One of my favorite YouTubers is Sarah Cray. On her channel, Let’s Make Art, she has a playlist dedicated to teaching kids how to paint animals—including dinosaurs and dragonflies. Along the way, she explains color mixing and other basic watercolor techniques. All you need is a watercolor set and paintbrush, paper, and the ability to draw or print your own outlines.
