Art develops life skills

Communication skills: Art goes beyond verbal language to communicate feelings that might not otherwise be expressed.  Children communicate visually when they draw or paint a picture.
Problem-Solving Skills: When children explore art ideas, they test possibilities and work through challenges, to find solutions.  
Social & Emotional Skills: Through art, children practice sharing and taking turns, as well as appreciating one another's efforts. Art fosters positive mental health by allowing a child to show individual uniqueness as well as success and accomplishment, all part of a positive self-concept. 
Fine Motor Skills: Holding a paintbrush so that it will make the desired marks, drawing with a crayon, snipping paper with scissors into shapes, or squeezing glue in a controlled manner from a bottle all help develop a child's fine motor skills and control of materials.
Self-Expression and Creativity: Creating art allows children to work through feelings and emotions.  Referring to a finished piece of artwork helps a child talk about feelings in a new and meaningful way. Art also develops a child's creativity. Rather than being told what to do, answers and directions come from the child. Art is an experience that requires freethinking, experimentation, and analysis - all part of creativity.
