How to develop creativity in the child? I do not know secrets of popularity of albums of Taro Gomi of
how you, and to me, for example, in the childhood did not like a coloring. It is simple it was somehow not interesting to paint someone else`s picture and except the choice of color, the imagination especially could not be shown. I also remember what in a usual sketchbook sometimes for me was a problem: “What to draw?“ and “How to draw?“ There is a wish to draw that - but it is necessary to think up still on what subject.
Therefore when I for the first time took in hand albums of Taro Gomi , I was lost in admiration! Who such this mysterious Taro Gomi?
It is the Japanese illustrator and the author of children`s books. In total them at it more than 400! He is an owner of a set of awards in the field of children`s literature. But first of all, Taro Gomi is known as the author of unusual albums for development of creativity which he thought up 20 years ago.
In what their idea? In these albums the child is offered to finish drawing drawing which there began the author. On each page is:
1) a question, a task or the beginning of history which should be continued;
2) drawing - “basis“ of the author which should be painted;
3) big space for own drawing.
All ingenious - is simple ! The child does not need to puzzle to represent on a blank sheet. The author gives it “catch“ and pushes to that he began to dream and think out stories on the most different subjects. And Taro Gomi does it very competently. Its drawings are executed in a unique children`s manner therefore to the child it is not difficult to continue them at all. It has no fear of an accurate equal contour of an adult illustration, and it safely joins in game.
The children`s psychologist Ksenia Orlova considers that through creation of plots the child will be able to splash out emotions which sit at it inside, without finding a way out outside: to draw what he wants what he is afraid that it is interesting to it. And attentive parents can learn at the same time that at the child on mind.
For example, answering the question “What Does the Cockerel Want to Tell?“, the child will draw, the fact that he would like to tell itself, but did not speak as it was not asked. Drawing on “What color a chameleon now“, the child language of color will tell you about what at it now mood. And what is costed by a page “The snake has own opinion“! Not so often an opportunity to declare the opinion, the truth is represented to children? Or Make Vegetables Tasty offer? It is a direct call to the child: “Vegetables are not pleasant - so make them tasty, you - the master of fate! “
needs to be Drawn in Taro Gomi`s albums all family ! And for your kid your participation in fascinating process of drawing will be very useful and irreplaceable. Parents are the greatest wizards for the children. You have a fine opportunity to recognize the child closer! Discuss with it its drawings. And it is still exciting to lift a self-assessment of the little artist, every time praising it for masterpieces. Do not criticize a drawing plot, on the contrary, approve any manifestation of an initiative. By the way, it is possible to make a house exhibition of the drawings which are selected by the child, having issued it on a wall, for example in the nursery.
