Brilliant Ways Through Which Drawing Influences the Creativity of the Child

It is known that for centuries art has been an important factor in the well-being of the human mind and multiple studies have shown that drawing and coloring can have a great impact on the child’s natural development, its presence in the schools being very important. It`s worth noting that in classes today art studies are not present world-wide, they`re more of an option. Art encourages the mind of the young student to develop important life skills indirectly. Through simple, beautiful cool and fun things to draw that can be found all around us we can now help them to improve his physical and cognitive development whilst encouraging social interaction, creativity, autonomy and confidence.

The Impact of Artsy Actions in Child Development
The creativity of the little one will be greatly encouraged through artistic endeavors but the benefits are so much more than that, throw a glance over the following ideas and find out.

Improve and Develop Motor Skills
Scribbling, drawing and sketching alike do help the children embrace their creativity and imagination, encouraging their dreams thus creating a very positive environment for them. The whole suite of actions that involve motion though will help them with more than that, holding the pencil or the paintbrush and using them helps them develop their fine motor skill. This improves with practice and naturally, at a certain point, reaches perfection, imagination being the only one that dictates the terms on the piece of paper then.


Sketching and Drawing as Foundation for Language Skills
At an early age and stage pretty much any gesture that the little one makes on paper will be accompanied by a story, by an explication and an association with the item by which he was inspired. This will help him develop his language skills, it will help them learn shapes, colors and in time even the ability to follow step by step processes by his own. Make sure you`re there to help him in these endeavors.

Decision Making Skills
Art is powerful. Beyond coloring and drawing the performing arts have an immense role to play in the decision making process. The child learns what to choose in terms of crayons, paper, what to choose from multiple sources of inspiration and how to match these till he`s satisfied. The association between cause and effect is also relevant; by noticing how a different color influences the drawing he can make changes that in the long run will greatly help him despite their un-important nature at this stage.

Learn to Conceptualize and Break Down Shapes
From an early age children present interest in resembling a reality in their drawings, a children of only three years old that draws a lot will, at a certain point, draw his family, all aligned, made from circles and simply lines, conceptualized, ready to go on the fridge. This simple connection between head and body realized through circle and lines creates an important connection between the little one`s imagination and reality and that is the crucial moment in which the act should be cherished and embraced with love encouragement, affection.

It is important to stay by his side, draw with the child, help him see the difference, help him power through. Serve his appetite for art and you`ll manage to boost his imagination beyond belief.
Everything is simple, nothing is overwhelming.


Tips and Tricks
Encouraging the young artist in every child is very important. The following tips and tricks should help in this regard.

Do not critique at all. No critique is allowed as it can kill their creativity swiftly. Communication is key; ask them questions in a friendly chatty manner to surface the true intention of the drawing, he or she will be glad to tell you everything about it, be patient.

Encouragement is the key to confidence. In any attempt no matter how small, encourage them to express themselves.

Always be prepared for their creative juices. You never know when they`ll want their crayons to draw something pretty, always have a small pack of coloring, drawing utensils on you.

If they decide that the furniture might become an ideal canvas do have patience with the little ones, a new art medium might be far more valuable than a piece of furniture. To avoid this make sure that there is always a new way to draw, to color, children do get bored easily. In this regard chalkboard or an immense white wallpaper can be great additions to one`s home.

 Drawing is crucial for the little one and along with coloring and painting canvasses the triumph of the children`s imagination can be secured. Be a part of his little universe and encourage all his artistic endeavors, it will mean the world to him.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
