Art, like language or music, is a means of expression. Opportunities for art are always a part of the classroom environment and not a special event. When children are able to choose art materials freely, they feel respected and satisfied with their abilities. Artistic expression helps the child to develop: art appreciation, eye/hand coordination, techniques in handling tools through the use of these materials, self construction, independence, self awareness, and self confidence. For the young child, creating art is more about the process and than the product.
