Part Mr. Rogers, part Bob Ross, part jumpy-castle party, DrawTogether is an educational drawing universe that grows kid’s creativity, curiosity and confidence through the simple, joyful act of art-making.
Since it’s launch during the pandemic, DrawTogether has attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers from around the world, all excited to draw with host and #1 NYT-Bestelling illustrator (plus social worker and professional goofball) Wendy MacNaughton – aka “WendyMac.”
DrawTogether’s participatory videos, interactive podcasts and hands-on activities teach kids the fundamentals of drawing and art while growing their emotional self-awareness, creativity and confidence. Kids get a big boost of growth-mindset while having silly, joyful, purposeful fun. Kids learn along to Wendy’s ebullient “no mistakes in art” instruction and come away with a finished drawing and sense of pride and accomplishment. Finally some screen time that contributes to a kid’s emotional and creative well-being.
The DrawTogether Classrooms (a fiscally sponsored 501(c)3) offers educators adaptable, customizable tools to help them bring the benefits of DrawTogether into their learning environments. DrawTogether Classrooms offers educators a proven, standards-based program that supports more arts and SEL in the classroom, homeschools, libraries, community centers and beyond. Program includes translations into Spanish and Chinese languages, ongoing community conversation and personalized support. And it’s free.
“(My son) used to be afraid to draw something that he didn't already know he could draw — and when he made a mistake, he would totally shut down. Since your lessons, he is much more open, and when he makes a "mistake" he just says, "That's OK!" … I am grateful for the changes I have seen in my son.”
“You are the perfect teacher for my 8 year old daughter who thinks her art has to be perfect (and never is, in her eyes.) She has relaxed so much with you and just TRIED things with your encouragement.”
“We love your class. It’s the only thing Hugo pays attention to. We laugh away as you dance with the pencil and more. You are bringing joy to 1000s of people of all ages.”
“My seven-year-old usually can’t sit still for five minutes. But he draws for the whole 30 minutes.”
