As your child is getting back into the school swing, you may also be considering their extracurricular activities. A creative class like art, sewing or music may be a great addition to their weekly schedule. Here’s why:
1. Art teaches children to think openly.
It can give your child a chance to explore different mediums and make decisions they’re not used to making. Art is a great way for children to become curious and ask questions.
2. Art develops hand eye coordination.
Coloring, painting and drawing are all mediums that can help your child practice new motions and pay more attention to physical space.
3. It may help your child improve in other subjects.
Studies show that children who make art are better readers, and receive better grades in science and mathematics.
4. Art provides children a place to express themselves.
With testing and some of the more challenging parts of the school day, an art studio can be the perfect oasis for a child to express themself while improving creative skills and trying something different.
5. Art nurtures inventiveness.
Art engages children in a process that aids in the development of self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, and self-motivation. It’s a great way for your child to discover a rewarding new passion!
