The Importance of Art Classes in Children's Lives, Staten Island, New York

With such a heavy focus on math and science, it's easy to forget the importance of art classes in children's lives. Drawing and guitar lessons, for example, can help development, especially if started at a young age. DEA Music and Art believes in spending time learning arts and music at a summer camp. Located in Staten Island, NY, they notice impressive, positive changes in their students every single summer.

Enrolling your child in an art summer camp can help them improve in a variety of different ways.

  • art classesMotor Skills: Young children who participate in art classes may notice an improvement in their overall motor skills. Using your hands to create helps in body awareness and coordination. Classes that allow children to cut with scissors may see an even greater improvement, particularly in their writing ability later on.

  • Decision Making: In the act of creation, we are constantly making decisions and considering their effects. Young ones actively involved in art classes often develop sharper decision-making skills as well as problem-solving skills. If a child is presented with a square piece of paper, how can they go about turning it into a cube, or a sphere? Art introduces challenges, which helps young minds develop.

  • Academic Performance: Not only does drawing and music improve the creative side of the brain, but the academic side as well. Those who consistently engage in some form of arts at least three hours per day, three days per week, are four times more likely to achieve academic excellence.

Involving your child in art will help them develop into an intelligent, capable and well-rounded individual. One of the best ways to introduce them to their creativity is to enroll them in a summer camp, such as the one hosted by DEA Music and Art. For over ten years, they have provided an outstanding program for kids ages four through 12. For more information, or to enroll now, visit their website or call (718) 370-7733 today.
