The Case for Kids & Creative Expression - Part One

Written by Renee Royle, Dabble Art

The arts and creativity play a fundamental role in a child's development, well-being, and future successes. Creative expression encompasses various forms of artistic activities, including drawing, painting, music, dance, writing, and more. At Krafty Kids, we strive to contribute to each child’s development through Visual Art. Our programs aim to balance exposure to new ideas, nurture current passions and interests and encourage curiosity.

Enhanced Cognitive Development

Engaging in creative activities helps children develop essential cognitive skills. They learn to think critically, solve problems, make decisions, and explore new ideas. These cognitive skills are transferable to other areas of their lives and contribute to academic success.

Emotional Well-being

Creative expression provides a safe outlet for children to express their emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Art allows them to process complex emotions, reduce stress, and build emotional resilience. It gives them a sense of control over their inner world.

Boosted Confidence & Self-Esteem

When children create something unique, it instills a sense of pride and accomplishment from within. Sharing their work provides opportunities for positive external feedback and recognition from peers, carers, and others, further fostering a positive self-image.

Build & Practise Communication Skills

Creative activities encourage children to communicate visually, verbally, and through body language. This enhances their ability to express themselves effectively, articulate their thoughts, and understand the perspectives of others.

Fostering Creativity

Nurturing creative expression fosters the development of creativity as a skill. Creative thinking is crucial for problem-solving, innovation, and adaptability—skills that are highly valued in the 21st-century across all areas of society.

Social Skills & Collaboration

Many creative activities involve working with others, which promotes social interaction, teamwork, and collaboration. Children learn to share ideas, compromise, and respect different viewpoints.

Are you searching for an exceptional after-school kids club that nurtures your children's artistic passions and talents? You’ve come to the right place! Enrolments for Term 4 of 2023 are now OPEN. With limited availability of only 10 student placements per class, secure your child's spot today.

Join us every Thursday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm for a fun and joyful one-hour after-school arts and craft club, where an experienced art educator will inspire and guide your children through a diverse range of engaging art and craft activities. Tailored for ages 5 to 12, these hands-on experiences will leave your child brimming with excitement and creativity. Once your child is settled into the studio and ready to begin the session, we encourage you to utilise this time for errands, indulge in a well-deserved hour of relaxation or perhaps grab a coffee and catch up with a friend. We’ll take care of the messy fun!

Our program encompasses various artistic disciplines, extending beyond painting alone. Your child will have the opportunity to create unique masterpieces in a calm, supportive environment. At the end of each session, they can take their artwork home to display proudly for friends and family to view.

In Term 4, we are thrilled to welcome back Mrs Royle from Dabble Art to our Rosé Soirée team. She’s taught a wide variety of subjects across every year level from Prep to Year 7 in Queensland schools for almost 20 years. She brings with her a passion for visual art and a deep understanding of how powerful engagement in the creative process is for the growth and development of children.
