Artistic Development

5 to 6 years

Children take great pleasure in knowing that their drawings and artwork can express a personal feeling, story, or event. At this stage there is very little concern for visual accuracy when they draw. Attempts to help children draw realistically or color inside the lines can discourage them. The process of creating the artwork and the story behind it is what matters for children. Have them explain their drawing. This builds their confidence and communication skills, both linguistically and artistically.
