One way to take a child is unconventional drawing. Non-traditional methods of drawing can overcome the feeling of fear, weaken the excitement of emotionally disinhibited children. Such techniques are simple in technology, reminiscent of the game and very exciting. When children use unusual materials and tools, they can invent their own compositions, create unusual drawings, and open up a variety of visual techniques. Children learn to think for themselves, decide what method to use to make this or that image, how to make it more expressive. They are happy to draw, do not get tired, they maintain a high performance throughout the time. But most importantly, the use of non-traditional drawing techniques plays an important role in the mental development of a child.
1. Drawing cotton buds. The child puts a little paint on the pieces of the sponge, presses a cotton swab against them and prints patterns on paper from the dots. You can complement images with lines or missing parts.
2. Hand prints. An adult pours a little diluted watercolors or gouaches onto a stack of newspapers. You can dip your palm in the paint and finish the image. Or you can dip the back of your fingers clenched into a fist. Then make an imprint on paper. Dipping your fingers in the paint closer to the knuckles and turning the hand while printing, you can get unusual shapes, which you can optionally finish with a brush.
You can also pour diluted gray gouache into a saucer. Offer the child to paint over the middle and index fingers or the entire palm, press them to the paper. Ask your baby to determine which animal looks like a received print. In case of difficulty, you can tell that this is a bunny. Next, let the child draw a face: eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth. At the bottom of the palm print, attach the paws and tail to the bottom.
In the same way you can draw a fox. To do this, lower the phalanges of the fingers (middle and index) and palm paint over with orange paint. Imagine with your children, try to put your fingers and palm in different ways and you will see what a rich imagination your child has.
3. Printing with plastic cups. The child presses the edges of the cup to the pad with paint and prints it on the paper. To get a print of a different size and color, you need to take another cup and another bowl. Then look at what the images may look like, and paint the necessary details.
4. Cellophane imprint. The child presses cellophane crumpled in a ball to the paint pad. Then the print is applied to the paper. To get a print of a different color, you need to take a bowl with a different paint and pure cellophane. To finish the conceived image, you can use paint and add the necessary details.
5. Printing the bottom of a plastic bottle. The child presses the bottom of the plastic bottle to the paint pad. After it prints on paper. You can put a folded newspaper under the paper for drawing, then the print will be more clear. The necessary details for creating a composition can be drawn with paints or felt-tip pens.
6. Printing with Lego designer details. The child presses the detail of the Lego designer to the paint pad. Then he prints on paper. To make the print more clear, you can put a folded newspaper under the paper. The images are very different: houses, trains, flowers, etc. It depends on the size and shape of the parts.
7. Dumping. The child takes a sheet of paper and using a wide brush wets it with water. After that puts on this sheet several color ink blots. It is necessary to warn the child that if you put blots close to one another, the colors will be mixed. When the paper is dry, the child can finish the image with a thin brush or marker.
8. Drawing clay. On a piece of cardboard, the child draws a normal drawing, then he plucks small pieces from the plasticine bar and spreads it on the drawing with his fingers, without going beyond its borders. Plasticine of different colors mixes easily, so you can create new and unexpected colors. Only when the entire surface is covered with plasticine, both the design and the background, is the work considered finished and decorative. Very beautiful pictures are obtained, from afar they look as if they were painted in oil.
9. Drawing with salt. The child paints a drawing in watercolor. You just need to warn him that you should draw quickly. While the paint has not dried, the baby sprinkles salt on a wet pattern or only a part of it. After drying the paint, the excess salt should be shaken off. The resulting image seems to us rough, voluminous.
The main thing is not to just take the child so that it does not interfere, does not hang out without work. Much more important is to engage him in new, exciting activities that will contribute not only to the development of his creative abilities, but warm, close relationships with his parents.
