Teach Painting For Children Of 4-5 Years

Teaching painting to children ranging 5-6 years is crazy, fun and fulfilling. If you are a painter by yourself and determined to pass on this creative skill to the tender minds, then the following tips will definitely come handy-
1.    Don’t put much emphasis on suppliesWhen you are teaching kids that little of 5-6 years, you must it do it in a fun and entertaining way. Apart from the basic color palette, multiple numbers of backpacks for kids, brushes and paper sheets- you don’t need anything else much. The emphasis must be on the learning and enjoying the art rather than the nitty-gritty.
2.    Pick up fun and exciting subjectsChoosing fun subjects are absolutely necessary in your art class for children. It’s as crucial as having the rainwear and other art supplies in place for each child. First draw multiple figures of animals, flowers or fruit basket on the white board and tell the children to copy that on their sheets/canvasses. You must voluntarily do commit some mistakes while painting and then rectifying it, so that the children learn it from you.
3.    Imply ‘no waste’ rule‘No waste’ rule means the children are not allowed to throw away unused papers or destroy some of the colors unnecessarily. Even if there is some residue once the art class is wrapped up, tell the children to save the paper scraps or the unused paint so that they can make beautiful art pieces using them, in the next class. The left over painted papers can be used in the following ways-
•    Creating pretty and colorful gift wrappers.•    Funny shapes of animals or fruits that can be pasted in the scrapbook.•    Using that paper to cover up personal books or making small DIY projects with them.
4.    Teach them to clear the messWhether you are teaching them in a classroom or inside your own house, you should always teach them the importance to clean up the mess once the class is over. 4-5 years old kids are still so small to follow your instructions properly, so make the cleanup process fun for them. Keep some wet wash cloths and rug handy at the teaching spot. Tell children through a funny song or rhyme to put the individual items in place- whether it’s the color palette, canvas or brush. Show them how to scrub the paint-drops on the table patiently and surely they will do the same in the follow day. This will eventually help the children to grow up into a self-sufficient individual, alongside learning how to make the most of the waste materials. Allow your child to take part in the workshops too, if you want to encourage this habit.
