Canvas Painting For Kids
Canvas painting for kids is an excellent activity that fosters creative exploration, skill building, confidence building and develops cognitive skills! Kids do very well with step by step instruction.
With step by step structured painting instruction, you set your child up for success! You will be amazed what he or she creates and he or she will certainly feel very confident!
Also, through step by step instruction you can insert other learning opportunities in other subject areas such as math and science! You can teach your child the basics of art such as the Elements and Principles and even a little Art History if relevant!
Beginning with painting instruction at home is easy. All you need are a few basic supplies that can be found at your local craft store such as canvases, paints and brushes.
If you’re looking for a detailed list of supplies to get you started with acrylic painting, check out my page here about that.
Start with an easy painting and then work your way up as your child becomes more comfortable with painting. I also recommend that you paint with your child side by side in an “I do, we do” sort of instruction.
