Fun Educational Art Ideas to Help with your Child's Development

Ref: C2345829

You and your child will explore creativity together, and share and develop ideas. You’ll be helping with your child’s development in fine motor skills, hand- and eye-co-ordination, imagination and communication… while having a lot of interactive fun together. Please Note: the WEA is an adult education provider, and as such we cannot run online workshops involving your children. So we will run workshops with you, where you will learn the skills to take back to your children, to practise between sessions. The next session will include time for your feedback - how did you get on, working with your child?

Course aim

Are you looking for something educational and creative to do with your pre-school child? This Practical Art course will encourage you to learn together – live, online, in the comfort of your own home.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • This course is for beginners

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • increase my confidence in drawing basic shapes and patterns
  • increase my skills in mixing colours and applying paint with texture
  • develop my own skills in engaging with creative ideas
  • use a range of skills and techniques to prompt creative ideas in my child: ‘thinking outside the box’, seeing art as a starting point for stories, asking questions, making suggestions, use of encouragement and praise
