Art Club allows children to express themselves in a safe way by letting them explore different materials and colors. Art club is a platform to develop aesthetic values and enhance the creative skills and artistic talents of students. Students engage in open-ended play and develop attention span, problem-solving skills and other cognitive social-emotional skills such as turn taking and observation. Meaningful art experiences provide children with authentic self-expression – the freedom of choice, thought and feeling. Students also explore the arts as in music, drama and creative writing.
