Not just Art Skills - these are Life Skills

The benefits of art on early childhood development is well-known. Art helps children to explore and appreciate the world at their own pace and in their own way. Being multisensory it engages nearly all their senses which improves both physical and cognative development.

Practising art helps children develop good coordination and fine motor skills. Simultaeniously, they learn observation and spacial awareness.

Creating their own work builds self-confidence and esteem. Their ideas are respected and valued. StART encourages creativity without fear-of-failure which is essential for critical-thinking and problem-solving. Perhaps most importantly practising art relieves stress.

It's frustrating when art is sidelined as 'non-essential' when it touches on almost every aspect of life.

“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.”

- Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
