WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ART FOR CHILDREN?
There are many benefits to creating art for young children. For one, it can help develop their creativity and critical thinking skills. Art often requires viewers to use their imagination and interpret the artwork in their own way, which can help children learn to think outside the box and come up with unique solutions to problems.
Additionally, creating art helps children develop their visual literacy skills. By learning to look closely at the colors, lines, shapes, and textures in a piece of art, children can learn to better understand and interpret visual information. This can also help them develop their attention to detail and ability to focus on a task for an extended period of time.
Furthermore, creating art enlightens children to different cultures and perspectives. Art often reflects the ideas and experiences of the artist, and studying a wide range of abstract art can give children a glimpse into the diversity of human experiences and cultures.
Overall, learning about and creating art can be a fun and engaging way for children to develop a range of important skills, including creativity, critical thinking, visual literacy, and cultural awareness.
My nanny took my 3 year old to Playday on a day there was no school and my daughter came home so excited about all of the projects she created. She also told me to tell her nanny she doesn't need to come with her when they go back today since she has her own special art teacher when she is there. The projects she brought home made it clear to me that the Playday staff was able to keep my daughter's focus and attention. She was SO PROUD of her work (much higher quality than what she makes at school). And we just booked her 4th birthday party at Playday next month! Can't wait. Thank you Playday Hoboken for making my daughter's week - she went two days in a row!
