Quick Tips About These Online Lessons

The beauty about video art lessons is that you can pause and go back and forth as you see fit. I usually do one round with the kids to kick them off and watch to see if they start struggling with speed. Then I REMIND them that they can PAUSE the video at any time.

As soon as they remember that they are in control of the teacher – unlike a real class – they feel so much more confident! You will instantly see a switch. When they first start following along, they will probably be shouting frazzled things like, SHE IS GOING SO FAST! I WILL NEVER CATCH UP! I CAN’T DO THIS!

But don’t worry! Just pause the video and rewind it 15 seconds. It just takes one time of you showing them that! And BOOM! All the stress disappears. It’s so funny because we do these at-home lessons all the time because of the current state of the world and we always start off with hysteria. And then – they end up spending 90 minutes drawing ALL THE THINGS on their own.

But as a mom, I had to tell you that it starts off a little bumpy because it’s new. So, be warned. 🙂 Just stay with them until they settle otherwise they won’t be able to feel like they can do it.
