How to draw?
Today, there are many high-quality art materials, each of which has its own characteristics and provides certain opportunities.
If we are talking about children's creativity, then a high-quality set of colored pencils is the best option. The basis for the pencil picture is paper. Even thin office sheets can be used, but landscape, paper, or cardboard are more acceptable.
Crayons (pastel technique)
In the visual arts, different types of pastels are used:
- with an oil base (wax);
- dry pastel (soft and hard).
Oil-based crayons are more used as apprenticeships. Dry pastel is a professional material, but soft and hard crayons will be needed to create a drawing. As a basis for drawing using special paper with a fleecy or rough surface, as well as a special cork board.
One of the most popular art techniques, the advantage of which is the use of water-based paints, which allows for beautiful transitions between shades. Basis - special paper for watercolor painting.
Unlike watercolors, oil is painted on canvas or on wood. This method can be safely chosen for those who want to make not just drawings, but unusual mini-presents for the New Year 2020.
Oil paint creates textured strokes, so to work effectively with it you need to gain some experience.
Acrylic paints are quite popular today and for many are an alternative to oil. But, when choosing a material, keep in mind that acrylic is very allergenic. Such paints are not recommended for children!

Santa Claus and his friends
The European colleague of our Santa Claus, the kind wizard Santa, has also become a favorite children's hero and, like a New Year's symbol, he can also be portrayed by thinking through his exclusive drawings for 2020.
Santa is most often painted in the company of faithful deer, who help him deliver gifts to the children, or together with the elves, without whom the process of selecting and packing New Year's surprises will not do.

Also, based on coloring, you can make an exclusive New Year's card, placing the image so that it occupies only half the sheet.
Here are some of these coloring pages. You can save the image to your computer and simply print it on paper using a printer.
