IS POTTERY THE LATEST TREND IN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES?
In recent years there has been a great deal of research about the importance of art and creative activities such as pottery in child development. Kids are born naturally creative and inquisitive; they are usually full of energy, and as they grow, their need to express themselves only gets stronger. By introducing art into their routines, kids will be happier, more expressive, and overall, better mentally.
Art techniques such as pottery can lead to children to greater levels of self-expression and imagination. “Working with clay teaches values such as perseverance, patience and self-confidence”, the owners of Cuit Ceramic acknowledge. It also comes with a whole range of health and mental benefits, including better coordination and stronger problem solving skills.
Creating and working with our hands truly helps blossom creatively, no matter our age, and has a direct relationship with well-being.
