“The important thing is to create” – Pablo Picasso.
All children possess great creative potential and art is especially important. Art encompasses all developmental domains within a child’s development and lends itself to physical development and the enhancement of fine and gross motor skills. Art activities also support children’s social and emotional development, they learn about themselves and others through art. Most importantly, art provides an opportunity for children to make a personal statement about their uniqueness, allowing them to express emotions like happiness, joy, and pride. We believe at Luna Park Preschool that art is an important tool for helping to build a positive self-identity and is offered every day in a variety of mediums and materials. The personal and creative triumphs of each individual child are always highly cherished, celebrated and prominently displayed.
