"Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else."
- Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
Why fluid art for kids?
It encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities.
It allows children to process their world, deal with sometimes scary emotions, and gives them critical sensory input.
It is important for its own sake, as a source of beauty and self-expression, as well as simply for the process of creating.
It helps create a clearer and calmer mind as well as improved focus.
It encourages and increases imagination and creativity.
It is fun for kids and it is an activity they really enjoy.
Art is vital to families because it keeps everyone engaged and happy, but it is also a great way for kids to decompress and enjoy time by themselves.
“Research indicates that a child who is exposed to the arts acquires a special ability to think creatively, be original, discover, innovate, and create intellectual property—key attributes for individual success and social prosperity in the twenty-first century.” - International Child Art Foundation
