Why Artmaking is soooo good for you!
Great for the soul Art making, as Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, (we know knowledge is fundamental too) it is the key to problem solving and helps boost kids' social, emotional, creative, physical, linguistic and cognitive development...... and if that wasn't enough, it's fun!!!
