Young at Art

Unfortunately, many artistically inclined children find few resources readily available to them at school or at afternoon programs, with athletics taking front and center in funding and participation. Parents tuned in to their child’s creative needs may need to get “creative” themselves, seeking out the right resources and activities. Here are a few ideas to get your little Michelangelo or Martha Graham on the right track.
If your child’s school doesn’t offer the programs he or she needs to get their creative juices flowing, seek them out elsewhere at local centers and organizations that offer workshops and activities geared around the arts. Finding dance or drawing classes outside their normal social sphere allows kids to branch out and find a community of other budding artists who share their passion. Kids get some of their best knowledge from other peers, and an enthusiastic talented group of youngsters is a good place to start.
