Little Artist

The goal is to help children develop the skills they need to feel confident in expressing their emotions through creativity. Some include abstract art, spin art, collage, drawing, and painting. With kids, all types of art helps with their fine motor skills like gripping a pencil, cutting with scissors, applying glue, or drawing lines. Over time, children start to develop and improve as they go while having fun in the process. It creates endless opportunities for them to problem solve, being able to guess, make their own choices, and see their results. Children can learn and absorb new information daily. Art can help build the confidence they need to feel more comfortable with themselves and keep an open mind.
