Benefits of Directed Drawing

Curious about using our directed drawing videos in your classroom? Here are just a few of the benefits that can come from these activities!

  1. Improved Fine Motor Skills: Directed drawing exercises help students develop the fine motor skills necessary for writing and other activities that require dexterity.
  2. Enhanced Visual-spatial Skills: Directed drawing activities help students develop their visual-spatial skills, which are important for tasks such as reading maps, understanding graphs, and solving math problems.
  3. Improved Confidence: By providing step-by-step instructions, directed drawing helps children understand that they can create something complex and beautiful with their own hands, giving them a sense of accomplishment and confidence.
  4. Creativity Boosted: Although the steps of a directed drawing may be predetermined, our students can still add their own unique touches and personal interpretations to the final product, encouraging creativity and self-expression.
  5. Problem-solving Skill Building: Our directed drawing activities require students to think critically and problem-solve in order to complete the task at hand. This helps to develop important cognitive skills that can be applied to other areas of life.
