Creatives see obstacles not as roadblocks but as opportunities. Their way of thinking can literally change the world. Without creative thinking, we wouldn’t have the wheel, the Sistine Chapel, electricity, or the worldwide web. It’s the foundation on which great things are built upon. For this reason, encouraging creativity from the earliest age is paramount.

Artistic expression is creativity in its purest form. It’s the natural activity to nurture a child’s imagination, allowing them to explore and experiment, learning as they develop ideas in a fun and educational way.

Here’s a breakdown of the key qualities that children will develop when they are encouraged to express their hidden artist.  

Artistic expression is creativity in its purest form. It’s the natural activity to nurture a child’s imagination, allowing them to explore and experiment, learning as they develop ideas in a fun and educational way.

Academic Achievements

Studies have shown that there’s a distinct correlation between artistic acumen and achievement. Young people that participate in artistic activities three times a week are four times more likely to be recognised for their academic achievements.

These achievements aren’t solely just limited to artistic subjects either. Creative problem-solving is an important skill that teaches children how to find solutions to any challenges they may face. By shifting one’s focus from active problem-solving to a more creative approach, a greater understanding of the subject matter and innovative solutions to a problem can be achieved.

When art in nursery is emphasised as an essential element of the curriculum, young children are learning invaluable skills that can then be applied to every area of their scholastic lives. As they grow, these skills can be used to achieve greater academic, professional and personal prosperity.

Decision Making

It has long been understood that an artistic education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

The average young person makes approximately 3,000 decisions every single day. This may seem like an inflated amount, but the data is confirmed from multiple online sources. Learning how to make choices and decisions based on the projected outcome is a fundamental skill that children must learn, and is a skill that can even dictate the outcome of your life.

Art teaches children from a young age how to look at an action before deciding on an outcome. It poses questions about colours, shapes, sizes and textures. Each question requires considered thought before the appropriate action is taken.

When children are taught how to do this in their early years, they are constantly making decisions in the classroom. Art enables children to make critical decisions, based on the information that they see and interpret in front of them.

Once this skill is acquired, it will evolve as the child grows, allowing them to factor in a greater number of variables before making the decision. This ability to absorb information in its increasing complexity before deciding is essential when making decisions as an adult.

Motor Skills

Child development healthcare professionals universally agree that art activities enhance children’s motor skills.

The simple act of colouring with crayons or painting with a brush teach children from an early age how to connect the intentions of their brain with the actions of their body.

As we mature, so too do our capabilities to interpret the world around us. Although this process begins from the moment we’re born, it evolves in its simplicity from childhood into adulthood, allowing us to perform complex actions to complete tasks.

National Institute of Health states that infant development milestones can be clearly identified as we grow. At the age of three, young children should be able to draw a circle and use safety scissors and within a year young children should be able to draw different shapes and cut each of them from the paper.

By encouraging children to express themselves artistically from an early age, teachers and parents are teaching children to use the tools available to them to fulfil their aspirations.

Perseverance

One of the key attributes to success is perseverance. Any artistic endeavour can be challenging. It’s believed that it took Michelangelo four years to paint the Sistine Chapel, between 1508-1512. Without perseverance, one of the greatest artistic marvels ever created by humanity simply wouldn’t exist.

With a group of little Michelangelo’s in the classroom, not only are aprons for infants a necessity, but so too must be an attitude of perseverance be cultivated. After all, there will be times when young children seem to get more paint on themselves and the desks than on the paper – investing in aprons will save you the worry of sending children home to their parents covered in paint!

However, teaching nursery children to always finish their artwork is one of the most invaluable lessons a child can learn. Once this attitude of perseverance has been acquired, it can be applied to every area one’s life, and used to achieve great things.
