REVERSE COLORING PROCESS ART FOR KIDS
PROCESS ART FOR KIDS
A process art activity is more about the making and the doing, rather than the finished product. The point of process art is to help kids explore. Explore their environment, explore their tools, even explore their minds. Process artists see art as pure human expression.
If process art isn’t something you’re familiar with, make it easy! Focus on open-ended art, with more attention paid to how the art is created as opposed to what the art looks like.
Start easy with using simple art supplies like watercolor, crayons, markers. Tools that are already familiar to both you and your kids will make the activity more fun!
WHY DO ART WITH KIDS?
Children are naturally curious. They observe, explore, and imitate, trying to figure out how things work and how to control themselves and their environments. This freedom of exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn—and it’s also fun!
Art is a natural activity to support this essential interaction with the world. Kids need the freedom to explore and experiment creatively.
Art allows children to practice a wide range of skills that are useful not only for life but also for learning. These include the aesthetic, scientific, interpersonal, and practical interactions that can be discovered through the senses, intellect, and emotions.
Making and appreciating art involves emotional and mental faculties!
Art, whether making it, learning about it, or simply looking at it – offers a wide range of important experiences.
In other words, it’s good for them!
- Art Paper
- Watercolor paints
- Black markers
STEP 1: Paint any design you like on the art paper using your watercolor paints. Let it dry.
STEP 2: Now use a black marker to outline the shapes you created with your watercolor paints.
STEP 3: Once you have outlined the areas of paint, use the marker to add details, designs, shapes, stripes, dots, etc. Now you have made a reverse coloring page!
TIP: You can use black or any other colored markers.
