Many guardians work with their preschooler on learning letters, reading books and even, incorporating math skills into everyday life. These skills and exercises are important and beneficial to your preschooler but by adding creative play and activities (like painting) you will help the overall growth of your kid’s whole brain. So, here are the few reasons why your preschooler need to join the art Dubai classes.
Exercise of your child brain: Creative activities like painting, utilize a different part of the brain than reading or math. The right side of the brain is our creative half and responsible for visual skills and understanding what we see through our eyes (which is still developing at the preschool age). Creative play and painting activities help exercise your child’s “right” brain leading to an overall healthy brain development.
Painting build self-esteem: By providing open-ended painting activities your child there is no right or wrong way to paint. The emphasis is on the process so every child feels successful no matter their expertise level or developmental stage.
Develop muscle control: Working with a brush or small tool helps develop fine motor skills (small muscle control). While dealing with huge pieces of paper or at the easel helps large muscle control (Gross Motor skills). Painting also helps your child’s hand eye coordination.
Sensory experience: Your child is building a knowledge base of various tangible experiences, similar to how it feels to touch the paper with finger painting or how it feels to get the brush with your arm across the paper hen trying out paint by numbers. Sensory experiences are important because it helps your kid with exploring and understanding their general surroundings.
Develop verbal language: Often times preschoolers can’t wait to share with you about their work of art or painting. Be sure not to guess about what you think your child has painted but instead ask your child, “tell me about your painting”. By asking open-ended questions, it will help stretch and grow your child’s thinking and verbal skills.
Opportunity to experience the cause and effects: While painting, your child is also experimenting and thinking like a scientist. Permit your kid to combine shades to attempt new mixes and explore with the paint and coloring.
Relieve stress: Painting is one way your child can de-stress and a healthy way to express their feelings.
