Looking for a way to add variety to your child’s art curriculum? Imagine having a professional artist come into your home to keep the kids entertained for a little while. The Library of Congress is collaborating with Scholastic and Captain Underpants and Dog Man author Dav Pilkey to create weekly video drawing lessons for kids.

Beginning Apr. 1, free activities will be available online including how-to-draw demonstrations, engaging read-alouds and  resources from the Library’s collections. Additional videos and content will be shared periodically throughout the week and will feature downloadable activities, conversations about books and creativity, and tips for kids and families to create their own characters and act out scenes from Pilkey’s Dog Man book series.

Dav Pilkey at Home will feature new video content on Fri. mornings at 8 a.m. EST on social media channels and the websites of the Library and Scholastic.
