The more the parents and caregivers make color a salient attribute, and the more that children’s attention is drawn to focusing on colors, the easier is may be for them to learn their colors. Toward that end, I have done a number of activities with my kids that are appropriate for teaching kids their colors.
Drawing has seen something of a renaissance in the last twenty years in the UK. From the Campaign for Drawing to the Drawing Research Network, from the Drawing Room to the Rabley Drawing Centre, we've witnessed a proliferation of passion, effort and energy matched by increased museum exhibitions, dedicated degree courses, professors, publications and conferences.
Drawing develops your kid’s problem solving skills. When drawing, a child is faced with multiple decisions- whether it’s ‘what colour should I use here?’ or ‘How do I draw a animal and connect one part of its body to another?’ All these questions require them to solve problems. Try asking them why they drew certain parts the way they did or why they used certain colours, and see what solutions they came to. It lets their imagination run wild!
The Jerwood Drawing Prize grew in the face of this need, and developed in the wake of the Cleveland International Drawing Biennale that came to an end in 1996 after 23 years, and as the successor project for the nascent Malvern Open Drawing, founded in 1991. The project was a twin-headed opportunity: to facilitate an understanding of current drawing practice; and to provide students with professional experience as part of the curriculum to organise and understand the process of an open exhibition.
