Why art and culture are important in your child's life
When children encounter art and culture in their everyday lives, they are better able to develop a wide range of important qualities in their lives. Arts and culture are not just about performers and spectators. Arts and culture shape, educate and give us outlook and identity. It is through arts and culture, media, theatre, film, visual arts, storytelling and music, among others, that we create our identity as individuals and as participants in communities across social and ethnic divides.
The opportunity to participate in the arts and cultural life is an important part of children's upbringing. But arts and culture do not come naturally. That's why we need to make an active effort to introduce our youngest children to it. Curiosity must be aroused through special experiences that open up children's senses, imagination and creativity. Art and culture provide experiences, impressions and opportunities for expression, as a very valuable part of what our day care can offer children. Art and culture create an understanding of our history and our roots. Through art and culture, children come together and share experiences, experiences and joy of life. Knowledge of artistic and cultural expressions helps to develop children's imagination, nuance their world view and broaden their horizons.
