Kids Art Exhibition

Kids Art Exhibition

"Educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities and that it can be used effectively to teach and understand other key subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science. Therapists tell us that art is valuable because it allows children to process their world, to deal with sometimes scary emotions in a safe way, and because it gives them critical sensory input. Artists tell us that art is important for its own sake—as a source of beauty and expression, as well as simply for the process of creating. Kids tell us that art is fun, an activity they enjoy. Parents tell us that art is vital to their families because it keeps everyone engaged and happy and helps with the sometimes difficult transitions of the day." (from the Artful parent if you want to read more why art is beneficial for kids)

A beginners guide to rock painting

A beginners guide to rock painting

These days rock painting has become a way of expressing yourself on a small and natural canvas that is fun and versatile. It is an activity that adults and kids enjoy and the beauty of it is that it usually takes you outdoors to search for your rocks. The other great qualities of rock painting is the ease of passing on your artworks as small gifts and tokens of love, whether to a stranger or to a loved one. The small surface is less intimidating than a canvas and you can easily finish a small rock work-of-art in a short sitting and have something you can be proud of.

Art is a great healer.

Tyler from our community has kindly shared with us her story of how she got into art, why she was attracted to the easy art tools like Watercolour Pens, and how it helps her manager the pain from her autoimmune disease.
