The major problem of the teacher at lessons of painting is «eye fixing» of the pupil, that is the ability to look at nature as a whole, comparing subjects by form, color and tone; to grasp color and tonal shades of nature. The pupils gradually get acquainted with the world of painting, the palette of paints, basics of chromatics, the master methods of work with a brush, acquire skills of work with water colors and gouache.

Painting lessons develop the skill to see and to evaluate the beauty of colors and shades in nature. The basic tasks are educational arrangements of still life. In addition, children study how to paint flowers, stuffed birds and animals, portraits, sketches of human body. The attention is also paid to tonal analysis of nature in monochrome technique.
