Our little artists are SMART, and we should encourage them to come to their own conclusions as they grow and explore through art making.
When you ask a child open ended questions about their work, it does so much more for the child than simply giving them the opportunity to share.
Caregivers can use the art making process to help children practice emotional awareness, pre-literacy skills, STEM thinking and pre-math skills—all through conversation and play.
These are just examples. You can think of great open ended questions specific to your child, their artwork, and the situation. What would you add to this list?
