Voilà : the game of point This is an amazing activity, so amazing in fact that I wanted to make you know.
So what is it?
The game painting was created by Arno Stern and like all good things, his work has simmered! For 50 years !!!
50 years passed directly to children.
50 years to refine its comments, try new things, or even return to the old.
50 years of travel interspersed among different peoples (virgin, a little, of the Western world).
But it took him much less time he discovered the immense creative potential of a child, provided it is not from their personal necessities. That is, provided we let him paint what he wants, without cutting it by giving its opinion (exit definitively the "oh that's nice" or the "you should not instead make your windows more small? ")
Yes I do. Arno Stern was in favor of letting children quiet's sake (that's me huh) !! The child is free to paint what they need without fear of judgment of another, or the interpretation of what is called the trace. For this trace can be completely freely, the adult accompanying the child without judging or teaching any technique. Its role is to support: moving a bug, make a stool, add water in a bucket ...
And that bias is a real success because, thereby, the Game of painting allows children to develop autonomy and grow among the others. Just attend a meeting to realize ... as a player (no thank you fans, here we are not making a spectacle !!!)
aggressive and desperate individual.
Arno Stern's books are exciting, but they aren't in english for the moment...
With some photos, I invite you to discover the workshops "spontaneous colors" that we often had the opportunity to follow me and my kitties (yes I know it's not fair, it is the grandmother of my children that animates and who mades his training with Arno Stern... she will fascinate you too!) Oh! I believe that it is needless to say that this is exciting !!
