Today we’d like to introduce you to another of Rio Grande Educational Collaborative’s key enrichment partners, Born to Draw. Created by a teacher with more than 20 years’ experience teaching art to kids, this program gives children the opportunity to learn creative expression along with techniques of drawing and painting.

Because arts programs are often the first thing to go when funding is cut in schools, RGEC believes this is a chance for kids to learn about art and how to use its various tools for self-expression. Born to Draw meets the criteria for our E-CUBED method by providing kids with an opportunity to learn new things about art and themselves (Education) while exploring new ideas and activities (Exploration) in a multi-faceted learning environment (Enrichment). 

“Learning about art is fun for kids, but also helps them get to know their own talents and abilities.”

More than just an arts and crafts activity, Born to Draw teaches kids real art-based skills. The program includes teaching the proper use of colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, and other drawing basics. Children receive an introduction to color theory, texture, scale, composition, and placement. Learning about art is fun for kids, but also helps them get to know their own talents and abilities. These lessons also form a foundation for future learning in computer-generated art and design.

At RGEC, we believe that kids shouldn’t have to miss out on enriched learning opportunities because of school budget cuts. By collaborating with programs like Born to Draw, RGEC offers children a chance to try new things and learn about art.
