Colouring in has a crucial place in a child development and can easily be incorporated into a child’s day. It provides an opportunity to practice and develop many skills such as concentration, fine motor and coordination for early writing skills and correct finger grip.
Colouring in will encourage wellbeing and mindfulness in all ages, an opportunity to relax and take time away from the stressful challenges of covid, homeschooling and working from home.
My classes focus on a famous artist or a masterpieces. I use a variety of materials each class to teach different techniques; an approach that enhances a child’s ability to communicate and express themselves. When children have the opportunity to hold a pencil or paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve and their imagination can go wild. Collecting materials, touching different textures and looking at colours will help children explore the world around them. Different shapes and patterns will introduce the child to basic maths and memory skills, while producing wonderful art and crafts. When children experiment with materials, such as mixing paint colours, they become exposed to a world of science and creativity. Most importantly, children will feel proud of their art achievements and new skills, which boosts their self-confidence.
Like Picasso said ‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up’.
