BEST STARTS FOR KIDS
Visiting the Art Gallery: Stage 2
If you haven't already done so check out the Things To Do Section: Open Ended Art Materials.
Visiting the Art Gallery (stage 2) is designed as an extension to further develop children's interest and artistic ability.
Unfortunately due to COVID 19 visiting the art gallery has become difficult.
I suggest typing each of the following names into google, click images to search:
Vincent van Gogh Raphael
Claude Monet Henri Matisse
Andy Warhol Salvadore Dali
Michelangelo Gustav Klimt
Leonardo da Vinci Rembrandt
Sandro Boticelli Pablo Picasso
Donatello Frida Kahlo
Jackson Pollock Paul Cezzane
You can choose specific paintings to highlight (that maybe don't contain nudes, depending upon the age of your child) and compare and contrast the styles of the artists.
Go to the local art gallery and examine different artists and examine the techniques they use
Locate a series of frames for your child's artworks to be displayed in
Look up different artists on the computer and discuss different art techniques used
Look at a specific artist your child likes and investigate them in detail. Let your child experiment using their style as an input

If your child is interested in art, the following extension ideas could span years:
Go to the library and get out books on artworks... (You may need to vet these as many contain nudes)
Go to your state art gallery and look at visiting exhibitions. Follow up learning more about the featured artists
Get your child to save pocket money. Go to a specialist art supply store and look at the variety of media available. They could purchase items to develop a new area of interest or refine existing skills
enrol your child in an art class designed for children to extend a particular area of interest
