Children are effective communicators and through the creative arts, children learn to make meaning and freely express their thoughts, ideas and feelings. Drawing also acts as a powerful way for caregivers to understand how a child is feeling”

Few reasons how drawing helps growing children:

  • improves hand-to-eye coordination and fine motor skills
  • improves observation skills (spacing and proportions)
  • helps in holding the pencil comfortably (tripod grip -the way they hold it while writing)
  • improves confidence and comfort level
  • helps in keeping a child engaged longer
  • helps in drawing without use of tools
