Creative Arts Play

What do children learn from creative arts play? 

Children of all ages delight in expressing their ideas through sounds, textures, colors, and shapes. Creativity in children can be developed by engaging them in activities that enable them to share their ideas, thoughts and feelings. 

The creative arts– painting, sculpture and drawing–are a crucial part of childhood. Not only do the arts allow children to express themselves, but creative activity can enhance development of children’s skills in literacy, science, math, social studies, and more.
