    Maria is a teacher from Canada who has been heading Nursery class at OC for the last three years. She has always been very creative and this year she’s delighted to widen our children’s experience by opening up their potential in Art.

    It’s well known that fostering creativity won’t just increase your child’s chances of becoming the next Picasso, but it also enriches mental, social and emotional development.

    As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. By counting pieces and colors, they learn the basics of math. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science.

    Most important perhaps, is when children feel good while they are creating. Art helps boost self-confidence. Children who feel able to experiment freely and are not worried about making mistakes invent new ways of thinking, which extends well beyond the craft room.
