Help your child make a DIY abstract painting

Today, we’re sharing a step-by-step guide on how to help your child unleash their inner Picasso and create an abstract painting.

Does your child enjoy art? If so, you’ll be pleased to know that the benefits of art for kids are many and include problem-solving abilities, creativity, literacy, fine and gross motor skills, connection, and understanding.

While some children love painting or drawing specific shapes, objects, or items, others prefer an ‘unstructured’ approach.  Abstract art invites children to interpret, rather than recognise, a subject. It is an amazing form that lets kids of all ages explore, learn, and grow in creating art.

What you need

  • Three to five coloured acrylic paints
  • A roller
  • A white canvas or two
  • Some clingwrap
  • Paper towels
