The act of drawing, small as it might seem, plays a significant role in physical, emotional and cognitive development of a child. It allows young kids to express their emotions, experience autonomy and build confidence. Thinking from career perspective, from the field of medicine to graphic design, drawing is essential for all.
The journey for kids starts from scribbling. As the scribble they are able to experience the motor movements and their senses develop further. While children scribble something, they see for the first time what they are thinking in their minds. Thus, they learn to express their thoughts via lines and scratches and relate it with visuals. Slowly, kids learn shapes and start observing their surroundings and remembering things.
Drawing provides a creative outlet and serves as a firsthand experience of the world. The imd1 Kid’s Art from HeART – Master course is designed to encourage the various skill development in children of the pre-schematic and schematic stage. Developed with a scientific approach, each chapter is designed to offer the kids new learning. The course strengthens the child’s critical thinking ability, problem solving skills teaching them to interpret, criticize, and use the visual information.
Moreover, the course induces a curiosity in the kids about newer methods of drawing and painting. It keeps the light of curiosity alive in them and as they grow, they will more likely enjoy learning new skills irrespective of the hard work involved and enjoy the process. This art course designed in consultation with Urmi’s Art Forum and endorsed by Padma Shri Tilak Gitai is for young kids to embark on their artistic journey. The course focuses on teaching of advance drawing elements, use of complex shapes, advanced color and shading techniques, composition techniques, proportion as well as representation of animals and human figures.
