Creativity is the form of self-expression. All the kids want to be creative; they completely put effort and do whatever activity they will do their own. The ability to be very creative and to express their feelings may reflect and nurture children emotional health.
1. Let your child decide what to print, draw, or build
Kids do not need to be given topics to create. Just provide the materials and let them use their intuition to create. Kids will just happy to explore the materials and to create what is meaningful to the kids. Is your child is stuck and looks to you for getting the direction, try to engage them in a discussion about their life right now.
2. Try to comment on the kid’s art
Avoid compliments as well as judgment in the kid’s art. They may think that you were evaluating their work and found somewhere lacking. Parents should not deliver any positive comments or negative to the kids based on their art. Positive comments may lead to overconfidence and negative comments may lead to de-motivation for the child. The talent of art may result in a notebook printing for them in the future.
3. Avoid imposing the interpretations
Do not impose the interpretation of the child artwork. If your child is good at hard cover bookbinding just motivate and encourage them. Your child may be famous for bookbinding in the future.
4. Provide a plain white paper
If your kid is very much interested in drawing and painting then provide them a plain white paper. If you give a coloring sheet for your kid for drawing and painting the art will not give expression, creativity, or intuition.
5. Correct the mistakes
Resist the impulse to correct the mistake of the child. Do not expect children art to be realistic. The depictions of the child give you invaluable insight into how they perceive the world at the time.
6. Void drawing for them
There is no right or wrong way of drawing anything. Do not draw anything for them or showing how to draw things. They should use the mind and convey their image that is on their mind on the art.
7. Focus on the process
Just focus on the process of the art done by the child and do not worry about the end product or result.
8. Own artistic decisions
Allow your kids to make their own artistic decisions. Instead of giving your opinion to the kids just motivate them to do even better.
9. Express confidence
If you feel difficult for you to comment on your child art, you can express interest and confidence in your child ability to create.
10. Child gets messy
Artist and highly creative people are often viewed as messy. You do not want to worry about paint colors getting mixed up each other or getting spills on the floor if this happens then your child does not feel free to do experiments.
