Oscar is delighted to be working with you, and considering his Autism I am doubly amazed at the concentrated work you have engendered from him. Very very happy.

How is art beneficial to my child’s development?

Visual Art is an essential element of a complete & balanced education …. and it’s a whole lot of fun!

The Arts prepare kids for school, work & life. Visual Arts helps foster creativity, innovation & determination. It also plays a unique role in boosting learning & achievement.

When the quality of Art Education is high the following skills are enhanced:

  • Problem Solving
  • Decision Making
  • Creative Thinking
  • Increased Self Esteem
  • Increased Self Discipline
  • Articulating Ideas
  • Imagining
  • Accepting Responsibility
  • Language, Literacy & Cognitive Skills

” The arts teach children that problems can have more than one solution & that questions have more than one answer”  Elliot W. Eisner
