Why every parent of a Toddler in Hampton Roads should join us for Art Start
Why you every parent of a Toddler should join us for Art Start?
Fostering creativity won’t just increase your child’s chances of becoming the next Picasso. Creating art may boost young children’s ability to analyze and problem-solve in myriad ways, according to Mary Ann F. Kohl, author of Primary Art: It’s the Process, Not the Product. However, art can be a messy process. We offer the only permanent gallery at PFAC called Hands on for Kids that will help keep your house clean! But, more importantly it will help toddler improve their skills.
As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. By counting pieces and colors, they learn the basics of math. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. And children who feel able to experiment and to make mistakes feel free to invent new ways of thinking, which extends well beyond the craft room.
Art promotes creativity. So, help your children learn the wonder of discovery and problem solving abilities. Your child does not need to create a masterpiece to have a wonderful artistic experience. Art is a process not a product!
