WHY introduce FINE ART to CHILDREN?

Observation is one of the greatest skills children develop as they explore the world through their visual sense and ART lets them see beyond the obvious! ART is beautiful. ART is aesthetic. ART is educational! Little people are like sponges! Their job is to OBSERVE, INTERPRET, and INTERNALIZE! When oral skills are limited, especially at a young age, more than ever little learners are relying on other senses such as VISUAL and TACTILE! FINE ART reproductions are a glorious gateway between the history, creative expression, and language and arts!

WHY START WITH IMPRESSIONISM?

“I would like to paint the way a bird sings,” said Claude Monet, the father of impressionism, who was a master of observation. Impressionists were fascinated by nature, just like our children are! Have you ever noticed your wobbly toddler stopping and picking up in fascination a tiny leaf? Or, squatting down and waiting patiently until the ladybug crosses the road. Have you seen their eyes when they gaze at the clouds or a glorious sunset or the tranquility of the lake? The mind, being free and without reservations is perceiving the BEAUTY of NOW without the worry of yesterday or the anticipation of tomorrow! Impressionist artists, similar to little people, live in the NOW, capturing the play of light, the effects of the changing seasons, and lighting at different times of the day. The thing I love about exploring Impressionist art with kids is the instantaneous nature of the art. Impressionists wanted to capture the feeling of a moment, so they worked quickly, intuitively, spontaneously. Their colors are bright. Their compositions are dynamic. Impressionist art is fun! Moreover, I hope the reproductions in this October Landscape Activity pack will spark their own creativity! When children are making art inspired by the Impressionists, there’s no need for them to make a “realistic” looking painting. It’s ok for things to be sketchy, gestural, and imperfect. Art does NOT need to be perfect! It has to be from the HEART!

WHY LANDSCAPE?

There are 3 TYPES of PAINTING:

  • A portrait ~ a picture of a person, usually of a person’s face (e.g. Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa).
  • A landscape ~ a picture of natural scenery (e.g. Alfred Sisley or Claude Monet’s haystack).
  • Still life ~ a picture of an inanimate object or of an object that does not move (e.g. Paul Cézanne’s fruits paintings.) These can also be works of art depicting typically commonplace objects which are either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc.)

LANDSCAPE is nature in its pristine condition, beautiful and inviting. No one ever had been repulsed by nature. Portraits, on the other hand, although could be relatable, can depict a face, or convey a feeling that a child might misinterpret. So, I personally, prefer to start with LANDSCAPE reproductions with young children.

I hope you enjoy this Autumn-Inspired Fine Arts pack! If you do, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
