Terrific YouTube Channel for Arts Teachers

February, 2015
In today’s post, I am sharing with you this cool YouTube channel titled ShooRayner Drawing. This channel provides a variety of instructional videos to help students and kids (and anyone else interested in drawing) learn to draw better. Videos are created by artist and children’s book author and illustrator Shoo Rayner. I have spent sometime sifting through some of these drawing videos and found them really interesting. You could probably use these videos with your own students to teach them how to draw different things. Most importantly, the videos provide kids a very solid starting basis into the concept of drawing which will, once mastered, enable them to create gorgeous drawings of  anything they want.

There is also a section for artists and advanced creators where Rayner shares interesting pieces of advice about drawing and being a creative person. Here is a sample of Rayner's work. This is a video explanation on how to draw cartoon style people.
