The Very Young

Start drawing with kids when they're young; you can give the gift of visual experience to a very young child and likely affect the child's visual abilities, encouraging his or her ability to be visually inclined and gifted. One possible activity is to play games with basic shapes. Recognition and duplication of those circles, squares, and triangles is good for visual perception and for developing the motor skills and coordination needed for drawing.

The Art of Drawing

By determining the child's particular interests, you can help encourage a child to draw. Many children, for example, love nature and draw wonderful botanical or biological studies. Others love and draw detailed maps, learning the geography as they go. Mechanically minded children might draw parts of things to show how something works—even if that something is a made-up spaceship or rocket. Whatever interests them, they are learning about drawing and learning to follow their interests, a great gift.
