Art for the Young Child
Department or Administrative Unit
The modern school is no longer satisfied with teaching just the basic skills. Scientific studies in child development have proved that today's school must be concerned with the development of the whole child. When we consider a child's development we must necessarily think of the areas in which he naturally grows: socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Can art in the classroom be justified as an integral part of an individual's whole development?
