Art has been proven to assist in children’s concentration levels and attention spans. When your child is engrossed in an art project their focus is intense. They are not distracted by external elements like television or games. Developing this level of concentration will assist in other areas of life where a significant amount of focus is required. Attending art classes will have children interacting with other students, this opens up many new social possibilities as well as developing the child’s communication and social skills. The importance of encouragement and praise should also not be overlooked in the development of a young person’s personality. Children feel a huge sense of accomplishment when they complete an artwork. When they are congratulated for their efforts they receive a boost to their confidence levels and self-esteem.
Lee Chabot owner and artist of Chabot Studio & Fine Art Gallery winner of the Best of RI award and Donald Chabot an award-winning art teacher with 40 years of experience in teaching young children will teach the art classes. Other experience teachers may participate in some of the classes.
