Best how-to-draw art show

Awesome kid-friendly how-to art show. Simple instruction and kids get such a kick out of how great their drawings turn out. Rob ( the art teacher) always demonstrates the drawing step by step with a member of his family and emphasizes to do your best and have fun. A great confidence booster for kids. Highly recommended.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (46):

The simple art projects on this video-based website are activities young kids should enjoy -- because some are based on seasonal topics or famous cartoon characters, and because they're easy enough to complete without getting frustrated. In the videos, which feature music and opening graphics, the site owner works on a project alongside one of his children, which provides a nice example of both a child's effort and an adult's version. The host and site owner walks viewers through each step, and to keep things moving, certain parts of a project are sometimes sped up.

The site's only misstep is its written instructions; in some projects, they're included, along with a materials list. In others, the information is only conveyed verbally. Adding detailed information to each project page, and potentially tips or general advice, would be a huge help. Art for Kids Hub has paid an admirable amount of attention to ensuring kids can learn how to do each project step; including written project information would help parents prepare for and help kids complete the site's art activities.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
