Here are some art projects for kids age 4 to 6 years. These art projects have been inspired by artists from all around the world.
Toddlers and kindergarteners are never shy to express themselves. They are enthusiastic and are capable of handling any type of mediums like watercolor and acrylic paints. These kids age will love to paint with brushes and tools.
This is also the right age to introduce them to different artists and styles of paintings. Kids should see and appreciate the paintings of artists, learn new techniques and themes to paint. This not only exposes them to different art forms but also ensures that the kids are trying out something new. So you wouldn’t find girls drawing fairies and butterfly or boys painting cars and the Superman every time they are asked to paint.
The artists chosen here will introduce the kids to basic lines and shapes, human faces and figures, animals and flowers. Stik and Keith Haring gives the concept of human figures to kids. The art project of Thierry Noir faces is fun to draw.
Here you will find artists who paint abstract like Joan Miro and Paul Klee. Children will also learn to paint flat and smooth. They will be introduced to different techniques in watercolor and acrylic. The concepts of symmetry will be practiced from artists like Takashi Murakami. Children of this age will love the art style of Romero Britto.
There are many artists who were the part of the Art Brut movement. Gaston Chaissac and Jean Joseph Sanfourche are some such artists. Contemporary artists like Lucila Manchado will be also fun to draw.
For painting cities, see James Rizzi paintings.
Buy good quality paints and brushes for the kids. Have a stock of canvas and paper readily available for them. Allocate an area so that the children can paint every day.
Preserve children’s art. Children have great ideas and it is worth referring them later.
