No interested in art class
Q. My son (age 11) likes to draw and paint, however, he has no interest in participating in an art class.
A. It sounds like you have a true artist on your hands! Like any true artist, your son is probably resistant to the structure of art class. To encourage his interests, make sure that he has easy access to sketch books, pencils, and paints. I encourage my students to keep a tiny sketch book in their pocket, so they can get their ideas on paper quickly. Remind him that every art teacher and every art class is different. He might not enjoy his current art class, but the next one may be a perfect fit. Consider art classes that keep the class size small, so he can have more individualized attention. That might make all the difference!
