“Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them, and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child’s development.
Child art is a term created by Franz Cižek (1865–1946) in the 1890s. It is the drawings, paintings, or other artistic works created by children. The art of each child reflects their level of self awareness and the degree to which they are integrated with their environment."
