How to draw and paint?- 

  • Drawing is the art of representing an object or outlining a figure, plan or sketch by means of lines. A drawing can also refer to a picture made with a pencil, pen, or crayon rather than paint. Drawing uses various instruments like pencils, pen and ink, wax color pencils, crayons, inked brushes, and charcoal and various surfaces such as paper, cardboard or canvas. Irrespective of the materials used, drawing produces an accurate representation of the visual world upon a plane surface. Drawing mainly focuses on creating lines and shapes using a pencil, a pen or charcoal. 
  • Painting is the practice of applying color to a solid surface such as a paper or canvas. It is one of the oldest art forms. The color pigments used in a painting can be in a wet form, like paint, or a dry form, like pastels. Artists can use different mediums for their paintings, such as watercolour, acrylic, oil, fresco, and tempera. The medium is usually applied to the solid surface with the use of a brush; some artists may also use other implements like sponges, knives and airbrushes. Moreover, paintings can be done on many types of surfaces, like paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, walls pottery, leaf, and concrete.

Being creative helps children to grow psychologically- 

Painting, drawing, cutting and pasting all help to develop fine motors skills in young children, which in turn helps them to be writing-ready as they near school age. Children are not born with a pencil in their hand, so it takes time to develop the skills required to make one work. Creative play helps to develop those skills.

With that in mind, it’s important to recognise that your child’s scribbles represent a huge milestone in their physical development. The strength and coordination required to make that happen, is less than that required of toddlers learning to draw. Just making a mark is a milestone. As children get older, creative activities will help further develop their fine motor skills, as well as their hand-eye coordination.
