Child Development and Arts Education
Involving children in creative art activities goes far beyond just being about “art for art’s sake”. This presentation will give an overview to parents and educators about how the arts affect children in their everyday life and enhances their abilities in academic performance. Stages of physical and mental growth—brain development, effect on fine motor skills, problem solving and creative thinking skills will be discussed. It will also focus on how children perceive artistic achievement and how that often differs from an adult perspective and vision of what is considered successful. The goal of this presentation is to have you walk away with useful tools and knowledge that will help you address and enhance children’s educational and creative experiences and outcomes.
