Rothko used simple shapes : squares and rectangles. Some were big and some were small and some were super skinny! Here is how to create a Rothko style artwork.
Lines and Creativity
Every child is special. Every doodle they create is unique and shows the freedom they experience when young. Their first artwork, a line or a curve is their first expression, their signature. How many of us parents honestly take the effort and time to understand and treasure these masterpieces, or even share with our friends and family?
Children are in their purest minds while they run these lines of imagination!As parents and teachers, we need to provide them the time and tools that help them broaden their circle of imagination, in other words; to become Creative!
“Creativity comes with less rules at home or school, where children are encouraged to think for themselves.” says Harvard psychologist Teresa Amabile.
Creativity in musicians, artists, architects, athletes, even doctors bring joy and wonder to their work as they enjoy doing it and are not told to do so! By letting them learn few things on their own and not by the book/other people's perspectives, brings out the creative side of a child that goes into adulthood helping him/her to lead a healthier and happier life. This creative thought process is your child's own genuine and unique approach to life!
A good read for all parents who want their children to be creative:
