“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.”
~ Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
Art improves fine motor skills, neural development, and enhances problem-solving abilities. It can be an effective and fun tool for teaching and understanding other important subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science.
Art classes in schools are always a favorite for kids because they get to create, express themselves and experiment with new art mediums. Art allows children to set their imaginations free. But art is more than just fun, it is vital for a child’s cognitive, psychomotor, social and emotional development. Studies show that children who participate in art classes perform better in school overall. They are also more attentive during class and tend to be more innovative in their learning. Research suggests that learning art enables a higher quality of life throughout a person’s life.
The Artful Parent says: “Art is naturally linked to creativity, an attribute that is increasingly being touted as one of the most important factors for the success of individuals, organizations, and cultures.”
A kids art class is a wonderful way to get your child interested in the arts, or to help your budding artist improve their existing artistic talent. We also have many art examples that your young artist can use to gain inspiration, or we will help them find inspiration on the internet.
