A child who is an artist or a child who simply needs a break from online academic classes, connoisseurs of art around the globe have a lot to offer to them during the lockdown and school closure. Take cues for the next activities for your students from the list we prepared here:
1.Children’s Summer Festival by JKK
Jawahar Kala Kendra, an art hub based in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, virtually followed the summer holiday tradition with its ‘Online Learning – Children’s Summer Festival.’ The art festival for children began on 14 May and will go on till 27 June 2020. The classes and programmes are organized live on Facebook and later uploaded on their YouTube channel. It requires no registration or any sort of fees to attend the classes.
As a part of its visual arts online learning session, an abstract painting class was held by artist Nikhat Tasneem Quazi. She taught fundamental elements needed for a successful abstract painting with a brief abstract painting history lesson. Students can learn about colouring, layering, composition and much more related to this style of painting. She also demonstrates how to practice sketching on a drawing pad using a pencil or charcoal.
2. Hobby In A Box
This Mumbai-based (India) creative hub uses its social media channel to conduct free live art and craft workshops daily on Facebook and Instagram at 5:30 pm IST. The channel covers classes like the art of water painting and sketching with its team of trained artists and renowned guest artist.

4. Lunch Doodles
Mo Willems, an award-winning author and illustrator, teamed up with the United States National Cultural Center to start a YouTube series on illustrations for children. This started in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. The series teaches ways of using a pen for doodling and overall polishes your pen skills. It uses the hashtag #LunchDoodlesWithMoWillems under which you can find work from various artists, who participate in the series.
Thank you @mo.willems.studio and @kennedycenter for the lunch doodles with Mo series! We are a few weeks behind but my kids loved it and they are excited to go through all the episodes. #lunchdoodleswithmowillems #artathome #kidart #molunchdoodles #schoolathome #stayhealthy #momof5kids #doodle #funforallages
