One can see angels in every piece of art. ~Terri Guillemets
A common impression among us is that art education is a luxury and it belongs to the affluent in society. This is no longer the case now. We take art as an academic- leisure. A fun-filled and creative activity that would serve as the building blocks of child development. It is important for children to learn to appreciate the visual aesthetics in their growing years.
Art projects provides opportunity for kids to learn more about colors, shapes and the appropriate actions needed for creativity. The Children’s Ark Preparatory School aims to tap children’s inventiveness, resourcefulness and of course, talent.
According to a survey by AMERICANS FOR THE ARTS, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of life.
MaryAnn Kohl, an arts educator and author of numerous books about children’s art education states: “If they are exploring and thinking and experimenting and trying new ideas, then creativity has a chance to blossom.”
Another good thing about art projects is that this encourages children to express themselves and take adventures in the art field where they can develop a sense of innovation which is crucial in their future lives. Many studies have proven that there is a connection between art and people’s achievements in life.
The Children’s Ark Preparatory School understands the values of inspiring children to develop a love for art and creativity. As they go along later in life, there will be many challenges which will require creative thinking.
