Why is art in children’s education so important?

Why is art in children’s education so important?

Art brings joy and develops a creative streak in children. Dipping their fingers in paint to create a beautiful picture to hang on the refrigerator or acting as a character in a play will stimulate their minds and fill them with excitement.

Creativity: Art helps children express themselves and become better in math or science.

Improvement in learning outcomes: Art not only develops children’s ability to create but also endows them with related skills to apply to learning processes.

Motor skills: This applies primarily to young children doing art or playing an instrument. Simple things like holding a brush and scribbling with crayons are an important element in developing a child’s fine motor skills.

Confidence: Standing on stage and singing gives children the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone. As children progress and see their improvement, their confidence will continue to grow.

Intuitive learning: Especially for young children, drawing pictures and folding paper figures help develop spatial-visual skills.

Decision-making: Art can strengthen problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Learning how to make choices and decisions at an early stage will transfer into definite advantages in adulthood.

Perseverance: Art can be challenging for children, but will teach them that hard work and perseverance will be rewarded.

Concentration: When a child is lost in drawing, singing or acting out plays, concentration is required. Certainly, concentration will be a key trait for learning as well as working in the future.

Collaboration: Many art forms like singing in bands and choirs require children to work together. Children must share responsibility and compromise to achieve common goals. Children learn that contribution to the group is inevitable for success.

Sense of responsibility: Like collaboration, children need to learn to be responsible for their contributions to the group.
