We’re delighted to showcase this charming scenery drawing by Wrishik Ghosh of Birla High School, Kolkata! Wrishik’s colorful house nestled amidst lush greenery captures the essence of imagination and the simple joy of children’s creativity.

My child's drawings look like scribbles. Is this normal?

Yes, it’s totally normal! Scribbles are like your secret language, and they’re the first steps to becoming an amazing artist. Keep practicing, and you’ll see how those scribbles turn into shapes, people, and anything you imagine!

How can I encourage my child's creativity in drawing?

Create a safe and supportive environment for your child to explore their creativity. Offer them a variety of materials and tools, and let them experiment without judgment. Ask them about their drawings and encourage them to tell stories about their creations. You can also try fun drawing activities together, like drawing from observation or creating a collaborative mural.

What are some easy drawing techniques for beginners?

Start with simple shapes like circles, squares, and triangles. These shapes can turn into anything you want! You can also trace objects or use stencils to create outlines, and then fill them in with colors or patterns.

Have you ever dreamt of drawing a magical place all your own? A whimsical house, a towering tree, or perhaps a friendly animal peeking through the leaves?

Art for kids is a wonderful way to bring those dreams to life! Today, we’ll guide you through creating your very own scenery drawing – it’s easier than you might think, and the possibilities are endless.

1. Gather Your Art Supplies

The best part about kids’ art is that there are no strict rules! You can use:

  • Crayons: Perfect for bold colors and easy shading.
  • Markers: Great for vibrant lines and details.
  • Colored pencils: Ideal for blending and creating textures.
  • Paper: Any kind will do, but thicker paper is less likely to wrinkle.

Tip for Adults: Having a variety of materials on hand encourages experimentation and lets children discover their preferred tools.

2. Imagine Your Scene

Close your eyes and picture your ideal scene. What do you see?

  • A cozy house drawing with a chimney puffing smoke?
  • A majestic mountain range bathed in the warm glow of the sun?
  • A playful squirrel scampering up a tree?

Let your creative expression flow! There’s no right or wrong way to imagine your scene.

Tip for Adults: Ask your child open-ended questions to spark their imagination. “What colors make you feel happy?” or “Is your scene in the day or night?”

3. Sketching the Basics

Now, let’s turn those ideas into a drawing. Start with simple shapes:

  • A square can become a house.
  • A circle can be the sun or a cloud.
  • A triangle can transform into a tree or a mountain peak.

Once you have your basic shapes, add details like windows, doors, leaves, and even a path leading to your house.

Tip for Adults: Remember, drawing for beginners is about having fun! Don’t worry about perfect lines; focus on the joy of creating.

4. Bring Your Scene to Life with Color

This is where the magic happens! Choose your favorite colors and start filling in your shapes.

  • Experiment with different shades and pressures to create depth and texture.
  • Use darker colors for shadows and lighter colors for highlights.
  • Mix and match colors to create a unique and vibrant scene.

Tip for Adults: Discuss basic color theory with your child, like warm and cool colors, or how colors can evoke different moods.

5. Share Your Masterpiece!

You’ve created a beautiful nature drawing! Be proud of your artwork and share it with your family and friends. You can even hang it up in your room or create a gallery wall with all your children’s artwork.


Remember, art for children is a journey of exploration and discovery. The most important thing is to have fun and let your imagination soar! Who knows, you might just be the next young artist to grace the pages of Curious Times!
