4 Reasons why Painting is Great for Kids

Numerous articles and studies have shown why is art is beneficial for kids. We'll talk about 4 great benefits of having your kids learn to paint.

1) Develops their creativity
All arts including painting allow kids to express themselves creatively. If children have practice thinking creatively, it will come naturally to them now and in their future. 

2) Visual processing and memory
Painting helps develop visual-spatial skills. These skills help kids analyze what they see and make choices based on visual cues. Creating art also assists with developing working memory, mental flexibility and self-control skills. 

3) Confidence & Focus
Mastering skills, completing art projects, and learning to express themselves in new ways helps kids gain confidence and perseverance. Concentrating on finishing a painting for long periods also develops focus and longer attention spans.

4) Improves Academic Performance
Americans for the Arts states that young people who participate regularly in the arts (three hours a day on three days each week through one full year) are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement than children who do not participate.
