Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems

In response to the social distancing and quarantining in March of 2020, The Kennedy Center brought Mo Willems streaming to our homes with their artist-in-residency program “LUNCH DOODLES with Mo Willems!”

We’re in love with it! It is engaging. The kids giggle and participate, and most of all, are proud of the work they’re making. In fact, this Saturday, the first thing our son did was doodle a Saturday, March 28 design.

You can watch each of the 15 episodes on YouTube and there are downloads available from the main website: https://www.kennedy-center.org/mowillems

David Spencer

This new YouTube channel is by children’s book illustrator, David Spencer. You might recognize his work from the book, “The Epic Adventures of Huggie & Stick.” The videos are playful and worth a watch; we’re excited to see how this channel grows!

Bob Ross

Bring back childhood nostalgia with episodes of the soothing “The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross.” The Bob Ross YouTube channel includes over 31 seasons of his hit show and several shorts, too.

Watch Online Art Lessons and How-To Videos

Deep Space Sparkles

Deep Space Sparkles provides a FREE weekly art tutorial on YouTube for kids; the art projects are often inspired by historical and contemporary artists.

Createful Kids

The Createful Kids YouTube channel features videos made by a Mommy and kids team. The videos are step by step, easy to follow and taught by a real art teacher. This appears to be a great resource for long-term homeschooling families, as well as for temporary homeschoolers and parents with kids at home over the summer and holiday breaks.

As a mom with a Masters of Fine Arts, I especially appreciate the children’s art history lessons and projects.
