WHAT CHILDREN LEARN THROUGH ART

Most young children naturally delight in art. They love the process of applying paint to paper, gluing things together, and pounding a lump of clay. Arts and crafts for kids enables children to learn many skills, express themselves, appreciate beauty and have fun – all at the same time!!

WHAT CHILDREN LEARN THROUGH ART: arts and crafts for kids

Children start experimenting with art materials in our infant classrooms. They learn that in art, “right” is whatever a child wants it to be. Arts and crafts for kids helps them develop eye-hand coordination and develop their small muscle skills. These are the same muscles that they will later need to use when learning to write!

Children in our classrooms are given a variety of materials with which to create their own unique artwork. Involvement with a rich variety of art materials instils confidence and pride. Through art children use their creativity to plan, design and construct an idea. They experiment with form, line, movement, shapes and spatial relationships. They also learn science and math skills as they manipulate materials. And when seeing the art produced by their classmates, they learn to respect the artistic expression of others.
