Welcome to the Expressive Arts page here you will find lots of ideas and links to getting creative.
Art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them, and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child’s development.
By engaging in art activities, children practice a variety of skills and progress in all areas of development. Creative art helps children grow in physical, social, cognitive, and emotional development. Children also practice imagination and experimentation as they invent new ways to create art. This could be through techniques including art, drama, movement, music, poetry, puppetry, and sand play.
