ART & CRAFT
We at JKG feel that Art and Craft is important for children because it encompasses
all the domains of a child’s development. Art lends itself to physical development
and enhancement of fine and gross motor skills. For instance, when kids work with
play dough they fine tune their muscle control in their fingers.
Art activities also help children’s social and emotional development. Children learn about themselves and other through art activities. It really helps them build self-esteem. It’s an opportunity for children to make a personal statement about their uniqueness through art and craft activities while allowing them to express happiness, joy and pride.
Art reflects what a child knows about the world and enables the child to choose how to translate those ideas and experience. Finally, Art is important because it allows children to be creative and at JKG we give them that space to be masters of their own imagination.
