ART AND CHILD !


Art plays an important role in the early childhood development.  As Friedrich Froebel father of kindergarten said, those young children should be involved in both making their own art and enjoying the art of others.

 Kids often have a blast painting with mix of colours, smear paint on paper, sprinkle glitter around and instead of encouraging; the mother yells and discourages the child as to what a mess the child has done! But letting and allowing kids to enjoy the process of creation can reap big rewards in the long run.

Fostering creativity increases the child’s chances of becoming the next great artist. As a parent we are helping him develop mentally, socially and emotionally. Kids manipulate with a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. By counting pieces and colours, they learn the basics of math. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. Here are few steps how we can inspire creativity in our children:

1. Do not mind but be prepared of the mess.

2. Avoid directing the child what to make and how to colour or paint, let him choose instead

3. Encourage child’s imagination; ask them what have they made?  Did they enjoy making it?

4. Appreciate the piece of art, do not suggest additions or changes in what the kid has drawn and painted. It’s very important for the child to feel that the creation is the best, even if it’s a dot on the page.  

As children grow and develop, their art-making activities move beyond exploring with their senses. Children begin to represent real objects, events, and feelings in their artwork. Drawing, in particular, becomes an activity that allows them to symbolize and express what they know and feel.
