Why get up extra early in the morning for Art Club? Well, we know much has been written about how art enhances self-esteem, creativity, and imagination. But, art club provides much in the way of academic development too.
What makes art such a great teaching tool? Art engages children's senses in open-ended play and develops Cognitive, Social, Emotional and Sensori-Motor skills. Art is a cooperative learning experience that provides pleasure, challenge, and a sense of mastery. Instruction in the arts is one of the best ways in which to involve the different modes of learning; through art, children learn complex thinking skills and master developmental tasks (Belden & Fessard, 2001).
