Teaching art to your kids is actually simple.

There are a million resources at your fingertips and all you have to do is be curious, be positive, and be an example. If you can do those three things, the rest will fall into place. Being curious means that you yourself are eager to try to learn something new. Being positive means that you should give constructive comments and lots of encouragement to your kids. And finally, be an example for others to follow. But, if you simply don't have the time to do it, here are some suggestions from our friends who have children.

Sevada Art Studio - drawing lessons for kids ages 5 to 105. The founder of the studio, Samvel Sevada, is an amazing educator who loves what he does and does it very well. Students at Sevada Art Studio regularly participate in exhibitions around Armenia and abroad with the guidance of their teacher Samvel Sevada. They get hands-on experience on how to conduct life as potential working artists, ultimately taking responsibility for their own careers as they continue to grow and learn.
