Teaching Art to Children

Like other subjects, teaching arts to the children are interesting and fun. The reason for this is that most of the children love to learn with arts. Most of the children do like drawing different kinds of objects that they saw; they like colors and many other art media while they are playing.

To enhance their learning in Art you should make art relate to children. To do this, one method is to apply the art related to kids cultural backgrounds such as creating some figures or drawing that are related to the kid’s native culture. Applying Art to the culture of the kids could create appreciation to them considering that they learn first with their culture through their experiences.

It is also good to consider teaching the basics of the principles and elements of the Art. These basic elements and principles include the basic knowledge of the line, the shape, the color, the balance, the harmony, the variety, the contrast as well as the pattern in design.

Even in their young minds, they need to know these things but in a more simple and most basic ways as possible. Doing these may help the young minds of the children in appreciating and understanding the intricacy of Art.

It is also considered to try to introduce to them some of the known personalities in the field of Art such as Leonardo, Michael Angelo, Donatello, Rafael or Van Gogh and many others, as well as the artists’ works and life experiences. With this they might be inspired with the success of these famous artists in their career in the field of Arts

Another consideration is to relate or incorporate Art to the other subjects such as history, mathematics, sciences, or history and language and much more. This will enable children to learn some other field of knowledge while learning the field of arts.

It is very good to educate the children and introduce Art while they are still young. Doing this will develop their interest as well as their potential talent in Art. This will allow them to learn and appreciate the beauty in nature and on the things around them allowing them to cherish the beauty of the world that God had created.

It is really a good idea to teach the children with arts while they are still young; as they have more time to develop their potential talents in the field of arts...

I agree, art should be introduced at a early age. I have been blessed to have two kids that have the same love for art, as I do. They have since they were knee high to a grasshopper. Now that I am a Grammy, I have already started with my grandson. He is 1 years old. Now that our kids have moved on their own and we have a huge basement, I plan on making most of it into a art studio. How much fun is that. Nice read. Please listen to Mark, he has helped me so much and still does. Before Mark started to help me, I couldn't write worth a hill of beans. Thank you for sharing.:)
