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.
Drawing tutorials of great simplicity as the ones featured by Homesthetics in the link above can help a great deal in this regard. 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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
