Drawing is not something that should be confined to art lessons – it’s a skill that can play a role in many different subject areas in school education, and later on in the workplace. For high school students, drawing can be incorporated into learning in many ways, including visual mapping, reflective thinking, organising and presenting information, and a way of communication that can transcend language barriers.
Improve Focus and Hand-Eye Coordination – The act of holding crayons, choosing colors, coloring different characters, and even sharpening crayons can all help with cultivating strong hand-eye coordination in preschool-aged children. Coloring books require children to color within a specified area which will help them as they develop their hand-eye coordination.
Realistic stage (9-12 years): Children begin to focus on detail and realistic features in their drawings. They are conscious of their peers and the level of detail in their drawings. Pseudo-naturalistic stage (12-14 years): Children begin to focus on the final product, on whether the image looks good and is pleasing to peers and parents. They begin to have an understanding of three-dimensional space in their drawings. Students can often be displeased with the outcome.
This isn’t an esoteric theory; we’ve seen the results firsthand at Adventure to Fitness. Our primary focus has always been animated videos that take kids on adventures around the world or throughout history. During the shows, we get kids moving and introduce educational material that’s relevant to the particular episode. As we started talked with the thousands of teachers using our program, we noticed that many were following our videos with coloring or drawing to give kids a break after the physical activity, while reinforcing the learning from a particular episode.
