Craft and design is usually taken for granted as an entitlement for students and young people in education. Art and craft activities are not only fun and interactive but it also aids them in learning and remembering new things. Art creates the zeal among students to learn about colors, shapes, sizes textures and also provides them an early and fun way to begin with their numeracy development.
Art and Craft also develops the listening skills of a child as they listen to their teacher and try to understand the guidelines provided by them. Art also helps in growing a student’s vocabulary and use of grammatical words. With the help of Art and Craft, children learn to express themselves with the help of their imagination. When a child is provided with the freedom to explore their ideas, they come up with the most creative plan. It also allows them to experiment with various materials and invent new ideologies to achieve an outcome which stands out. Art not only develops a child mentally but also physically like cutting, holding a brush etc are basic things which are essential in growing a child’s motor skills and hand-eye coordination. There are several career opportunities for students inclined towards arts and crafts like Fashion Designing, Art directing, graphic designing and many other options to choose from. Art and Craft builds self confidence in taking on future tasks and also encourage problem solving as a trait in them.
