Schematic Phase
The main characteristic of this phase is using a base line for painting and repeating the shapes that the child is already familiar with. Schematic is defined as repealing the element and symbols that are representing things. For instancing, painting houses like each other or mankind like scarecrow. The shapes are usually paint with rigid and long lines and the child is motivated to stick to his own way of painting. Later the child try to use more different base lines to show the details of the things, with these lines he is able to show the front, behind and beside facing of different things. For displaying better drawing he uses more lines. Children at this phase are usually between 6-11 years old.
Suggested activity 1: recognizing the texture
 In this phase understanding the texture and materials are the key. At first, we talk about the texture with kids.
 Simple texture like paper or coated paper and the fact that water color painting is not good for coated paper as the colors slip should be explained. The other kind of paper like Parchment paper or tissue that can have a rough surface by coasting them with glue stick.
Suggested activity 2 recognizing the features of painting tools
 The main reason behind understanding of the materials is to be more creative.
 The child should understand it.
If something is drawn by crayons then it is painted by watercolor or light paint crayons does not disappear or vice versa.
In the paintings below the lights, the gift,  the balloons and the candles are drawn by crayons then they are painted with watercolor without any problems. The child could see that the watercolor slip from the surface of the crayons and the original painting is the same.
Suggested activity 3 basic prints
Sponge printing:
Different sponges with different shapes and color are provided for the child then he is asked to paint something by himself.
Fruit printing: Some fruits like oranges, belly papers or potatoes are cut and children are asked to print whatever that they have in their mind.  
Suggested activity 4: collage
At this age children are getting familiarized with collage simply.
Tearing paper with hands and sticking them somewhere
Sticking sheets of paper that are already cut with a pattern (tiling)
Collaging different pictures next to each other
Collaging light paper and dark paper to show the understanding of lightness and darkness.
Collage and covering
Collage and covering in the nature means children find the things that are covering each other in the nature and name them like a grape tree that leaves are covering the grapes or a basket that fruits are arrange there.
Suggested activity 5: two-dimension handicrafts
Two-dimension handicraft is a great way to show the child the understanding of far and near position. Coach can help children to understand the meaning of perspective.
Suggested activity 6: creativity with matches and glue
Suggested activity 7: making masks and dummies for plays
