LEARN TO BE HANDS-ON

BOOST SCIENCE/MATHS

Painting with giant
balls is a favourite
ARTventurers activity

Children learn by using their senses
and so the sensory, hands-on nature
of art makes it a great tool.
It's a way of learning about the world
by 'doing' - using and mixing paint
colours, drawing and painting objects
and animals, trying out tools and
materials at ARTventurers classes and
exploring textures. Sensory stimulation
is also vital for brain development.

Children who regularly participate
in art activities may become better at
reading, maths and science.
Think about colour mixing, mosaic
patterns and bubble painting - these can
all stimulate your ARTventurer's basic
maths, geometry and science skills.

SOLVE PROBLEMS

Art helps to develop creative
thinking and problem-solving abilities
- from choosing which colour paint to
use, to what size cut they want to make
in a sheet of paper and how they are
going to make their imagined creation
spring into reality.
It's always fascinating to watch the
ARTventurers measuring, pouring, trying
things out and seeing what happens, all
in a safe, secure and social environment.

first term at ARTventurers,

MEET NEW PEOPLE

Art is such a lovely social activity
because it's inclusive and open to all.
Adopting a free and open-ended
approach to art and creative play means
that many children of differing ages and
abilities can join in and interact together.
ARTventurers classes create an
opportunity to make lots of new friends
- children and parents alike!

Don't worry
about the mess

TAKE ART
Here are ARTventurers' five top
tips when introducing your little
artist to paint at home...
Think BIG! Get some large
sheets of paper for kids to work
on - rolls of lining paper or
leftover wallpaper are ideal
Make sure your paint is nontoxic and suitable for use with
young children - or try mixing up
some edible paint from cornflour,
there are lots of recipes online
Be prepared for the inevitable
mess. Cover your surfaces and
floor with something wipeable,
like an old shower curtain or
plastic tablecloth, to protect
them - and stripping your baby
or toddler right down to a nappy
makes cleaning up much easier.
With young children, painting
on the floor rather than seated at
a table gives them the space and
freedom to move and get their
whole bodies involved
Join in with your child's activity
- babies and young children learn
by watching other people.
If you get stuck in, then they
will be curious and copy you by
making marks of their own as well
Unless your little one is very
anxious about getting paint on
their hands, ditch the brush and
let them use their fingers instead.
This allows them the freedom to
investigate and explore the lovely
colours and texture of paint.

9

CONCENTRATE MORE

Art is a productive activity and, as
it's open ended, your little artist is
unlikely to get frustrated and walk off!
If a child is enjoying a bright, colourful
activity, it's common sense that they will
want to spend more time on it. This
comes back to the 'hands-on' approach
to learning that art embodies.

10

HAVE A FUN TIME

The wide smiles stretching the
ARTventurers' faces when they are at
their weekly class say it all!
Above all else, the important thing is
to give your child the space and time to
be creative and let them take the lead.
Keep a box full of bits and pieces on
hand at home (there's a great blog post
on artventurers.co.uk all about putting
together a Magic Craft Box to whip out
on rainy days) - and try not to stress. If
the sun is shining, take the mess outside.
Creative activities are not simply
feel-good things - they help your child
to develop intellectually, physically and
socially. So get out the paint, glitter and
glue... and get busy!
