Many public schools are seeing a significant decrease in funding for arts education. This means children are not exposed to creative arts, music, theater, and other fundamental parts of their curriculum that are designed to build confidence and encourage self-expression. At Discoverie by Vinci School in Mountain Lakes, we encourage your child to become involved in creative self-expression through our Creative Learning and Creative Curriculum. We believe that arts education matters and can make a difference in your child’s life.

Why is Art Important?

Art teaches that other perspectives matter. What one person focuses on in a painting may be completely different than what another sees as the main focus. This helps teach them that other opinions matter – that there may not be one right answer to a question. Art helps develop your children’s imaginations in a safe way. They’re given the freedom to use their imagination either in drama, or in arts and crafts, helping to develop their creative problem-solving skills. Furthermore, it teaches them self-confidence in their own opinions, encouraging participation in discussion.

What You Can Do

While Discoverie by Vinci School in Mountain Lakes will do everything we can to encourage creativity in the classroom, the creativity doesn’t have to end once your child goes home for the day. Consider having arts and crafts set up at home. Simple shreds of paper and glue sticks can turn into beautiful collages while crayons and scrap paper can turn into brightly colored works of art. Sit down with your child and ask them to show you how to do the crafts they learned in school. They’ll benefit from using their imagination outside the classroom and develop confidence in their skills when they teach you what they learned!
