Ask Me About: Art!
Ms. Maya & Ms Lisa write:
“Toddlers make absolutely wonderful pictures when they are allowed to freely work with paints and color. Children are born artists. They are naturally curious, imaginative, inventive and intuitive.
Art gives children the opportunity to explore those areas and grow in a safe environment because it is fun for them. Art helps children grow and develop through creative thinking and feeling. Art is about the process for kids, and not about the end product. So in the process of doing art, kids learn critical thinking, problem‐solving, and develop social, emotional and physical skills, such as fine and gross motor skills. But really, early art doesn’t have to equal academic genius. It’s giving the kids the chance to express their creativity and learn what art is about which is freedom to think out the box.”
