40 Art and Drawing Prompts for Kids + Adults: Ideas from Around the World

Get Your Creative Ideas Flowing!

I’ve been a public school teacher for 15 years (yay, high school and middle school!), and though I’m technically labeled an English or ELA instructor, I also consider myself an art teacher.

What makes me an art teacher, you ask? Each and every day, and in any project in my “English class,” I infuse visual and creative expression, including art and drawing prompts and ideas. Why, I’m even a cartoonist, myself! I know the freedom and happiness that come from artistic expression for both kids and adults, and the dejection that neglecting it breeds.

In addition to teaching and making creative drawings, I’m also a traveler. This means that in the past 10 years of running this site, I’ve amassed some perfect photos and articles for art prompts, craft projects, and drawing inspiration.
