Why Do Art With Kids?

Children are naturally curious. They observe, explore, and imitate, trying to figure out how things work and how to control themselves and their environments. This freedom of exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn—and it’s also fun!

Art is a natural activity to support this essential interaction with the world. Kids need the freedom to explore and experiment creatively.

Art allows children to practice a wide range of skills that are useful not only for life but also for learning. These include the aesthetic, scientific, interpersonal, and practical interactions that can be discovered through the senses, intellect, and emotions.

Making and appreciating art involves emotional and mental faculties!

Art, whether making it, learning about it, or simply looking at it – offers a wide range of important experiences. In other words, it’s good for them!

  1. Good morning! I have attempted to download the free art project printable and it hasn’t shown up in my inbox yet (approx 30 minutes). It looks great – I’m anxious to check it out. Is there somewhere else i can find it? Thanks!

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I too am having an issue with getting a free download for an awesome activity but a different one. I sent 2 request and haven’t received the download for the Kadinsky tree. I love doing Kadinsky and this activity looks stunning and perfect for my age group. By the way if you don’t know the picture book The Noisy Paint Box: The Colours and Sound of aKandinsky’s Abstract Art it’s great to pair with this lesson.
