Arts for kids: let your kids to paint matryoshka
The popularity of matryoshka (nesting dolls) grows from year to year and it spreads to many countries. Matryoshka motives appear in designs of many goods, they became common decorative elements. So this is natural that many people want to try to paint own matryoshka, especially this is interesting for kids.
Now this is possible to buy a set of blank unpainted nesting dolls but they are relatively expensive taking into account that this is easy to spoil the unpainted matryoshka especially for inexperienced artists. Here I would like to offer you an alternative solution how your kids can try to paint matryoshka and it will cost for your nothing. The only limitation is that this is a flat image on a sheet of paper but for small kids this is even better solution.
The idea is simple. Here (on the left) is a picture of a nesting doll, just drawing, outlines of all elements. Each separate area has a certain number that corresponds to the certain color – an ordinary coloring picture. A child uses pencils, water colors or crayons – any favorite tools. As well this is possible to use this picture to color it in computer in an image editing program.
Download the web page with picture of the unpainted matryoshka doll - click the left image with unpainted matryoshka, you can print it out directly from your web browser. Or use this link of larger version of the image .
In bottom-right area of the image you can see a coloring chart, if you use a color printer your kids can use it as refer, if you use a printer with black cartridge only (like me) you can fill the chart yourself. By the way you can use any other colors combination.
Here (on ther right side) are a couple of examples of ready colored pictures of matryoshka (I have to confess that I use an image processing program ad imitate different art tools), just to show how it can look like.
Good luck, little artists!
