Learning through and about the Arts enriches the experience of studying whilst at school as well as preparing children for life after school. Arts subjects encourage self expression and creativity and can build self confidence as well as a sense of individual identity.
Art has been proven to increase children's memory and concentration skills, develop decision making and critical thinking skills and enhance communication and listening. It can also encourage focus and concentration. An arts education has been shown to improve self esteem and social skills.
Throughout lockdown there are a number of websites and resources that you can use to help your child continue developing their art education at home.
