Using Art and Craft To Further Your Kid's Educational Journey
In Australian schools, teaching young kids art and craft is just as important for their education as learning english and maths. The benefits are endless, from boosting their mental health to growing developmental skills that will not only assist them during high school, but also adulthood. Some of the major advantages of using art in schools include:
1. Developing fine motor skills, including cutting, holding and hand-eye coordination
2. Learning colour, shapes and texture
3. Socialising with classmates
4. Increasing self-esteem and sense of achievement
5. Encouraging creativity and self-expression
