Artistic Development

2 to 4 years

At this age, children are tactile learners and natural explorers. Children delight at experimenting with paint and clay. They enjoy scribbling with crayons and markers. Over time their scribbles become circles and their circles become symbols for people or animals. As they approach 4, they are more purposeful with what they draw or make.

Eventually children understand that their artwork can convey an idea. They are empowered by this discovery. The best way to support children’s artistic growth is to expose them to a variety of art media and give them ample opportunity to draw, paint, and sculpt.
