Raising Little Picassos – Why Should We Introduce Art To Our Kids

Art is said to be food for the soul and it is rightly so! When I get involved with my kids into their creativity, it has instant uplifting effect. Cheers my mood right away! It is colourful, messy yet liberating. Art can be good in many ways. While everyone started to focus on STEM education, researchers gave “A for Art” an equal importance and included it in STEM, turning it into STEAM education. Art is a word that allows one to express their creativity in forms of paintings, crafts, literature, music and art.

Schools always tend to focus on Maths, Science, History and Language while giving very little time to art skills so it becomes important for us parents to make sure they are introduced to it. It gives us a great way to connect with them and give their creativity new heights.

Let’s see what impact art has on kids…

When a child uses a crayon and applies different strokes with different pressures or swipes a paintbrush, the motions used develop fine motor skills. From drawing solid scribbles to colouring with finesse, a child grows with each line that he draws. Using scissors to cut shapes also works great for kids. Playing with playdough and slime have great benefits. All these tend to increase the fine motor skills of a child.

Nowadays, even a toddler learns quickly that a phone or tablet works on swipe which means visual information is the first that they process. Playing with clay, drawing and painting and threading beads increases spatial and visual learning.

Art gives an opportunity for kids to be themselves, to express themselves. To go above and beyond their imagination. You will be surprised at what a child can show us through art forms.

Children who perform art activities quite often tend to have improved academic performance as well. The steps to be followed while making an art improves the level of concentration.

Art soothes a troubled mind and calms a child down instantly giving it a beautiful distraction.

It also boosts confidence, teaches perseverance and teaches patience.

Considering all the positivity that art brings, me and my daughter used to work on a lot of projects. She loves drawing and painting the most and since lockdown occured, I wanted her to try something out from a professional tutor online.

That’s when I came across Impart Art Academy. I was so tempted by the work they showed me not just of their art teachers but also their students. The detailed step by by step teaching that they show in their sessions is so amazing to watch and easily understood by kids. From crayons, to paint colors to charcoal drawings, kids get to learn a variety of work. The sessions are also not rushed to the point and even though online, every child gets an opportunity to show their work at every step and corrections wherever needed are explained well.
Images like shown below are shared after every class so that the child gets a step-by-step view of their teacher’s work and is also able to practice later.

  2. Your daughter is super creative! Yes, do not stop your kids from not drawing on walls. I myself used to draw a lot on the walls when I was a kid but my parents never stopped me. I see a lot of parents trying to stop their kids from drawing and I feel bad for the kids. Very nicely written

  7. Oh wow. These are some really amazing paintings. She has an amazing talent and I am glad that you are nurturing the talent. My daughters also had started these classes by Impart Art, but then I realized they are too young to sit through. I will give it another try a few months from now.

  8. It delights me no end to watch you, young moms, encouraging the kids to be creative and explore all mediums of art. My grandsons too keep dabbling in every form. If they were in India, I would have truly had them enrolled with Impart art academy.
