Drawing Is the Foundation of ART

Drawing for Little Kids...

Drawing is a natural activity for young children to engage in spontaneously. If you have an area set up as an art corner, it is wonderful to have paper and drawing materials readily available for children to use. Store pencils, crayons, oil pastels, and china markers add kid height so they can help themselves when the mood strikes.
Taking a walk outdoors, exploring a garden or Farm, or visiting a city park will open up a treasure box of new ideas for drawing. Even for the busiest Child, sitting quietly to notice what's crawling in the grass or what the tree bark of a tree feels like can be a memorable experience. Even on the gloomiest of days, and adventure can be found around your home – in an attic, a toolbox, or when peeling an orange. Helping children to look more closely at the world can be an adventure, a fun way to slow down and, for a moment, step away from our busy lives.
