Our kids naturally love Art and making Art. When they are exposed to arts and crafts, they are able to think “out of the box” since a lot of working with hands involve figuring out how to solve problems creatively.
The New York Center for Arts Education listed benefits of exposing children to art:
Our kid learns to think creatively, with an open mind
Your kid learns to observe and describe, analyze and interpret
Your kid learns to express feelings, with or without words.
Your kid practices problem-solving skills, critical-thinking skills, dance, music, theater and art-making skills, language and vocabulary of the arts
Your kid discovers that there is more than one right answer, multiple points of view
Your kid learns to collaborate with other children and with adults
Arts introduce children to cultures from around the world
Your kid can blossom and excel in the arts. Even with physical, emotional or learning challenges, can experience success in the arts.
Arts build confidence. Because there is not just one right way to make art, every child can feel pride in his or her original artistic creations.
Arts build community.
