Kids love art! Whether it’s open-ended or structured, any chance they get to express their creativity and use their imagination is gladly accepted.
When children engage in hands-on art activities, they are allowed the opportunity to work on a variety of skills and concepts. From problem solving and focus, to perseverance and critical thinking, art plays a major role in learning and development for kids of all ages.
Messy art is an especially fun way to encourage art appreciation in children. When they aren’t confined by rules meant to limit the mess, kids can have the freedom they need to unleash their inner artist. Plus, messy art is fun!
