Benefits that Last a Lifetime

Did you know that art develops a child’s creative thinking and problem-solving abilities?

Children love making things and this artistic outlet will foster more than just the creative aspects of development in children… it strengthens right-brain development, open-ended thinking, problem-solving, self-expression which leads to increasing your child’s self-esteem.

Artistic activity is a form of reasoning, communication and organization, drawing on abstract thinking and perception.  As our DinoArt artists create through drawing, painting and composing images, they stimulate and develop key cognitive functions essential in child development.

DinoArt offers significant benefits in child development including:

  • Develop creativity, conceptual thinking and spatial awareness
  • Improve focus and concentration
  • Improve problem solving
  • Academic benefits include attention to detail, multi-tasking
  • Strengthen dexterity and fine-motor skills
  • Improve social skills

Creativity through art stimulates mental acuity

Do you still remember how great it felt when as a youngster you drew or painted a picture of your house in the spring or a favourite pet? Why did that feel good? Because you were tapping into your creative self, where creative skills flowed through your mind, developing visual manifestations of abstract ideas. Creativity is an essential part of intelligence.

Children love making things and this artistic outlet will foster more than just the creative aspects of development in children – it strengthens right-brain development, open-ended thinking, self-expression and it will strengthen your child’s self-esteem.

Our brain is divided into two hemispheres. The left one is responsible for reading, writing, arithmetic and science, rational and analytical thought. And the right hemisphere controls imagination, visual and spatial perception. It is dominant in art, music and physical movement.

Children learn best when both sides of their brains are stimulated.  Art enrichment through DinoArt provides that type of stimulations that boosts brain-power.

Creativity in art is an important skill that is invaluable at school, work, and everyday life.
