Child art and school.
Children paint and draw spontaneously from the first years of their lives. If their inclination to create has not been restrained, they mature in terms of painting in a stereotypical way and in accordance with the development of their mind. They have a living one, creative imagination and high perceptiveness, and thus can easily develop their painting skills. The subjects of their speeches are figures of people and animals, landscapes, interiors and various scenes from life. These themes are expressed and characterized by the child in its own way, while avoiding any technical difficulties. Most of the time, he talks about his experiences in a convincing way.
Parents, who have noticed this kind of interest in their children, most of the time they don't know, what to think, neither does the school, how to respond to this issue. Children's school painting works are usually poorly made. Children are most often required to draw a reconstructive and non-individual drawing, which has nothing to do with creative expression. Every creative effort, and therefore children, only then can it give good results, if it arose from the deep, an inner need to express oneself and expresses a personal attitude to reality. Only in this case an individual concept of the image is created and the work is shaped in a lively and unique way.
The art of a child is created in the same way as in the case of an adult, though the expressions are different. It has the charm of a simple and undistorted childlike nature, and often outweighs the utterances of adults in directness.
parental home, who is not indifferent to this issue, should encourage the child to this work and create favorable conditions for its development, but he should not teach the child”. Growing up, it perceives itself better and better and more. In terms of painting, it matures gradually and expresses itself better and more fully.
Under the influence of the environment, a child's creativity is shaped differently, for example in the countryside, otherwise in the city, but in both cases the child's painting development should not be rushed. You should not want, to prematurely feel and think like an adult. A child must go through the natural stages of its own development from the simplest and more naive forms to the more mature forms. Must alone, through their own effort and in their own way overcome the gradually increasing difficulties.
Wanting to help the child, extreme caution should be exercised. It is hard to guess, what difficulties it is undergoing at a given moment of development, which has already organized observations and found a living form of expression for them, and which they have not yet noticed. It is very difficult to create a bridge of understanding between two such separate worlds, what is the world of experience, feelings and ideas of a child and an adult. It is not easy to reach an agreement in this area between a child, which is just taking shape, and an adult, that has been shaped in a certain way, and often ossified in his patterns of thinking and feeling. And the creativity of each new individual should be created "anew", only in her proper way. Therefore, the child should not be deprived of the possibility of discovering the "new”. It wouldn't be intentional.
