Learning Benefits of Painting

Painting allows children to express their creativity and have fun. Developing a skill like painting provides the stimulus children need to be successful in all aspects of life.

Painting gives children the chance to…

• Enhance their self confidence and feeling of belonging (e.g about appearance, hair, eye and skin colour)
• Represent experiences that they might not be able to verbalise. They may draw pictures out of proportion ,exaggerating things that are important to them.
• Work together, learn to share, to interact with others, to be responsible for clean up, and to put materials away.
