How Art can benefit your child
- The activity of creating art can help fine motor skills develop, especially in young children.
- Language development is assisted through art. Simply talking about colors, shapes and what you are creating help children learn new words and express their own ideas.
- Deciding what to create as an art project and describing how it will be made helps with decision making and problem solving. By choosing different materials the child becomes aware that they are being allowed to explore their own inventiveness.
- Art and history work well together and art projects are a fun way for children to learn about different cultures, artists and ancient civilizations.
