Arts and Crafts and the importance of creative development



Arts and Crafts and the importance of creative development

As a learning activity, arts and crafts have traditionally been passed over in favour of more academic pursuits. But craft – particularly developmentally appropriate craft activities – can aid learning in other areas like language, music, art, social studies, science, maths, health, and nutrition.

art and craft

At Dehradun Hills Academy we have art and craft as a part of the over-all curriculum and special emphasis is given on ensuring it is taught as a proper subject as opposed to having one or two classes a week. All children love to create art and make things. In younger children playing with arts and crafts inspires creativity while helping them to focus their mind and complete a set task while older children can begin to gain an understanding of artistic and design skills that may affect their future educational choices.

When children are encouraged to play with art materials, they are developing:

  • Creativity: Assembling something unique
  • Originality: Finding new ways of doing things fosters problem-solving skills
  • Planning: Thinking, following through, finishing a project
  • Cognitive Skills: Linear or sequential thinking to reach the desired result
  • Knowledge: Learning about their world by exploring textures, materials,
  • Fine Motor Skills: Feeling, manipulating, sorting, arranging, pushing, placing
  • Exploration, Discovery & Science: How things work and change like pouring
    glue, play-dough formations, paint mixing, gravity, and velocity
  • Language: Expression of how something feels, looks, sounds; its name and
    purpose
  • Math: Sorting, patterning, ordering, categorizing
  • Self-Esteem:Pride in finished project, sense of accomplishment
  • Family Play or Traditions: Family connectivity, a sense of belonging, feeling valued and wanted through proudly displayed art work.
