ACTIVISATION OF THE CREATIVE POTENTIAL IN 7/8-YEAR OLD CHILDREN BY IMPLEMENTATION OF MIXED PAINTING TECHNIQUES IN FINE ART EDUCATION
Introduction: The article explores some processes that activate the creative potential of 7/8- year old children after mixed painting techniques introduction and application. Problems on a theoretical and empirical level are discussed, based primarily on the children's creative activity results and determined by the degrees of free experimental application of painting and non-painting materials.
Study Objective: The usage of some mixed techniques in the fine arts is considered and how they reflect on the dynamics of the children's education creative process.
Methods: During the experimental work, the following methods are applied: monitoring and analysing the processes of working with different materials, experimenting with mixed painting techniques, composition analysis, image and richness of the expression means.
Results: In the course of the study, it is established that the usage of more than one material for the pictorial activity significantly increases child creativity and better image in graphic and artistic terms are acquired, composition and richness of expression means are attained.
Conclusions: The application of mixed painting techniques in fine art education of 7/8-year olds increases the creative activity, builds a lasting interest in the fine art, and enhances the emotional and aesthetic impact.
