At 5 years , I am not taking my son to any professional art classes, we are just focusing on improving his dexterity with his hand, be it drawing, painting or sketching.

We draw :

Random patterns

simple animals – like fish, elephant, chicks, dogs, cats ( with the help of simple step by step rules and use simple curves)

stick figures

abstract paintings and sketches

even his video games

We are using pencils, crayons and water colors at the moment.

I won’t say my son likes our creating art sessions as much as he likes coding and playing games on his laptop, but I am optimistic that he will develop a love for it over time. He will create something new out of his love for art and coding :).
