busy for kids’ art?
You know art is an important way to foster your children’s creativity, but life is just so darned busy. You’ve been pinning boards full of art activities to do with the kids someday, but when? And how? Just getting started seems overwhelming!
With video classes, you can easily introduce kids to art activities and techniques at home, even if you don’t consider yourself creative. Video is a powerful and inspiring way to learn (no matter your child’s learning style). Unfortunately, YouTube is a hot mess of content and ads, and most online instruction is aimed at adults.
That’s why I created my Kids’ Art Club, ART SPOT, with new kid-friendly art instruction videos released each week for preschoolers through tweens!
With my video art classes, I come into your home and walk you and your kids through engaging art activities virtually. Let them get creative while you get dinner ready---OR sit down and enjoy the art activity together with your child!
You will no longer feel like you have to learn everything yourself first or drive your kids to yet another expensive and time-consuming class.
My Kids Art Club makes it easy for you to foster creativity at home, provide fun activities, and rock at parenting. Your kids will feel proud and so will you. It’s a win, win for everyone.
Besides the enticing library of video art classes to choose from (with new ones added each week!), the ART SPOT Kids’ Art Club membership includes a library of drawing prompts and printables, with new ones added regularly.

My daughter did the art activities on her own or with a friend, with little intervention from me. I was surprised by how useful it was for the kids to watch a video tutorial.
We don't use many screens at home, especially when friends are over. And I generally have plenty of craft materials available for kids and our little art nook devoted to doing art. So, when I saw the process, I was surprised that I liked it so much.
The activities you chose were such that after the kids learned the technique, they wanted to try more and more ideas using the same technique. Also, the draw of "watching" a video enticed the friends who were over.

The Kids' Art Club is created for preschoolers through tweens. Younger and older children can join in for the art fun, but we had kids aged 3 through 12 in mind when creating many of the activities and videos. That said, there will be some activities that are better suited to older children and some that will appeal more to younger ones. The suggested age range for each activity will be identified.
There will be a materials list for each activity, so you and your children can identify the materials you need ahead of time. Most of the art activities use a few widely available art supplies and household ingredients. You probably have many of the materials already! Some activities, may call for materials that you don’t already have on hand, such as contact paper, shaving cream, or liquid watercolors. In that case you can choose to buy them, use an alternative, or find another activity from the ART SPOT library. All materials should be easy to find at a local supermarket or craft store.
It depends on the activity, the child, and the family! The kids' art videos are set up so that a school-aged child could do them primarily on his or her own. You could also do some of the activities together with your child the first time (an excellent way to connect through creativity!) and then let them explore the art activity on their own in the future, once they have the knowledge and confidence from trying it once.
I hear you! Art can be messy. But so can childhood and life in general. I help you and your family minimize the art messes as much as possible. In our kids art videos, we have a section called Set Up for Success, after we Gather our Materials and before we start to create. A big part of setting up for success is making sure we protect our work surface and set up properly. I’ve had years of experience doing these activities with my own kids and in art groups, so I can help you maximize the fun while making the clean up as stress-free as possible. Sometimes this means using a tray or art mat, sometimes it means covering the entire table with a waterproof tablecloth (you can pick up a cheap plastic one for a dollar or two and reuse it many times).
The ART SPOT Kids Art Club membership is set up to make it easier for your family to do fun art activities at home and to foster your children’s creativity.
