Third- Hold their arm and direct it into large circles. Then, let go of their arm and guide their arm into creating lines, circles and marks on the paper. He or she will love the tactile, warm, interaction with you, and be thrilled that there is color on the paper. Fourth- Praise your child, and point to the marks and let them discover that they have created something by themselves. Smiles will abound. Now you are both ready to draw a person! Whether a child is from Asia, Africa, or America, a pre-school child sees a person as a circle with a face. It is universal. The arms radiate from the sides of the circle. The legs sprout from the bottom of the circle. Take their hand and have them feel their eyebrows, and look into a mirror and point out eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, ears, and hair. Have them feel their arms, legs and feet. As a child draws and grows, their person will have more detail. Your child will have more of a body concept. Draw eyebrows. Put their hands on their ears, and help them draw the ears. Ask your child to draw hair. It usually will not be attached to the head. To them, the hair is above the head.
Dont do it! Youre better off picking a name that at first glance has nothing to do with your business than one that the average person cant say without stumbling over his tongue. The reason is simple: if you cant say it you cant remember it much less spell it when needed. And with the coming proliferation of new domain extensions both in Latin Script and Arabic, Cyrillic or whatever, the chances of someone misunderstanding a domain name will increase exponentially. There are plenty of examples of this mistake out there. How many times have you asked someone for their website and theyve told you what it is not once but twice or three times, and youve still left them wondering what it was they had said? Or you left thinking you had it; but when you got to your computer youd either forgotten completely or couldnt get it to render no matter how many likely combinations you tried.
Keep in mind that the level of difficulty of the subject is appropriate for their age and their skill level. This can be difficult when you are working with a number of children of differing ages or when youre working with your own children and they are of multiple skill levels. Please remember never to use competitive words such as wrong, right best and ensure you praise, praise, praise. Even when drawing the same subject, each childs interpretation will ensure a unique piece of artwork every time. After all, how can they be compared, just as De Vinci cant be compared to Monet? If you notice that your child is taking a real interest in art and drawing you may want to get them enrolled in classes so that they can enhance their skills and embrace that aspect of their world. Children who are also experiencing difficulty mastering fine motor skills or displaying poor concentration skills will greatly benefit from these drawing lessons, just be patient. Providing they are not too distracting for the other students and are enjoying their drawing, keep encouraging them and praising them. In the end this will reap wonderful rewards both for the child and the teacher.
After first introducing children to dot to dots, you may want to offer a little supervision. Encourage kids to seek out the next number in the sequence. Its best to draw a straight, even line from one dot to the other, and dont forget to connect that final dot or the image wont be complete! At the same time, dont insist that everything be "just so." Kids need to be able to experiment and be creative, even if it means coloring outside the lines. Dot to dots have many variations, and some are worked using letter sequences alphabetically rather than numbers while some spell words. The skill level needed ranges from preschool-age on up. Sometimes, its immediately obvious what the picture is, while other designs will keep you guessing almost until the final line is drawn.
When undertaking faces aim to teach one feature at a time; the following tip may prove useful. For example, you are learning how to draw eyes, sketch out the facial outline and other features, leaving the eye area blank; make photocopies of this facial sketch, one for each child. With this basic template the students can draw in their own eyes following your instructions. Then they have a completed work which they can color and decorate. The next lesson you can work on another feature, such as the nose. Simple cartooning is great fun for kids of all ages and a great start. Just be mindful not to select too well-known or favorite characters as this can prove discouraging should the outcome not meet their expectations. Manga characters are quite simple, are basically recognizable but also leave much for individual interpretation.
Do not correct your childs first attempt at drawing a person. Give them freedom to explore the visual and tactile experience without your input. Preliminarily, he or she may only draw a couple of lines.Give a lot of praise. Too much interference by you will hurt creativity and confidence. Their person may have only eyes, a dot for the nose and a straight line for the mouth within the circle. You may prompt by saying, "Where are your eyes?" Prompt with the other parts of the body. Cut around the drawing, and hang it up for everyone to see and give your child a hug and praise. Soon, your child will draw himself or herself, and then other people in the family. This is a big day! It is better to buy a blank drawing pad than a coloring book. They will learn to control their hand and fingers to hold the crayon and they can try to color their drawings as they draw, and have more control when they are about five years old. Let them scribble until you see they want to go on to another task. Keep the time short.
