Our overarching aim was to affirm the value of drawing, and the reach of the project is more tangible than we could have imagined. We have received phenomenal support from a number of funders, champions and supporters of drawing in our establishment, joining the Jerwood Charitable Foundation family of projects in 2000 and redefining our scope as UK wide. Having collectively raised the game and placed drawing back on the agenda in schools, universities, in teaching and research, galleries and contemporary practices – perhaps it is time to deepen, extend and further evaluate its specific function.
Colour Recognition: Colouring in activities encourages colour awareness. Using different colours gives children an opportunity to explore different combinations and lets them see how they can change the appearance of the picture. It is great also for gaining awareness of the lesser known colours.
One of the first things a child can do is pick up a pencil and start drawing. And as new technologies are becoming much more accessible to children and their families, they bring with them new ways to learn important creative skills. We see drawing as one of the most fundamental of these skills.
With developments in technology, I feel that colouring in activities have taken a bit of a back seat in children’s learning. Colouring in pictures and drawings may seem like a simple task but there are so many learning benefits for children to engage in the act of coloring in. Crayola has cleverly brought these two components together, technology and colouring in with Crayola Color Alive Colouring in Books, taking colouring in to another level with a 4D experience and special effects that will excite and motivate children.
