5 years old's painting
Stages of intellectual maturity
For 5-year-olds, the stage of intellectual maturity begins when they draw. At the age of 5, children begin to use drawings for communication purposes. In other words, the layout and theme of the painting all convey a unified atmosphere and a certain message you want to convey. Your child will rely on his or her pictorial skills to transfer people and objects into pictures. The concept of different shapes and images of objects is based on children's personal experiences. Children at this age can find their own special ways of expression, such as being somewhat exaggerated or omitted.
The picture below is 5-year-old Audria's drawing of the circus. Some of the motifs were drawn by following circus images she observed together to get ideas for her circus, and some images were created by herself from her imagination. The lion in the middle has an exaggeratedly long tail, but this presents fun in the picture.
She loves her blue color and enjoys painting her favorite images with her own preferred color. She likes to create an atmosphere around her favorite colors rather than experimenting with different colors.
All the characters are smiling and she can give her drawing a happy ending. Also, she places each object well in its proper place in every corner of the screen.
Drawing is a fun creative activity for young children. The children's world is contained in the play, and the children's heart is contained in the picture. For children, drawing can be said to be the language of the mind that shows how they see, feel, and think surround them, and it is the most natural means of expressing their inner feeling with self-awareness.
