We have been busy creating some online art tutorials that are fun for the whole family! We hope you will try them out as all of these projects can be done with common items you have at home.

Let’s Draw Piko with Mr. Darin (Preschool through Elementary). Our friend Darin Hajime of Shorebird Creative wrote and illustrated a book called Piko’s Busy Day! Here we have two videos for you to enjoy: Piko’s Busy Day, in which Darin’s daughter reads his book for your enjoyment, and Let’s Draw Piko, in which Darin demonstrates his illustration process. Although Darin uses an app to illustrate, you can follow along and learn some hand drawing basics with him.
