Don’t you wish you could have some creative fun with your child (without all that fuss and mess)?

Crafting can offer a wonderful opportunity to connect with your children. But what about the need to have all the right supplies on hand, not to mention clearing up paint puddles and glue-y brushes afterwards? Hmm – not so much fun after all, methinks 🙁

We all know the internet is groaning with creative ideas for you and the kids

But where’s the spontaneity? Most of them require a load of art supplies. And when you hunt out what you have on hand, chances are the paint pots are all dried up and the glue resembles a rock in its container. The popsicle sticks that you bought not long ago seem to have gone ‘Pop!’ alright – and vanished into thin air – and as for the pipe cleaners…

Aargh!

It’s more like a pipedream than a plan

And what if by some magical chance you have the necessary supplies, and the chosen craft plan works like clockwork? Well, you guessed it – there’s still all that pesky mopping up to do for the aftermath.

But what if there was something that involved *No Supplies* beyond a pencil and paper?

Yes, you read that right – a full-on, creative activity that requires only a pencil and paper (in fact, erasers are strictly forbidden!)

TA-DAH! Presenting “Cartooning with Kids (No Prior Skill Required!)”

Cartooning with Kids (No Prior Skill Required!) is designed to take you and your child on a fun journey towards a drawing destination, together.

What this is NOT:

  • only for ‘artistic’ adults who can already draw confidently (yes, adults often struggle to draw more than kids 😉 )
  • a daunting work load
  • a set of technical drawing lessons

The person you are needs to shine through

Here’s what it is:
It’s a series of short, simple assignments designed to get you drawing fun cartoon characters with ease. Each step is presented as a video demonstration so the lessons are easy to follow, and you can pause or rewind as often as you like. You do them at your own convenience.

And we build up to the completed character one teeny-weeny step at a time, so you won’t get overwhelmed.

You receive the finished sketch directly to your Inbox in high resolution, digital format, all ready to present to your chosen print provider. That way, you have full control over the final dimensions of your gift, as well as the material it is printed on.

Will my child want to draw alongside me?

Kids love to draw – as long as the characters are exciting for them. So why not ask your child, “What sort of person or animal would you love to draw?” It might be monsters or knights (or princesses or ponies). Let them choose 🙂

What if I really, really cannot draw?

These lessons are designed for adults who have not drawn since grade school, plus any child who is willing to take up a pencil. They use a tried-and-tested approach that has succeeded in turning ‘unartistic’ adults into competent cartoonists.

If you are prepared to put in some practice, you will be astonished at what you can produce.
