This year at Halloween my 4 year old grandsons were obsessed with Frankenstein, so when it was grandma time, it was Frankenstein drawing time. This is a really big deal. Drawing him repeatedly, helped them internalize the image, making it part of their permanent visual vocabulary.
I’ve got a great way for your children to learn how to draw while giving you a few minutes to finish up those last minute holiday tasks! These books also have great things for you on why the arts are so important to a child’s development, how it improves their performance in the classroom and the value of building basic art skills. You can use these books for one child – or with a group.
Art has special significance to visual-spatial learners, not because they will grow up to be professional artists, but because it is a visual, tactile medium that meets children in their learning need. Young Rembrandts brings even more value to the visual tactile learner, by intentionally using art to develop learning skills that are essential to all young children.
