Talking with Kids About Their Art
One of my favorite parts of my job is talking to kids about their artwork. I learn so much about them through their creations. I love watching them work through problems to find creative solutions.
Children's art should not look like an adult completed it. It should reflect the abilities and thought process of the child.
Here are a few tips to help you talk with your child about their artwork:
1. Ask your child to tell about their artwork. Let them explain the imagery or process.
2. Compliment effort and focus instead of simply saying "good job" or "it looks beautiful!"
3. Respond to specific parts of the work, like the use of line, creative colors, detailed background, etc.
4. Guide your child in reworking mistakes. Help them to see that mistakes are opportunities to make the artwork even better.
