Another great holiday paint event! One of the things we pride ourselves in at Key to My Art, is that we do not trace and we never use pre-drawn canvas! Color by number? You can do that at home! Your child is coming here to learn!
These paintings may not be "perfect" (is anything ever perfect??), but they were drawn/painted by each child on their OWN!
Sometimes, with little artists (under 5), we will give extra guidance, but really, your child is doing this on their own!
Please remember to always provide positive feedback to your child. I know sometimes you get a really hard piece of work to figure out. There is ALWAYS something positive to say. Even if it looks like a mess to you, they put their effort into it. They tried!
I don't know who I'm preaching to here, all of our parents at Key to My Art are amazing and encouraging!
Some great things to say/ask your child when they present their work to you are:
"Tell me about your work."
"Can you explain how you made this?"
"What would you do differently next time?"
"What do you like about your work?"
If anyone has a question about how to encourage their children about their art making, feel free to contact us!
