Art and Creativity

Art is important for children especially during their early development. Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood; in other words, art is good brain food! Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and develops cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills. As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self esteem and creativity.

Another Gallery Wall Idea

From the Southern California Kindergarten Conference comes this wonderful display concept that makes children's artwork a real standout. First mount artwork onto black construction paper, then onto colored butcher paper. This style of mounting will not only bring out your students artwork with big bright colors, it can also be a group project. And the clean up is easy!
