This is my second article for the Feb. Art Projects For Toddlers section of the blog. My first article was the Art Project For Toddlers article that was the inspiration for the entire idea. You can read that here. I hope it helps you out with your kids and helps you incorporate art into your daily life.
Most kids are born with an innate artistic streak. They want to paint because they want to draw. They want to draw because they want to paint. They want to paint because they want to be creative. But like all natural gifts, a child can only develop so much before their creativity becomes dulled. The same goes for artists.
We can help you get your kid started by offering them lots of good quality wallpapers and wall art. Then we can help them develop their eye for composition and color by showing them how to draw, paint, or sculpt. We can also help them develop an interest in drawing and painting, which can be an extension of their artistic talent. For this reason, we are also an art studio for children.
We have created a free website for art workshops for kids with lots of great art materials. Click the link here to check it out.
You may remember a few weeks ago I mentioned my thoughts on the state of the digital art scene, specifically the lack of good quality wallpapers on the web. Well, we just launched an art studio on our website for kids called februaryart.com, where we offer a series of art workshops for toddlers ages 3 to 10. All of the art workshops will be free, and you can choose from a variety of activities ranging from drawing to painting to sculpting.
The workshop schedule is here. You can check out the art studio now. Please note, these classes are not for parents or guardians. If you are the type who likes to hold your children while you practice, that’s fine, but you’ll need to register with your local school district to take them. They’re not for anyone who has a ton of art in their home already.
I think its important to realize that the art work you create for your children will be appreciated by other humans. Even if they don’t know you, they will understand that you have created something that others can use and that is really valuable. So as an art teacher, be sure to create and share your work with your students so they feel it is important to have art in their own homes.
Also, remember that art that is used in public places should be safe and in keeping with the theme of the space. If you see a child using a painting in front of a public place, they should not be able to use the painting for something else. It’s important for you to be involved in the creation process because you are the one who will be responsible for the art. If you are not involved in it, it will go to waste.
It was interesting that people seemed to appreciate the art projects that teachers were making with kids. Some people said they liked how they made art with their students. Others said they felt they were making an effort to encourage their students to make more art. Either way, you must try to ensure that your art projects are safe, interesting, and make your students feel proud to be taking part.
Art projects are fun and can help motivate your students to make art. At the end of the day though, your art projects should be fun, safe, and useful. That’s not an easy task, because most art projects you see are made for fun and are not necessarily safe. The good news is though, that there’s a lot of great art projects for kids out there, so take a look at them, and even if you don’t like art projects, try them.
