Importance of Art in Child Development


Vijaya Vaid is a Delhi-based renowned art curator, who has conducted several workshops in India and abroad. According to her, art education is meditative and is imperative for every parent to expose their child for this creative field. Art education also helps in the overall grooming of the child.


Art curator Vaid believes that while a child needs to learn science, math, and reading, art is also key to their development. At home, it’s a great time to connect with your child and encourage their creativity. In school, it’s a way for them to communicate and build confidence.



"Although some may regard art education as a luxury, simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up." says artist Vijaya Vaid in a workshop.
