As a means of human expression, painting has a unique process of production and development.
First, independent walking frees the “hand ability”, then the “visual ability” to concentrate and control the function of the fingers, and finally the “language ability” that can associate things that are not in front of you. These three abilities jointly promote human painting Capacity development.
After a long historical process, we have mastered these three unique human abilities.
It is on the basis of these three abilities that children’s painting activities that can be called “art culture” have blossomed.
However, nowadays, many children who are in the “flowering period” of this unique art culture continue to diminish their enthusiasm and enthusiasm for painting.
Some children are completely uninterested in the painting activity. These children are often given instruction in painting by adults and cannot draw their own paintings. Including: children who have been taught words before drawing, children who have reversed the development order, children who have received semi-figurative and one-way communication methods of television and video, and children whose language skills have not yet fully developed.
Such children not only do not draw, but more worryingly, they have lost interest in drawing.
In the development of young children, art activities play a very important role. Modern human civilization is based on modeling games (that is, arts and cultural activities), and has continuously accumulated the development of writing culture.
In the cultural activities of early childhood, if a child loses enthusiasm for this core modeling game (art), it is likely to have an extremely serious impact on the development of the child’s personality.
Emotional ability and enthusiasm, as well as learning ability and labor ability, are important abilities that we humans must have to survive. If there has been a decline in emotional ability and enthusiasm since childhood, it is likely that the child will have a “no perseverance, no interest, and no moving” three-none character.
We should think carefully about the relationship between emotions and drawing ability, patiently and correctly guide children’s interest in painting, and don’t demand the “rules” and “methods” of painting, so as not to stifle the imagination of children.
