Arts and crafts as a subject in the school curriculum are typically taken for granted as a must for children in the formal education setup. But, over the past several years, many schools have unfortunately cut down on arts in their school curriculum. Music, painting, theatre- they are fast disappearing.
By engaging in creative pursuits of music and arts and crafts, children get the opportunity of expressing themselves in a positive, tangible and meaningful way. They also learn to create artwork on their own.
Participating, with other students in art class, gives children a chance to interact with others while sharing common interests. The process of arts and crafts also strengthens parent-child bonding.
Arts and craft activities help instil a sense of achievement and pride in children, boosting theirself-confidence.
