How It Can Help Them Grow Into More Creative Individuals
Numerous studies have concluded that children who engage in Arts at a young age are more likely to grow more intelligent and more creative individuals. This is because Art helps them become ‘more aware of their existence’ and are able to connect deeper with the Earth, giving them a chance to experience it in a whole new perspective. Art opens the eyes and minds of your children to see things in a different light, and in turn, become more mature individuals as they are able to grasp earlier the knowledge of the following skills:
- Cognitive Skills
- Motor Skills
- Language Development
- Decision Making
- Cultural Awareness
- Visual Perception
- Math Skills
These skills do not have to be acquired through the most expensive art programs. As your child grows up, it is important that you let them express their ‘creative juices’ at home. Do not try to teach them how to color within the lines early, as they will be able to learn it on their own as they get to explore more later on. Get them to play with colors, write on every surface possible, and give them as many sheets of paper as they like. It is when they see that their parents are supportive of the craft, will they make it a point to learn more about it as they see they are more appreciated.
However, at this day and age, Arts is considered as something impractical. There are many factors that would hinder the parents from getting their child into the Arts, and that mainly has something to do with financial incapability. However, schools with students who have lower academic achievement have been found to drop their Arts Education. This tells us the level of Academic Achievement the Arts can give your child as they progress into their schooling. Fortunately, there are Government Bills like the No Child Left Behind which would grant those who are financially incapable a chance to level the playing field of those who are privileged enough.
