This mural was painted by yours truly, and although it no longer exists, it's still a fun video!
The Art Assignment
This channel is a great source of information and inspiration. The videos explore why we make art, different genres, artists, and gives viewers the opportunity to complete interesting assignments. This channel is appropriate for a wide range of ages but will be most interesting to students age 10-18.
Mark Kistler has been an artist and art educator for many years. He had a TV series in America in the 1980's that was called The Secret City. It was a program that taught children (such as myself haha)to draw in 3D; which is a fundamental skill! Mark has had many students go on to become animators at Pixar, Dreamworks, and Disney. He makes learning to draw in 3D fun and easy! These videos are better for students aged 7-12 (or for anyone who is interested in building their 3D drawing skills). The link below will take you to his Youtube Channel page that has tons of tutorial or "how to draw" videos!
Muffalo Potato is a Youtube web series that teaches children how to draw familiar characters using numbers and letters! It is great practice for writing skills but also builds drawing confidence. The videos are fun and entertaining. AND... there's PUPPETS! This series is most appropriate for younger students (Pre K- G2).
This youtube artist makes excellent videos about using her sketchbook. She has a series on 30 ways to fill a sketchbook, and she works with different styles and mediums. If you are at a loss for sketchbook or drawing ideas, she is a great source for inspiration! Her videos are most appropriate for older or more skilled students (Aged 12- 18). Below you'll find a link to her youtube channel.
