Think Outside the Box
Art is such a limitless field. Classical art forms like ballet, painting, and piano are ideal, but in this day and age, there are some fabulous niche fields your child could explore. From manga, comics, or zine creation, to paddle carving, to contemporary dance, to different kinds of animation or filmmaking—there are so many ways kids can express themselves.
No matter what art form you choose, ensure your child is able to express themselves. Whether he’s learning pinch pot clay sculpture or plotting a scene, he can be challenged to think creatively. A good class will balance technical teaching with the freedom to choose. When he knows what the box is, he will know how to jump outside of it.
