Sunshine Day: Song Ziping, Lei Yan’s Children Art Studio exhibition
Today children’s painting education plays a very important role in the early phase of children’s growth as does dance and music education. It especially affects more directly than other subjects on self-confirmation, fantasy and freedom to paint are very useful for the imagination, creation, and even the personality. As we all know the earliest way of human expression is by drawing. Drawing is naturally an easy way for children to face the objective world. So encouragement and proper directing are the best ways for children’s early drawing. We should be careful not to force children to do very skillful drawings.
After making it clear about the intention and direction, we put forward some new methods according to different problems in it. We should provide children with more space to imagine and create. This teaching method has already become the basic attitude in our teaching. Our aim is to change the recognition of the objective world into the estimation of the subjective world; change the skill training of objects into the respect of children’s world and how they interpretate it.
In recent years Song Ziping & Lei Yan’s art studio has made great progress for insisting on the teaching aim during teaching practice. I’m glad to introduce the works and share the teaching experience of children’s painting with those who dedicate to improving the level of children.s painting education.
