Should your kids do art this summer? Yes, because it is fun and builds confidence. But did you know it could impact their employment in the future?
Jobs of the future are going to require people to be more creative and adaptable. The more kids are exposed to art and working with their hands to be creative and solve problems, the more successful they can be in a future workforce where creativity is valued. That is a good thing because being creative is also something that brings joy to kids and most adults as well, if they take the time to do it.
One big problem is that schools around the world think that we need more math and technical skills, at the expense of things like art and creative thinking. Developmental benefits are lost when art and creative classes are taken away. From motor skills, decision making, and visual learning, taking away art impacts the success with other subjects. Plus, the future may contain a lot of technology, but it is the creative solutions and thinking that will be required.
