Why Children Need Art?

Art is a form of Expression
Through art a child express his or her feelings and interpretation of their thoughts. This should be encouraged and every opportunity extended to them to freely express themselves without interferences.
Creativity is a character building process, which, if properly developed, maintained, realizes a healthy balance between intellect and emotions.
A child school life today is often busy and stressful both in school and while out of it with a dose of lessons at school; and the load of homework, attendance at tuition classes and other extracurricular pursuits. Under these conditions it would be prudent to find some space and time in a child's day; to encourage and guide him or her to toy with their own thoughts and impressions, and creativity and freely express those in these own unhindered Art Forms.


Little Fingers Children’s Art Studio

Children's drawings obviously show artistic development and expression. In educational and clinical settings, they can be vehicles for assessing a child's personality, intellectual development, communication skills, and emotional adjustment. Children's drawings can also aid in helping to diagnose learning disabilities. Law enforcement officers, social workers, and counsellors often have children draw traumatic events, especially when they lack the communication skills to explain what they have witnessed or experienced. Children may also feel distanced from the traumatic event by drawing it and talking about what is happening in the picture, as if discussing a character in a book or on television.


“Little Fingers” Art Exhibitions.
Children's art, especially a drawing, represents one of the delights of childhood. The child's artistic endeavours are mainly produced for pleasure and the exploration of art media. They can also be used for developmental and therapeutic assessment.

Creative Workshops
Creativity through crafts is a wonderful way to express your self and build self-esteem. Children can be successful through craft projects designed just for them and learn that there is no right or wrong way to be creative.

Creative parties entertain in a way that includes and amuses children of all ages and gives them the satisfaction of creating their own fun activities.

Cookery Workshops

Cooking will follow a child all the way to their adult lives, it also Can help reinforce the fundamentals of math, science, reading and art just to name a few. And also learn to be creative and learn from mistakes learn how to clean up and keep work area clean. Most important children learn to try to eat different foods while reinforcing healthy eating habits.

“Moods” Master Art Workshop
Identifying moods - in other people and in themselves - can be particularly difficult for children with special needs. They often completely miss visual cues that should let them know how others are feeling, and may respond inappropriately. This will help child to learn what facial expressions mean, how to recognize emotions in others, and what those same emotions feel like to them.

Oil Pastels with Poster Paint.
Colour analysis has often been a means of determining a child's emotional state. A lot of black or red recurring in a child's drawing may be a troublesome sign. Black often is an indication of depression or feeling hopeless or restricted. Red may indicate intense anger. Blues and greens are usually calm colours, and yellows and oranges often indicate cheerfulness. Therapists are not ordinarily concerned if a child does one drawing in one of the troublesome colors, but may want to investigate a series of dark drawings, especially if the content is also frightening or disturbing. Therapists may use the therapeutic session as a means of emotional release and may encourage a child to create drawings that express their deep fears and angers. Drawings in this case are not assessment instruments, but become therapeutic tools.

Pencil Sketchers
The child will observe the Light and shadow, folds, and motion are observed with mixed success, translated to paper. Space is depicted as three-dimensional by diminishing the size of objects that are further away.
