Art plays an important role in enriching children’s learning and educational experiences. Learning through the art can engage and inspire children, support key educational outcomes and develop skills that prepare a child for life beyond school.

Art enhances creativity and is one way to increase a child’s well-being. It allows children to express their thoughts and feelings. Art enhances executive functions like attention, memory and spatial orientation. Art instruction helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness.

Through art, children feel heard and safe therefore encourages exploration. It increases self-confidence, self-awareness and fosters good communication.

We focus on giving children many different experiences with art so they find a medium and process they connect with. We focus on helping children understand associations and connections that colours have in real life.
