My son loves to paint. And I support him in this. After all, it is much more interesting to paint with paints than with pencils or felt-tip pens. Here you have some water, which children love so much, and paints in different jars, in which you can run a brush, in general, the process itself is fascinating, not to mention the result.
We started to paint with colors somewhere in a year and a half. Method poke. I made the drawing tool myself, winding a piece of foam rubber on the tip of an unnecessary ballpoint pen. I already wrote about this topic.
Then she learned that such brushes are sold, and, of different sizes. But I think buying them is optional. The price is rather big – 70 rubles a piece, and they are used for long.
I myself loved to draw as a child. But not paints, and pencils. I discovered the beauty of drawing colors when my eldest daughter studied at the Children’s Art School.
Together with my daughter, we learned about the many ways of applying paint, how to transfer hue, about mixing paints, about the difference in handling different types of paints and much more. A two-year-old child does not need this mass of knowledge.
The main thing to teach him is:
1. Wash the brush. At first, the son rinsed the brush, as they say, and in the case, and not in the case. In order that he did not immediately mix all the colors in the jars, I put all the paints in his hands in piles a little. Spread a little water.
2. Lead the lines without pressing on the paper. This turned out to be not so simple, but now, after being shown to him several times, the son already understood that it was possible not to press.
3. Mix paint. If a child knows colors, he will already be interested to see how, for example, green and yellow are obtained from yellow and blue paint, orange from red and yellow, blue from white and white
Start, of course, better with gouache. It is easier to handle, colors are brighter, more vibrant than those of watercolor. It is better to take the brushes at first unpretentious, inexpensive, since at first your young Picasso will still be hard on her.
The most unpretentious drawings: the sun, flower, house, cloud and rain from it, more precisely, their contours, draw a child, and he already let him try to paint them with the same color. By the way, the rain from the clouds, or the sun’s rays, the baby can try to draw himself.
You can also draw different geometric shapes in different colors and let them paint over them.
Well, and it is necessary to allow the child from the heart to put the colors on the paper on paper or drawing sheet. Let him observe what imprints a brush leaves, how paints dry up, how one color overlaps another, in a word, the world of visual art learns.
But most importantly, the child should be interested in this.
Do you think it matters what the child draws?
