What educators are saying

This was a great first week of school activity! The kids were engaged and enjoyed seeing how their drawings turned out!
My students loved directed drawing activities so much! I am so excited to see the students use this during a brain break in the day! Thank you!



My students have always loved directed drawings. It's such a peaceful and calm activity... perfect for Back to School season! Plus, they're so beneficial and include writing.

Why Directed Drawings? Not only do students enjoy learning how to draw different images, but it gives them the skills and confidence they need to explore other types of art.

How to Use Directed Drawings: These can be done as a classroom activity, an early finisher activity, or even at a writing/art station. I've included different writing and drawing options so that you can make them work for you and your students!

  • 6 drawings
  • Picture Directions for each drawing
  • Each drawing has a screen-recorded video to show the drawing motions (saved as a .mp4).
  • Writing Sheets for each drawing
  • Drawing sheets are included with the drawing steps and a space to draw
