It is important to respect the spontaneity and naturalness of children. In these early stages of the drawings, it is advisable not to correct them or impose rules or drawing techniques. In addition to the pencil, the child can draw and paint with crayon, felt-tip pens, and even finger paint. Children's drawing must be expressed freely and not as an obligation. Don't stop your child's creativity.
Censorship will only limit your creativity at this stage. Almost all children's ideas can be expressed in their drawings. The graphic and plastic activities represent an authentic language for children. They will teach them to develop their motor skills, give them more freedom of expression and enrich their world. Contact with different materials will stimulate your ideas and expressiveness.
When there is a child's special interest in drawing, you can guide him about some techniques, offering him different materials to try. Technique, as far as instrumental mastery is concerned, need not be taught. It is acquired with practice and experience. The child who likes to draw a lot will be attracted to other materials every time, and thus he will grow up in this magical world that is drawing. Know some materials:
- Crayon: due to its comfortable handling, it is the ideal pencil for children's first scribbles. You can find wax pencil in different shapes, with fine or rounded tips and in all colors.
-Chalks: it is a soft, light material and it breaks easily. Therefore, it demands some skill in children to use it. Normally from the age of two it is interesting that you offer some chalk and a blackboard to the child. It will help you control the intensity of your stroke.
-Felt pens: in different colors and thicknesses, they are ideal for lines and contours, and can also be used on any type of paper. It allows to control muscle pressure, develop coordination and exercise a sense of responsibility. It is difficult to erase and therefore requires more responsibility.
-Tempera: with a brush or finger, it is great fun for children to paint with tempera. They allow them to create a multitude of effects, acquire new coordination movements, exert different pressures of the stroke, etc. By hand painting, the child will be creating a physical and direct interaction with the material, will enjoy senses such as touch and smell, and will enhance their sense of exploration.
-Paper: paper is as important as pencils. Its format, size or color will determine the limits of the children in terms of drawing; and the texture will determine the type of pencil the child will use. In any case, children will always react in different ways depending on the type of material they use.
When the child is encouraged to draw, it is helping him to develop his perception, emotion and intelligence. The child will have more means of expressing himself and will gain more practice and experiences. The creative potential that a child has is enormous but this is not always recognized or offered the opportunity to put it into practice.
A good way to encourage your child to draw is by creating a space, a corner to hang their drawings. Invite him to create a space for an exhibition of his favorite drawings. So when friends and family come, they can "visit" the exhibition. The corner can be in a cork box, on the bedroom closet door, in the back frame of the front door of the house or anywhere else.
