This blog isn’t really written for you, because you are the one who taught me about Art For Kids Hub, but there are other people who read this who might be interested.
I’m going to tell about the videos Liza and I use to help us draw at our ZOOM get together every Sunday.
This youtube channel, called Artforkidshub, has 5.02 million subscribers! It is run by Rob Jensen, his wife Teryn, and their four kids, Jack, Hadley, Austin, and Olivia. Rob and one other member of the family appear in each video, so we get to see both a practiced and “first time” version of the drawing. It is nice to see a drawing that is Not perfect!
Rob and Teryn go by the nicknames Mr. Hub and Mrs. Hub, and they release one video every weekday. The videos are very light hearted, fun, and easy to follow along.
Liza and I watch the videos and have used them to draw all sorts of things.
One of the first animals was a giraffe. I always draw with pencil first so I can make the shape right before I watercolor, then ink it. The directions are just for the animal, so you can add whatever background you like.
A few weeks ago, Liza wanted to draw ”magical looking things” so we found this dragon. The lesson was for a silhouette, but I wanted to put in details.
I really would encourage everyone (even grownups) who thinks they can’t draw to go visit Art for Kids Hub.
