Arts and Crafts

As teachers, you know the educational benefits of arts and crafts for students.

In a school or day nursery, arts and crafts are fun and help develop the child’s imagination and fine motor skills. In a classroom for primary students, arts and craft activities allow students to create and explore new mediums and textures. The beauty of art and craft activities for children in a classroom is they can develop self-expression without the fear of getting it wrong.

Putting aside the educational and personal growth benefits, School art and crafts are exciting and fun. Don’t underestimate the self-esteem and confidence boost a child has when someone admires their drawing, sculpture or painting.

Early school arts and their link to the future

At a glance, our modern world seems so distant from an artist and a paintbrush. But, believe it or not, the two are more connected than you may realise. Today’s online environment has created jobs that did not exist 40 years ago. Graphic artists, Visual designers, Website designers, Photography and editing. Many of these jobs require skills that started in the classroom many years ago.
