Meet the Teacher
Daniel Grissom, M.A.
With fifteen years of experience teaching in schools around the world, Daniel knows what it takes to nurture a child's imagination, talents, and unique, creative voice. He has taught over 2000 students in his online classes within the last two years, and he loves sharing his creative passions.
He created Kids Cartoon Academy to ensure that other children don't abandon their inner, creative child as they grow up, as he once did. It was only as an adult that he rediscovered his love of art and it changed his life. So as a career educator, he designed an academy to help other children nurture their most creative, authentic selves as they maneuver through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood. With a wide and varied experience as a classroom teacher, he uses scientifically proven methods to create a fun and engaging classroom that invites students to deep learning and transformative results.
When he's not teaching, you'll find him drawing (of course), reading, watching sports, smoking barbecue, traveling, or being silly with his wife and two daughters.
STOP WASTING YOUR TIME ON YOUTUBE LOOKING FOR ART TUTORIALS
I teach kids the drawing skills they need using the characters they love. We cover the art essentials for both beginners and advanced students. I have over a decade of experience in classrooms around the world.
STOP STRESSING ABOUT HOW YOUR CHILD SPENDS THEIR SCREENTIME
My classes are kid-friendly, age-appropriate, and fully engaging. All you need is a device with an internet connection and Zoom. Your child will be busy creating, not just consuming like most people do with their screens.
All you need for my classes is paper,
a pencil, an eraser, and a black marker or pen (Sharpies work great).
Coloring utensils (colored pencils or markers) are optional.
No mess and no stress!
"Daniel is much more than an art teacher. He has ignited a passion in my son that burns bright. Above all else though, Daniel has helped him to recognize his worth and to believe in himself once again."
-parent Lindsey Reid
