Besides all of the fun we have here at Kids at Art, there are plenty of ways art can improve our skills. Here are 4 reasons your child should take an art class!
1. Art encourages creative problem solving.
There are no right answers in art, which gives us a chance to analyze problems and come up with our own unique solutions! Creative problem solving is a valuable skill that can be used in school and throughout life, from science and writing classes to figuring out the best way to get all of our chores done.
2. Art can boost self esteem.
As children gain independence and figure out who they are, art is a great outlet for self expression. It gives them an opportunity to look at a piece and say “I made that!” which will always be a special and unique feeling.
3. Creating art improves academic achievement.
This includes enhancing test scores, attitudes, social skills, critical and creative thinking.
4. Everyone speaks the language of art.
Works of art are languages that all people speak that cut across racial, cultural, social, and educational barriers. They enhance cultural appreciation and awareness. Anyone and everyone can appreciate a beautiful piece of art!
