Picking up a crayon and making marks on paper is often the very first art activity for young children. Drawing requires very little in the way of materials (simply a sheet of paper and a drawing tool), is easy and engaging for all ages and levels of ability, and is usually mess free.
Drawing allows children to:
- EXPRESS themselves
- PROCESS their world
- EXPERIMENT with ideas and techniques
- MAKE ART anywhere
- INTERACT with others
- & develop FINE MOTOR SKILLS
