For example, instead of a praise draw to it the smiling sun, and instead of a ban - a cloudlet with the rain. When the kid draws, ask him on what he wants to show the drawing. That the talent of the artist was not earthed, write down the child in art school or a photocircle. And at home play those games which promote development of creative and art abilities. I will give several examples of such games.

But do not make dalekoidushchy plans. In the childhood development happens very quickly, and your gifted little artist can become the ingenious scientist in the future.
