What's Inside Kids Art Spot

Art videos for kids can help children easily learn new techniques, supporting busy families and a variety of learning styles.  You can find hundreds of easy-to-follow art videos on Kids Art Spot, our online membership portal for creative families.

Video art tutorials can make it so much easier (and less stressful!) for families to embrace art at home.


Because video can be a powerful learning tool for all ages, shortening learning curves, and incorporating multi-media in a way that embraces a variety of learning styles.

Videos can take the pressure off of parents who might feel overwhelmed by the idea of “teaching” art to their kids.  Plus, providing children with a bit of guidance (apart from their parents) can encourage independence and help develop problem-solving skills.  What’s not to love?

Raised salt painting has been one of our favorite art activities since forever. In fact, it’s on our list of The Best Art Ideas for Kids.  And it’s definitely a project that kids can do on their own with a little guidance.

In this video, we walk kids through the raised salt painting art activity from set-up to clean-up:

So, bring your kids over to watch this video and invite them to do raised salt painting!

The Power of Art Videos for Kids

As I’m sure you know, video can be an amazing instructional tool—appealing to a range of learning styles and using visual and auditory cues to help kids and families learn new things. Videos work especially well for learning art activities and techniques.

Since 2018, we’ve been building a library of these kids’ art videos inside of the KIDS ART SPOT — our online art club for kids and their families.

Our videos all demonstrate a fun art activity or technique, from homemade puffy paint that gets even puffier as it dries (so incredibly cool!), to nature suncatchers, marble painting, styrofoam printmaking, drawing with tape, double-doodle drawing, scribble challenge drawing, and so much more!  In fact, our video library now includes over 250 step-by-step tutorials for all kinds of fun and open-ended art projects.

Each video makes it easy and fun for kids to try a new art activity or learn a new technique, all while encouraging experimentation and creativity.

Our goal is to make it totally simple and stress-free for you to have a more artful home.


These art tutorial videos are all part of our online art club for kids, Kids Art Spot.

The KIDS ART SPOT makes kids art easier and more fun to incorporate into your family life through art tutorial videos and a library of drawing prompts and printables that you can access any time.
