Picasso said: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
The first time a child draws a line on a page is a magical moment. Very quickly drawing becomes a much-loved activity in every young child's life. This was the starting point for Dipdap.
Dipdap Creator Steve Roberts says: “Drawing was a huge part of my life growing up. I spent hours drawing, creating characters and worlds and telling stories. Dipdap captures the enjoyment of watching someone draw and trying to guess what the lines will become. Dipdap is fun, silly, absorbing and full of surprises.”
The artist Paul Klee said: “A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” Dipdap understands this! Have fun drawing.
The educational value of the show
Dip Dap helps children to:
- Develop a 'have a go' attitude and confidence in drawing.
- Develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
- Have fun by exploring their own creative ideas after the show.
- Understand the world around them by replicating it through art.
