The Calming Power of Art

Art can provide families with an incredible way to slow down and find calm in the chaos of day-to-day life. As a mom of three and a former preschool teacher, I have had so many opportunities to witness the power of art with my own family at home and in my classroom. Beyond just helping your child develop creativity, art has numerous other benefits including strengthening fine motor skills, providing your child with calming, sensory input, encouraging independence, and promoting problem-solving and resilience.
