Art & Craft Classes at NewAge

At NewAge we believe learning arts and crafts not just fosters the creative development of a child, but also assists in advancing and refining his or her core skills, which in fact goes towards boosting academic achievement as well. Art and craft help develop appreciation of visual aesthetics and function as building blocks for the development of children. It promotes the all-round development of children. It facilitates language development by providing an opportunity to pick up new words and expanding their vocabulary

Benefits of Inculcating Art & Craft in the Learning Curriculum

  • Self-Esteem
    Self-esteem is all about positivity around your self-worth. Once a child can do the crafts by themselves, it improves their view of themselves. It helps them understand that it is okay to make mistakes, and they can turn the mistakes into new ideas. This skill is useful in life as many challenges await and without self-esteem, it is not easy to deal with them.

  • Socialising
    When making crafts, children get to interact. They can share ideas about different crafts that they can make. This enables them to be even more open to ideas. During these interactions, they make friends.

  • Arithmetic Development
    During arts and crafts, kids count and use different shapes and sizes. Through this, their mathematical skills improve. When they start school, they will be able to count better and understand different sizes.

  • Creativity
    A child who engages in arts and crafts can come up with new ideas from the crafts. Art & Craft materials will help them to retrieve different ideas from their imagination, thereby improving their artistic abilities.

  • Improving Coordination
    Art and craft require children to use their hands in certain ways. Simple activities like using scissors can help improve a child’s ability to do things like tying shoes. When kids use their hands to do art, they improve their fine motor skills. They also improve their coordination, and they are easily able to use both hands at the same time.

  • Communication
    When you are doing arts and crafts, you can engage the child with small talks about the craft. This will improve their communication skills, even in other areas. During the talk, they can also pick up vocabulary from the conversation. The Parent can also better understand their child’s feelings, as expressed through their crafts.

  • Critical Thinking
    In making crafts, you make choices depending on what you want. A child making a truck can choose the colour and size of the truck. After the final product, it is easy for them to know whether their decision was right They can even choose to do it differently the next time. When you take them to buy materials at an arts and crafts shop, they can easily pick what they need. This improves their critical thinking skills.

    Conclusion

    Art and craft are important for the overall development of children. It is important to encourage children to do art & crafts as this will all go towards ensuring good overall development of the child.
