Drawing for Children Online Art Course 1
Tutored by John Byrne
This exciting introductory course is a fantastic way for young artists to learn drawing skills at an advanced level. With our help, they can develop their understanding of form, shade and composition, giving them a real boost before they head into secondary school..
Give your children the head start they deserve with the Drawing for Children (1) course from London Art College, which has a tutor to give feedback on their coursework.
Tailored for ages 7 and up these hands-on courses aim to
introduce young students to the fundamentals of drawing and using colour in a
captivating and engaging manner. Both courses are richly illustrated with
easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides and exercises.
Throughout these courses, young students gain hands-on
experience and can choose from a variety of exercises at the end of each
section. These exercises can be submitted to their tutor for feedback and
advice, ensuring a supportive learning experience. The courses are thoughtfully
structured to provide a strong foundation, guiding students in understanding
drawing techniques and the use of colour.
The courses are visually stimulating, featuring numerous
illustrations and straightforward exercises. Our tutors are committed to
engaging each student individually and encouraging them to enjoy the process of
drawing correctly while having fun.
Our Drawing for Children courses are both colourful and
highly visual, with step-by-step exercises complemented by clear explanations.
This approach has proven to be highly effective, as children can readily
observe their progress, and our tutors are available to assist if they
encounter any difficulties.
In today's educational landscape, many parents are seeking
ways to broaden their children's interests beyond traditional school hours, and
some even opt for homeschooling. These courses are specially designed to assist
parents in introducing their children to the fascinating world of art, with the
hope of nurturing a lifelong interest in the arts.
The course covers:
- Shapes and definition
- Colour and shade
- Simple animal drawings
- Line drawing
And much more...
At the end of the course you can present them with a certificate that they can show off to their friends while taking pride in their new drawing and sketching skills.
With a grounding in art that they can build on for the future, who knows where this course will take them? If they choose, they can progress onto the Drawing for Children (2) and learn more advanced techniques of drawing.

The course can be competed in about 15 hours which should be spread over several weeks minimum. We do allow up to 2 years to complete the course, so it can be done just during school holidays if preferred.
Students are able to upload their artwork to the 'The Art Room' on our website. Each student is
given a unique username and password on enrolment for their own private area in
The Art Room.
Students can upload their artwork for the tutor to collect and
critique. The tutor will then upload feedback for the student to download. If
you do not have facilities to upload your artwork, you can mail your artwork to
the tutors centre and receive your artwork back with your critique.
It is essential you label all
packages/artwork with your student number.
All our courses are written to be your comprehensive guide into
each of their subject matters. We understand that students appreciate
clarification about various aspects of their work from a course tutor, whom
provide reassurance that techniques are put into practice effectively.
Each courses has its own dedicated Tutor. The tutor keeps the
course up to date and relevant to today's students. They are available to the
individual student for advice and encouragement. Each course has regular
exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the
student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to
test themselves as they go along. Students are encouraged to submit the
assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique.
Coursework can be submitted online, as digital photographs, in your individual art room account and the tutor will upload their critique for you to download and retain forever.
On successful completion of this course you will have studied new skills and gained knowledge for your own enjoyment and development.
