Benefits Of Giving Your Child Exposure To Art

When children have exposure to art at a young age, their curiosity and creativity blossoms with inspiration. Children who grow up in a home with artistic parents who give them a media for creating art on their own, possess many qualities that other children do not have. These children are the ones who can write and read better than other children who aren’t exposed to art or given the opportunity to create.

 

One parent might ask, what is the definition of an art? The defined meaning of art is, “the conscious use of imagination in production of objects intended to be contemplated or appreciated as beautiful, as in the arrangement of forms, sounds, or words.” A parent needs to first expose their child to as many materials as they can to create art. Once the materials are offered, children then make the choice to solve certain problems, leading every step to another decision to make. With each choice a child makes, the object becomes more their own. If the child chooses not to use any of the materials given, that is their choice. If a child is never given exposure, they will never make a choice.

 

Here are some ideas to incorporate into your home to artistically challenge your child:

 

  1. Create a scrapbook t Print old and new photos, get memorabilia from the past, drawings from over the years, and add captions on the book creatively. When making this, you will not only share a wonderful experience together, but you will have a great book as this memory.
  2. When reading to your children, be expressive and dramatic. This will teach your child to be the same way when reading. Encourage your children to also create their own stories to act out for you.
  3. Expand their musical knowledge and play different radio stations when your home. Sing and dance with your children, playing games, while also letting children hear all different kinds of music for free.
  4. Create an art studio in your home. Get scissors, crayons, finger paints, markers, colored pencils, oil pastels, and different sized containers, objects of all different sizes, and different colors and textures of paper.
  5. Save all old Halloween costumes for children to play dress up and be creative. Parents can add to the collection by giving children old hats, scarves, gloves, purses, and shoes.
