Ask Specific Questions About Your Child’s Masterpiece!
Asking the question is a great way to encourage your child to describe the artwork he/she has created. While many parents often say “I love it!,” specific questions like “What’s your favorite part?” or “Can you tell me about this drawing?” can help your child to learn to talk about his or her creation, as well as help your child to trust his/her own ideas, learn from decisions, and express what he/she is feeling. You can also ask questions like “I see you used blue. Why did you use that color?” to help him/her learn how to talk about his/her decision-making process on what he/she created.
