Why It’s Important for Kids to Paint
Painting at home may increase the amount of cleaning work you have to do, but it is one of the most creative and beneficial activities you can provide for your children. Pinot's Palette offers opportunities for children, and those young at heart, to experience the joy of creating a piece of art with step by step instructions from helpful and talented painting instructors. Here are some benefits to setting up special time for painting opportunities.
- Painting develops hand to eye coordination;
- It develops small muscle movements in the hand, developing control of the brush – a skill of special importance for preschoolers who will start learning how to hold and use a pen soon;
- Engagement for both sides of the brain – painting requires logical and analytical thinking as well creativity and emotional processing, so the process uses several nerve centers in the left and in the right hemisphere of the brain as well;
- Learning about colors and shapes in a stress-free way is another benefit of painting;
- Quality time spend together with your kids or quiet time when your kid is completely absorbed in the creative process – painting can be both;
- Painting enhances lots of cognitive functions, including problem solving and decision-making and it does all that without causing any stress or making the child feel bad or stressed in any way;
- A form of expression – you can learn a lot about your child’s innermost thoughts and feelings by analyzing the colors, the shapes and the themes chosen for the painting.
