Children equate art with drawing. Many base their art confidence on their ability to draw. It takes practice. So giving children the time, space and materials to practice is key in helping foster their confidence. Breaking it down in shapes is key.
Materials to start the process: pencils, good quality eraser, sharpener and a blank art book.
Listed below are some websites and some of my favourite drawing books. Many of which can be found in your local library.
