'Captain Underpants' Creator To Host Free Online Drawing Classes For Kids

So you suddenly find yourself stuck at home with your bored, restless, requires-constant-attention-or-they'll-go-berserk children. What now?

You could let them run around the house all day in a blur of utter chaos until they tire themselves out and collapse in the living room. But you should also probably try to fit a little time in for some actual learning, too.

Well, thankfully plenty of places have begun offering free online opportunities for exhausted parents to get even just the tiniest break away from their relentless spawn, and you can rest assured those kiddos are going to be both entertained and educated at the same time.

One children's book author is doing his part to keep your children occupied while also helping to keep their young minds sufficiently stimulated.


Dav Pilkey, the man behind the hit book series "Captain Underpants" and "Dog Man", is lending his time to teaching children how to draw like a comic book artist.
