Depending on where you live, school may be ending for the summer in the next few weeks. Although as a parent, you may be glad to see this crazy time of "distance learning" and Zoom chats coming to an end, it also means more time to fill, especially if your area is not yet opening summer camps and other activities.

Since this pandemic began, many creative people have been sharing ideas for keeping children and teens engaged in learning beyond their digital classrooms. You'll find us on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and our own websites.
I teach art lessons for teens and adults on my Skillshare Channel, but that's a membership site and I know that right now money is tight for many of us. So I'm working on bringing some of my teacher-tested, kid approved art activities to my YouTube Channel, where you can access them at no cost.
The first ones are ready now and more are on the way in the next few weeks. Check out this slideshow to see what's available now! Click here to visit my YouTube Channel to get started! And follow me on Instagram to be the first to know when new tutorials are posted!
If you do try any of these activities with your kids at home, please share them on Instagram with #cboggsart2. I’d love to see what your creative kids have accomplished!
