Summertime provides children with a long break from school, but some children have a hard time with all of that freedom. Summer can sometimes lead to boredom and frustration, even for the brightest children.
The best way to keep children engaged this summer is to expose them to fun and creative activities such as an art class.
Getting your child involved in art can help with fine motor skill development, improve handwriting, and even strengthen hand-eye coordination. Some of these skills can be difficult for young children to develop, but encouraging them to develop them through art can make a huge difference in just a couple of months.
Getting your kids involved in art can also boost their confidence and creativity. The feeling of success and accomplishment after trying something new can be a confidence boost for kids of all ages. Plus, teaching the lesson of “practice makes perfect” is a great way to foster determination and dedication in your kids.
Art will encourage your child to showcase his or her individuality; when you’re taking an art class, it’s not all about who can make the right project. It’s about discovering how we see things differently, and celebrating those differences.
Exposing your child to art can also help them cope with potentially stressful things in their lives, like the addition of a new baby brother or sister to the family, losing a pet, or starting a new school in the fall.
Perhaps the most important reason to get your kids involved in art is because learning to express your artistic talents is fun! Kids love to take art classes, make new friends, learn a new skill, and create something they can bring home to show their parents.
