A Little Lesson ~ Free videos for kids by CW teachers

Meet our Little Lessons Teachers

Introducing fun and free Little Lessons for kids (and kids-at-heart). Inspired by artwork all around the world, Eddie Davis, III makes an Etruscan Warrior from twisty ties, recycled paper, tape, and glue. Ben Leyer shows how to create an original cartoon character after looking at ancient Chinese ceramics and African Chi Wara sculptures. Perhaps you love abstract dripping, splashing, and pouring paintings but would rather keep your house clean? Amy J. Fisher shows how to make action painting for cooped up kiddos. Do you like to sketch? Would you like to sketch? Tamia Alston-Ward shows you how to sketch, blend, and emphasize colors in her drawings of Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Fritz Trautmann. And finally, for lots of fun, check out Faith Gruver’s video where she shows little kids lots of ways to make painted and printed inspired foolproof artwork.

If you like these try considering a class.

All of these art projects give you the steps and encouragement create with us from the comfort of your own home. Be sure to share your art and tag it using the hashtag #alittlelesson so we can post your creations on our social media!
