Art therapy as a method of parenting

The psyche of the child is quite sensitive to external influences. Therefore, many methods have been invented that help parents in the comprehensive development and upbringing of children. We propose to talk about one of these techniques – art therapy.

By the way, this concept should be understood literally as a cure by art: using art, you can “cure” a child’s bad behavior by harmonizing his mental state through the development of the ability to self-knowledge and self-expression.

The advantage of this technique is that the process of development and upbringing runs smoothly and, most importantly, is completely invisible to the child. At the same time, creativity launches the mechanisms of “self-healing”, so that the child gets the opportunity to turn to internal resources that were not previously in demand.

BASIC TECHNOLOGIES OF ART-THERAPY
There are several art therapy techniques that can be used at home.

PICTURE
This is the standard direction of art therapy. Using the picture, they diagnose the stability of the psyche and the emotional development of the child. This technique has several directions – plot drawing, chaotic, diagnostic, thematic and arbitrary. Any of these techniques can be used for homework. Simple practical exercises and a certain freedom of the baby will lead to good results. Let the child draw chaotic lines, let him change colors, this allows him to express himself.

DOLLS
An indispensable tool actively used during the early development of children. It can be either dolls familiar to us, which can be bought at any store, or wooden figures or homemade toys. With the help of dolls, the baby begins to get acquainted with the outside world. Playing with dolls allows the child to adapt in society. In art therapy, he uses not only the gameplay itself, but also the work of making dolls, when the child takes an active part in creating the desired image.

SAND
Taking any form, sand becomes a practical embodiment of children’s imagination. Games with sand are not only exciting, but also allow you to develop motor skills, imagination and coordination of the baby.

DANCE
The healing properties of dance have been known since primitive times. Choreography helps to improve the health status and socio-communicative skills of children. In addition, during the dance, the child is liberated and learn to express their emotions.

MUSIC
Scientists have proven that music has a positive effect even on plants. Therefore, it is not surprising that listening to music has become an integral part of the aesthetic education of children. Music helps shape the taste of the child, his thinking and perception of the world.
CHILDREN’S ART
Art art is a very fascinating activity, which causes interest not only in children, but also in their parents. That is why mothers and fathers are happy to engage with their baby, thereby turning art therapy classes into family leisure. Note that drawing, sculpting or creating dolls allows you to both show your imagination and develop the motor skills of your hands, as well as instill an aesthetic taste in your child.

We offer you to familiarize yourself with several options for practicing art therapy.

FAIRYTAL TREE
Even kids at the age of three can already create paintings that complement the interior no worse than the masterpieces of famous artists. It is only worth a little help the child. For example, you can start learning by drawing a fairy tree.

To do this, take:

sheet of paper (regular writing);
watercolor or gouache, which is more familiar;
several brushes of different sizes;
rags, rags;
a jar of water.
If gouache is used, then with a drop of water added to each color, slightly soak the paint.

A sheet of paper is placed on the table, paints and water are placed next to it, and a cloth is always at hand. Now you can start.

A tree is drawn starting from the trunk. Since the tree is fabulous, the trunk can be blue-brown, or orange-purple. The combination can be any. From the vertical line of the trunk in the center of the leaf, you need to make several branches.

Then the paint is contrasted or suitable in tone. It is applied next to the drawn contour. There can be many such lines.

Leaves are applied on top of the trunk and branches with another paint. The thicker the leaves, the larger the crown. You can help yourself with your fingers. The leaves should be colorful, because the tree is magic. The roots of the tree are covered with fabulous flowers.

After drying, the masterpiece is ready. It can be decorated with an original frame and hang in a nursery, living room or any other room. And if you want to demonstrate such a masterpiece to everyone, then you can take a picture of it and post a photo on social networks.
