Art is the process or of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, photography, drawing, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.
Raising children to appreciate art is a noble undertaking. Drawing is the fundamental skill of the visual arts that can - and should - be learned by all children.
Children express themselves visually using art as their own language, when words are not enough or are too difficult and painful to be expressed. They can show you what they have seen or done or who they have met, how they feel or what they think about through art. They are wonderful mediums for gaining insight into your child without being invasive of their personal space. It also develops children’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as they learn to grip their drawing medium and guide it around the needed surface.
Children learn to look after their equipment and get encourage to share with their playmates in situations.
Through art children learn about colours – the names, how they mix, thick and thin line making and different shapes and become more observant of their environment.
Art workshops for kids have fun and creative activities for your child. In some cases, art workshops are conducted for psychotherapy and healing. Art therapy workshops also help build confidence and self-esteem as the kids’ works are posted on exhibits.
In many instances, a child's art will display their strengths, weaknesses and general interests as well as their emotional mien. Profound and intense therapy can be conducted and augmented with the introduction of art in a child's life.
Kids can make friends and learn to expand on their creativity in fun ways.
Art is encouraged to be incorporated into your child’s life.
