Art plays a more important role in child development than you might think. Artistic activities help children learn other subjects such as reading and math. It also promotes visual, motor and social development. Using art as a vehicle for expression is enriching because children can use it as a communication tool. Different types of art can reveal children’s thoughts, feelings, and interests
