Why should we teach kids drawing?

The ability to escape into our own imaginary world, then re-create that imagery into an artwork is not only fulfilling, it can also help us to make sense of our world. Properly learned drawing skills provide your child with a means to express themselves in a way that words cannot! When we teach our kids to draw we gift them a skill for life. These beautiful drawings were created by children studying this art course.

"Creativity is recognised as one of the most critical skills for the next generation. It's value reaches well beyond the arts to affect every discipline and numerous industries." As written on the Imagination.org  website here: https://imagination.org/why-creativity/value-of-creativity/

What's different about this course?

Cindy Wider teaches a unique method of helping children learn to 'think about their thinking.' She teaches that through asking very specific questions at the right time during the drawing process, almost anyone can learn to draw just like they learn to read or write.

Rather than leaving the skill of drawing to chance she knows that the best time for children to learn to draw is when they are young. "Kids can learn to draw and the earlier the better! The best time to teach kids to draw is before they think they can't. So many kids give up drawing at the age of about 12 years and many go into adulthood believing they just 'aren't talented' for drawing. It's time for that myth to end now" says the course author Cindy Wider.

"Cindy Wider is a pioneer to drawing. What her drawing courses and training can help students achieve is remarkable..." Read the full testimonial here by Dr Karl K. Jeffries | Doctor of Philosophy | Creativity Professional

From the Mums

Annette West

My name is Annette and my daughter Briella has been studying the Cindy Wider Method at her school during 2019. I have been amazed with the growth in my daughter through her expression with art and her skills. 

She has struggled in many areas with her schooling and I'm blown away with her growth and ability to express herself through art and the outcomes it has had with her academics and personal confidence.   

This class has been a standout in Briella’s life through her schooling in 2019.  Very grateful to Cindy and her methods of teaching kids to draw.

Our 10 year old son, who is high-functioning Autistic, has been participating in Cindy Wider art lessons at his school for the last year.  

He has grasped complex concepts due to Cindy’s easy-to-understand curriculum and shown great progress in his skills and technique.  We now have a budding artist enjoying the freedom of expressing his quirky ways.
