• Cooperation inherent in art activities encourages relationship building and friendship skills.

Art and Craft for Children

20 Jun

Arts and crafts teach children to learn in different ways and approach problems and challenges creatively. The process of creating art helps students get in touch with a different side of themselves that they aren’t able to access in other subjects like math and science. According to the Raise Smart Kids website, arts and crafts programs are often the first programs cut from school budgets during hard financial times and this can impact a child’s learning process.

1, Brain Function
2, Creativity and Imagination
3, More Likely to Succeed
4, Builds Confidence
