Looking for our membership club?

You are currently on the site which features lots of free art activity ideas for kids (I hope you are enjoying them!) HOWEVER, if you are looking for more detailed art lesson plans, drawing lessons, printables, sketchbook starters (and more) provided monthly, you will LOVE The KinderArt Club – a membership portal designed for parents, homeschoolers, classroom art teachers and studio instructors.

Inside the club you will find hundreds of printable PDF art lessons designed to work in small or large group settings, with a range of ages (from 5 to 12 years).

Get creative teaching kids at home, instructing students in a classroom, leading workshops in a studio, or sharing online, as you explore artists, art periods, science, nature, history, cultures and themes, with creativity and flexibility in mind.

“Over the years I’ve asked my kids to go draw or color and the response is often “I don’t know what to draw!” Problem solved!

~Sharon Taylor, Parent

I think Andrea has done a great thing with this book—art teachers everywhere should get one. And it would make a great gift for the artistic older child in your life!

What Age/Grade Do You Teach?

 We can direct you to our favourite lessons for each level.






Daughter/mother team Andrea Mulder-Slater and Jantje Blokhuis-Mulder, created KinderArt® in 1997 and The KinderArt® Club in 2018.

It is designed for art teachers, classroom teachers, homeschoolers, studio owners, after-school program directors, future teachers, college students, and curious parents who want to enrich their children’s artistic lives at home.

Whether you have been teaching art for years, or you have no idea where to begin, KinderArt® can make you a STAR in the art room.
