Summer lends itself to lots of outdoor activities for learning. Getting the whole body involved is a great way to encourage visual learners to continue learning while still having fun. We have found lots of STEAM activities to keep the kids engaged.
All I wanted was to do art with kids — to teach and empower — to see their sweet faces light up with every new discovery. My young students thrived when they got the “how to” information they craved. And while teaching children how to draw, they taught me — again and again — how important art is to them. In my book, Being Visual, I talk about my 20 years experience teaching young kids how to draw by using their preferred learning style. The classes and teaching method were popular and effective, so I made a business out of it. But it’s never really been about the business.
