Our amazing Verizon volunteers supplied so many great stories last time, we are now hoping to now see your artistic sides! We seek to collect 50 videos of volunteers teaching our youth how to create a piece of VISUAL art. If you are ready to embrace your inner Bob Ross, please check out the details below on how to get involved. Our professional mentors "Friends" will share these videos with our youth and try to replicate your creations.
See some already great works of art by our youth at the bottom of the page.
Record yourself teaching our kiddos how to paint or draw something.
Step 1 - Select a medium and an inspiration
Select a medium that is great for youth between the ages of 4-8 (watercolors, acrylic paint, color pencils)
Pick your inspiration - an object in your home, a landscape or even a self portrait
The video (lesson) should be under 10 minutes
Step 2 - Record the lesson
Find a quiet and well lit place to record your lesson. We find the best setup is having your camera setup above to show your process. See a great YouTube example at the bottom of the page.
Start your recording with a brief introduction (hello).
