I believe that children’s art is a language all its own. It expresses their ideas, feelings, creativity and a pure sense of their world. Through viewing children’s art, one may gain an insight into a child’s developmental and cognitive level, as well as to their likes and dislikes, their discoveries and interests and their internal self. Art provides a universal language which we all speak, made up of lines, shapes, color, and spatial organization. There is a beauty, freshness and honesty that is set before us as we experience the unique artwork of the young. The experience of art making provides children the opportunity to learn about themselves and others, take risks and experiment, learn to respond and reflect and gain a vast array of knowledge
through the various skills used.
