Idea for these Art Appreciation Printables For Painting came to me when I had a desire to create art experiences for my two year old child. I wanted her to be able to visualize pictures before creating something with a paint brush, since she is still very young. I also made similar materials for children in the preschool classroom and they quite enjoyed painting on top of the pictures of the most famous artist of the world.
Suggestions for using Art Appreciation Printables For Painting:
There are two types of pictures: first are the faded pictures of the paintings and the second bunch contains fragments of paintings in full colour.
1. *Offer matching paint colours to the painting and allow child to bring painting into a full colour
* Offer various types of craft tools to paint on top of paintings
* Let child create collage using different media and materials using pictures as background
2. *Offer child to finish painting using their imagination.
PS. Here is my 2 year old making prints on Van Gogh Sunflower painting. I made sure the paint colour matched the painting colours.
