Teaching Children How to Appreciate Art

November 6th, 2012 / / categories: Learn to Appreciate /

For parents or even teachers who are not naturally born artists, teaching children how to appreciate art can be very frustrating. However, guided by these steps, even the non-artists will gain confidence in teaching art appreciation and qould be able to make the learning process as easy as eating peanuts.

Teaching the Fundamentals

In order to be successful in teaching art appreciation, one must begin by developing the necessary set of skills to learn the basics of arts such as shapes, lines, colors, and perspectives. A teacher or a parentmust also employ useful resources such as books in order to guide the children in their way towards appreciating art. One perfect resource would be the modern-day classic book of Mona Brookes, “Drawing with Children: A Creative Method for Adult Beginners.” The author starts her instructional book by presenting photos of the basic art grammar such as curved lines, straight lines, angled lines, dots, and circles. Learning how to contruct these bits and pieces that make up an entire artwork will help you in you task. You might learn how to draw you own artwork yourself as well.

Developing the Skills

Upon identifying and learning the fundamental of art, it is ideal to introduce to the kids various artworks made by real and prominent artists. In such way, students will also be able to appreciate history along with the learning process and this will develop a certain urge within them to emulate the famous artists.

Familiarizing the Children with Famous Artworks

In this part, an educator must reproduce works of renowned artists to sow seeds of familiarity among the students. This is a vital precursor to genuine appreciation of art. Never underestimate the powerful effect of mere ornamentation of masterpieces in the house. The educator should also engage the students in out-of-the-school activities such as exposure trips to various art galleries, exhibits, and museums. Always associate art to your everyday life so as to make art highly applicable even to the most trivial things sich as watching television shows.

Understanding the Lives of the Artists

Finally, after developing all the necessary skills, it is also equally important as everything else to expose the children tothe life of the actual artists, the masterpieces they made, and their context of art and culture. This will help the students understand how it is to be an artist and what art truly means, despite how subjective and relative art is in reality.
