It’s so easy to just stick to our textbooks as we teach our kids but it can get plain boring for them. They’re not allowed to express their creativity. Then art gets left behind because it’s the “extra” subject. You’re barely able to get through the main subjects that art slips away. You have art and craft supplies but you really should provide better instruction. You’re not artsy yourself so you have no idea what you’re doing. Enter Drawn to Discover, a new online enrichment program for children aged 4-11. They teach science, math, language arts, geography, history, handwriting, and more… through art.
Imagine if you didn’t do art as its own subject, but you did it as a part of the other subjects you learn.
Drawing promotes fine motor muscle control, attention to detail, increases confidence, creativity, and problem-solving skills. It’s a wonderful work of accomplishment when your child completes and project and is ready to show it off to you.
Drawn to Connections is one of the programs that we started with. It started with a warm-up lesson where they practice drawing and coloring activities before they get to the actual lesson. The drew dragons, a dog, flowers and a patterned flower. My daughter who is 6 loved this and my son who is 10 did a great job too. I was happy to find something that they could both do together and you can see the difference in their work level.
The projects are bright and colorful and you can see the amount of attention they have to put towards their work to come out with great projects. I was worried my daughter would feel overwhelmed, but she isn’t and the instruction is easy enough for her to follow too.
The kids will pause the video to work on something if it’s moving too quickly but they haven’t had to do it that often.
Drawn To Discover is an online, educational program promoting childhood literacy and creativity. They use technology to promote handwriting, drawing, and creative thinking.
We don’t want kids to be staring at screens passively, we want them to truly learn. If you have a child who is begging for more creativity or who needs to refine their handwriting skills, this program is for them.
It is geared towards kids who are 4-11. An annual subscription to their site is $119.88 and the monthly membership is $11.99.
