At DecoArt we believe art is for everyone, and we want to encourage the world to paint with us. Families, parents, educators, and communities have all faced immeasurable challenges this year. Such an unprecedented disruption in our day-to-day lives has altered the ways we interact, learn, and even spend our time. During these times of great upheaval, the Arts & Crafts industry has become essential, and it’s clear activities to entertain children, occupy time, and facilitate de-stressing are critical.
In response to this clear and pressing need, DecoArt© has launched a free online learning center. “Art For Everyone” is a resource for artists, teachers, students, and curious creators of all ages and abilities now available on the DecoArtR website and DecoArt® YouTube channel.
This free video library will cover a variety of art concepts and subjects, from the anatomy of a brush to advanced design composition. Our new Art for Everyone Education Series is a collection of videos taught by accomplished artists from all around the U.S. and Canada. These short, easy-to-follow lessons are for artists of all ages and abilities looking to build a solid foundation of artistic knowledge.
We cover a wide variety of topics in these 4 categories: Art Basics, Beyond Basics, Art Wellness, and Creative Kids.
Art Basics covers artistic concepts for the absolute beginner. Learn about topics such as how to care for your paint brushes, prep surfaces, or how to use color theory.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, go beyond with these fun videos. We give a more in-depth look at several artistic concepts and techniques such as composition, mixed media, or how to properly use glitter paint.
These videos teach several artistic practices shown to improve health and wellness. Some of the topics we cover are journaling, meditative painting, and how to make dot art. Even experienced artists can learn some new relaxing techniques.
These lessons are perfect for kids looking to exercise their creativity! Part art and part art history, these fun and engaging lessons show kids how to paint like famous artists.
This is just a glimpse of what this free program has to offer, there’s lots more to discover. Visit the DecoArtR website and DecoArt® YouTube channel to see our other “Art For Everyone” lessons. Happy making!
