What is Process Art?

Process Art is a form of art where the process of creation is more important than the final beautiful picture. Process art is playful and engaging and there is no one right way to do it. Creating process art allows children to explore and have a greater sense of ownership over their art because it is all their own creation. In the process of uninhibited expression and exploration they are constantly making choices, taking risks and developing self esteem. They are also fine tuning their motor skills and expressing their emotions in the form of images.

Simple Ways to Encourage Process Art at Home

  1. Creating an Art Space

Create a simple art space. It is a fixed space in a cozy corner where a child can access easily. Just like you plan for a dining space for a child to eat, an art space is a place to express using images and colors. Most parents are concerned that a child will mess up or draw on the wall. The child would do that only when they don’t know where to do art. It’s about setting boundaries and encouraging a child to make the right habits to explore in a place set aside for this purpose.

  1. Material Accessibility

Keep the art materials accessible. Create a little space to display blank paper, finger paints, crayons, palettes, chalks, pencils, cloth rag for cleaning etc. that is easily accessible to your child. 

  1. Choosing Primary Colors

Choose primary colors – Red, blue and yellow to begin with. Using these colors , children can create a large spectrum of colors on their own. Through the process of exploration, they not only learn colors but also the science of color creation. They do not need too many colors, most times it’s the adults who feel the need for too many options, not children.

  1. Freedom of Drawing

Allow your child to choose what they want to draw. Drawing images is a way of expressing their thoughts and feelings. If your child wants you to draw, you could use your non-dominant hand and draw. Else, your child may get intimidated by what you can do, or may copy your idea which could hinder his/her originality
