Art Gallery

4 June, 2008. posted in Children's Art Gallery, Everyday, Learning.



Painting with the under two’s is more than just an art activity. Within the Birth to Three Matters Framework, children get the chance to manipulate tools. At this stage, they use a technique called “dobbing” where the brush is simply used just to transfer the paint onto the paper in a splodge.

Painting enables us to encourage the children to name and differentiate colours.

The close level of supervision during these activities allows for strong relationships to form between children and their carers which is fundamental to having a happy time at nursery.

All effort is rewarded by words of encouragement and praise and a child’s sense of worth is fostered as the picture is shown to friends and family or added to a display.

    Perhaps you could get it framed! Isabelle’s group are doing a lot more art now so there will be plenty to view and plenty to display.

    Hi Haley, Did you get some inspiration for art projects from your recent holiday? Hope it went well. I would like to see some more of Isabelle’s pictures here! No surprise there…Eleanor
