Making a Paper room with children
The topic of a recent online course for children in Myanmar is making an art room out of paper. Because it is an online course, it is not possible to complete the art room in 30 minutes because the speed is slow and there is an interpreter in the middle. However, I had time to make the art room background and art table. Myanmar children had difficulty drawing a three-dimensional desk, but after several attempts, they drew it beautifully.
All components in this art room are made by cutting and pasting with a glue. It can be attached and detached by posting it using scotch tape. Children can spread their imagination and play together to their heart's content.
You can imagine and draw various places such as schools, churches, restaurants, and parks as shown below
You can make a three-dimensional house by attaching two sheets of paper together.
Children are accustomed to games, YouTube, and cartoons, but when they play this game, they say that this play is more fun than the game. This means that children prefer to play imaginatively.
Below is an art room drawn by 5-year-old Audria from one of my students. She has a talent for rendering her objects well, painting them beautifully and portraying them nicely.
