中国画，中国传统文化的国粹之一。作为一种特殊的艺术形式，逐渐被世界各个艺术领域接受并获得赞赏。儿童国画是在国画基础上加入儿童喜欢的趣味性元素，在吸引孩子们画画的兴趣的同时，了解中国文化。中国画的优势还体现在对孩子性格和气质的培养上。独到的中国式审美会让他们更特别、更有创造力。在培养孩子观察能力、思考能力、耐心以及秩序感方面,国画的作用独树一帜。毕加索说＂每个孩子都是一个天才的艺术家＂。每个孩子的天性中都有用绘画表达自己思想的天赋。就看我们怎么去引导他。国画的工具也相对简单，一瓶墨汁、两支毛笔。你会发现它们其实非常神奇。欢迎你和孩子一起来学中国画。国画小小班欢迎你的加入!Children's Chinese PaintingChinese painting is a quintessence of Chinese traditional culture.
