Drawing Ideas for Kids: Creativity Exercise

I have been teaching for almost 15 years, and I have noticed something in my students: creativity is dying.  Students are being bombarded by tests, textbooks, video games, computers, homework, and more.  They don't spend enough time dreaming.  Creativity is a muscle.  It needs to be exercised.  If you are looking for amazing drawing ideas, you shouldn't look to a list or a book, but you should start doodling, start dreaming.

I would like to make this blog a little more useful for readers.   I plan on updating it with a special course that I teach my students that helps them come up with their own crazy drawing ideas.  It is a course in creativity!  It will show you how to start with some basic shapes that anyone can draw and turn them into amazing ideas for games, stories, books, or toys, but, most importantly, they will help you become creative.  

I am  new to blogging, but if you are up for the adventure, stay tuned.  In the meantime, I will be posting some random drawing ideas for kids. I hope you like them.

Six to ten is a dangerous time for kids and their creativity.  The Drawing ideas for Kids course will help keep those imaginations sharp.  It will also be free.
