For All The Young Picassos In the Making: Arts and Craft Classes for Kids in KL and Selangor

Published by SchoolAdvisor | Apr 30, 2021

Art is not just messy colourful doodles, it can be more than that. If you see from a young age, your child has had the habit of scribbling on papers (or walls even), you might be seeing Picasso in the making.

Art plays an important role in a child's development. Art does not only help them to develop their creativity, but it also helps them to engage with their surroundings better which in turn helps to enhance their communication skills.

As schools these days are more focused on science and technology, parents should encourage the creative side of their children from home by sending them to learn from professionals.

Art is not limited to painting and drawing like what most people would know. Arts come in many forms such as pottery, sculpture, ceramics, mosaics, crafts and architecture. These are called visual arts and they usually can be seen and touched by the naked eye.

If you see arts and crafts as something your child should pursue either professionally or to fill their free time, these are some of arts and crafts classes in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor that you can try:
