Stencil art with children!
Today, I would like to share Olivia's experience as a teaching assistant. Olivia taught young children the stencil art below.
First, draw a picture that will be the background with watercolor paint as shown below. At this time, draw the background naturally using the wet-on-wet technique and the gradation technique with watercolor paint and big flat brush.
Then, apply the stencil and paint the empty space with acrylic black color paint. At this time, make sure you know that you have to press and hold the stencil and draw at the same time.
After 2-3 minutes, slowly and carefully remove the stencil.
For the background, you can use the splatter technique as shown below to express a snowy landscape or an aurora borealis.
Following Olivia's teaching, the students creatively completed the night forest.

Teaching young children about art and allowing them to express their creativity can be a rewarding experience. Providing talented students with opportunities to explore their skills in teaching, alongside their artistic abilities, can be a valuable and enriching experience. It allows them to develop not only their artistic talents but also their leadership, communication, and mentoring skills.
Incorporating teaching into an artistic context can foster a sense of responsibility and encourage students to share their knowledge and passion with others. This combination of art and teaching can create a unique platform for self-expression and growth.
This experience can help them develop their teaching techniques, learn how to engage with different learners, and cultivate patience and adaptability.
Furthermore, it allows these talented students to explore a potential career path in art education. They can gain valuable insights into the teaching profession, build a portfolio of teaching experiences, and discover their own teaching style and approach.
Overall, combining artistic talent with teaching opportunities can nurture well-rounded individuals who not only excel in their artistic endeavors but also have the ability to inspire and empower others through education.
As an artist, teaching experience or career is very important. Because art is maximized through the integration and cooperation process of various fields, interest and passion for education positively activates art activities. In this respect, I personally expect many young artists to share their educational experiences and advance their careers.
