Artistic creation, such as drawing and handcraft, can unleash the unlimited potential of a child. Don’t look down upon these lines, shapes, and colors. They can sufficiently reveal children’s inner world and their wishes. In addition to art and handcraft class, LPT will share with parents how to lead children to find and enjoy the beauties of life.

1. Nature –children’s treasure-house of colors

Colors have the ability to make us calm or excited. When children can distinguish various colors, they are more or less affected by the colors in their environment. For children, nature is the most beautiful and the cutest treasure-house of colors, and can make children happy whether it is bright sun, blue sky, colorful blooms or lush trees. Can you remember the children sang happily in mountains and lawns in The Sound of Music? How joyful when they are in close contact with nature. Hence, parents are suggested to enjoy the beauty of nature with children as much as possible, and organize activities like outing regularly, letting children immerse in the colors.

In LPT, teachers often organize children to go to park to play and sketch, to cultivate their color sense, to enrich their world of color from recognizing simple flowers and leaves.

2. Daedal lines improve imagination and ability of expression

When observing the vein of a plant and the spiral of a snail in the nature, you will find that lines exist everywhere. We usually use a series of adjectives including straight, curved, crooked, jagged, and more. We can also encourage children to use more creative words to describe lines of objects. For example, that line looks like a rugged mountain. The figurative description can accelerate the development of children’s imagination and creativity. Try it more frequently with your children, you will gradually find that children can use figurative way to communicate with you when they express their feelings and opinions.

At the class of art and handcraft in LPT, we often encourage children to depict the lines according to their imagination and to describe them with their own language.

3. Explore and recognize shapes in life

When contacting lines, children will also contact various shapes naturally. Observing more, they will find that shapes in the nature are not as round or square as pictures drawing with tools. For example, children will find that the moon is not so round, star is not quinquangular. When these problems arise, they see the shape of the real world, and parents will have a good chance to explore and learn with them.


Dear parents! It’s time to organize an art and craft class for your children this weekend and experience the beauty of creation with them!
