Resources for Continuing Art at Home

Families have expressed interest in ways to continue making art at home! Kaiser has prepared a list of resources to keep your kids making art. Here are her recommendations:

For younger artists, I recommend providing materials and letting them create however they like! Some good materials to have on hand are blocks, play dough, crayons, markers, and scissors and paper for collage. It doesn't need to be construction paper - you can cut up free magazines and newspapers.

The following apps and sites are most appropriate for older kids (2nd grade and up). Enjoy creating with your artists!
