Magnum Arts provides quality online cartooning and drawing classes to children ages nine and up through Zoom, with each student learning at his or her own pace. There is no pressure to “keep up” with other students, and classes revolve around each student’s interests and skill level. The emphasis is on self-acceptance, stress reduction, building self-esteem, and socializing (online) with other students, an important part of the experience.
“Drawing has never been fun for him…he is really putting himself out there. I think the socialization is very good for him. By the way you got a rare smile at the end. And after he left the class, he said ‘Wow, that felt good.’ He means drawing and your class. So now, I am a puddle of tears. Thank you for your class today.” -Jennie D.
Magnum Arts has created a standalone drawing class for home-school students, unaffiliated with other home-school co-ops: The ICE Creative Classes program.
Hour-long classes are held online Tuesdays at noon on a regular basis for students ages 9 -11 years old, and parents are absolutely welcome to sit in on the classes.
Cost: $75.00 for a ten week class (which breaks down to a mere $7.50 a class). To register, send an email to email@example.com; PayPal payment can be made using the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
