Terapi Menggambar Buat Anak Special ( Autis )

Sebelum memulai kelas gambar untuk anak special ini yang perlu digaris bawahi adalah bahwa semua hal yang berkaitan dengan pekembangan anak-anak ini adalah sebuah proses dan kita harus sabar dan bener-bener menghargai proses ini. Berikut ini adalah beberapa hal yang perlu diperhatikan:

1. Anak-anak ini setidaknya harus sudah memiliki minat dan semangat yang tinggi dalam menggambar atau mewarnai.

2. Perlu diperhatikan usia anak dengan materi yang diberikan karena berpengaruh terhadap persepsi anak tentang gambar itu sendiri, tentang bentuk dan tentang warna.

3. Pada kondisi anak normal saya memberikan 4 metode pembelajaran menggambar dan mewarnai yaitu mencontoh gambar dari instruktur, mencontoh gambar dari benda-benda/obyek di sekelilingnya, menggambar bebas dengan topic yang sudah ditentukan dan yang terakhir adalah khusus mewarnai.

4. Saya masih belum merumuskan materi gambar berdasarkan tingkat usia anak-anak ini. Hampir semuanya menjalani materi yang sama mungkin saja seandainya ada banyak asisten bisa jadi materi gambar yang saya berikan berdasarkan perkembangan tingkat usia mereka.

Karena anak-anak special ini memiliki karakter yang berbeda maka cara penanganannya pun juga berbeda.

Autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire draws spellbinding 18ft picture of New York from memory… after a 20-minute helicopter ride over city

This astonishing 18ft drawing of the world’s most famous skyline was created by autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire after he spent just 20 minutes in a helicopter gazing at the panorama.

The unbelievably intricate picture was drawn at Brooklyn’s prestigious Pratt Institute from Stephen’s memory, with details of every building sketched in to scale.

Landmarks including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building can be seen towering above smaller buildings after just three days in his spellbinding creation.

Listening intently to his ipod throughout the artistic process – because music helps him – London-born Stephen uses only graphic pens as he commits his photographic memory to the high-grade paper.

Invited by top U.S. television network CBS to display his talents to the American public in a new screen appearance this week, Stephen has dumbfounded art lovers around the globe with sketches of Tokyo, Rome and Hong Kong.

Stephen sketches his layout in pencil first and then scales it within the border, first adding in landmarks before filling out in more intricate detail,’ said Iliana Taliotis, who works with Stephen and his family.

‘He works methodically in short sharp bursts and is even being put on webcam by CBS as he puts his art to paper.’

On his third visit to New York, this is Stephen’s first panorama of the world’s most iconic cityscape.

‘Stephen feels this is his spiritual home,’ said Iliana.

‘There are many similarities between his home, London, and New York that he can relate to.

‘The only difference is that everything is on a bigger scale and with taller, more modern buildings.

‘Cities have always been his passion, and he is drawn to cosmopolitan lifestyles.’
