Why Toddlers need Art…

You’ve probably been there, art with the little people seemed like a great idea before they got paint everywhere and you’re trying not to freak out! At Creative Natives, yes there’s paint, yes there’s ‘mess’, but it’s all good!

Allowing your toddler to get messy is so beneficial, we forget that this ‘mess’ is actually great for them as they learn spacial awareness and problem solving! Also, their fine motor skills are being exercised when they work with pencils, crayons or brushes, and painting hones their mini hands for future writing skills. Stretching to paint on huge pages and pressing to stick or draw is teaching them about what they’re physically capable of, as well being pretty mega fun!

Not forgetting the social and emotional benefits of the Art Sessions, being in a group of mini artists all sharing materials is good for them, they learn to appreciate the shared and individual experience as they explore their creative flow.
For your mini Creative Native the 6 week program of Art Sessions will give them the opportunity to discover art and feel confident in their own ability. With lots of encouragement they will be taken through the fundamentals of drawing, painting, collage, printing and various other age appropriate art forms.
We have no doubt, they’ll impress you!
