Arts and Crafts explained

Regular arts and crafts activities can help children cultivate a range of personal and interpersonal skills, which will prove invaluable later on in life. First we must define and differentiate between art activities and craft activities. Arts are an open-ended, less structured activity with no predefined goal. Art usually involves a variety of materials with no set instructions and the idea is to express oneself through free creation. Craft activities on the other hand require more specific materials, are more structured and have a pre-defined goal - like the building of a birdhouse for instance. Arts and crafts can be combined to effectively reach certain developmental goals in children. According to Eric Erickson, in Childhood and Society, the development fields of children ages five to twelve fall into 4 main categories: cognitive (thinking), emotional (feeling), social (relating) and sensory-motor (coordinating). Arts and crafts activities touch all of these developmental areas. Lets examine how. Cognitive skills include the ability to process new information, find solutions and, make decisions - all of which are required when experimenting with and assembling different materials to create something new and decorating projects. Art is the result of self-expression and creativity, which is caused by emotions. Art activities can help children handle stress and provides an outlet for their feelings. Using different materials also provides stimulation of the five senses and teaches a healthy outlet for pleasure and satisfaction. The result of an arts and crafts project can make a child proud and help boost confidence. Arts and crafts also encourage social interaction and communication between children as many projects require more than 2 hands and materials must be shared. Group arts and crafts projects can encourage friendships, relationship building and helpfulness. Less verbal children can manoeuvre more comfortably in a less verbal and more physical environment. Last but not least, children’s coordination can be improved by regularly engaging in art and craft activities. Managing and assembling different materials trains the fine motor skills and eye hand coordination. Art activities, which primarily activate the right hemisphere of the brain, are most strongly with emotional developmental while craft activities, which activate the left hemisphere of the brain are associated with cognitive, social and coordination skills. This is why we at Pritt are proud to present the large range of educational crafting projects that we feature on our website.

工艺品解释

常规工艺美术活动可以帮助孩子培养个人和人际关系技巧,在以后的生活中,这将是无价之宝。首先我们必须定义和区分艺术活动和工艺活动。艺术是一个开放式的,少结构化活动没有预定义的目标。艺术通常涉及各种各样的材料没有设置指令,这个想法是为了表达自己通过自由创造。工艺活动,另一方面需要更具体的资料,更结构化的和有一个预定义的目标——比如禽舍建设为例。工艺品可以组合有效地达到一定的发展目标。

根据埃里克·埃里克森在童年和社会,五至十二岁的儿童的发展领域可分为4大类:认知(思维),情感(情绪)、社会(相关的)和感觉器官(协调)。工艺美术活动联系所有这些发展地区。让我们看看。

认知能力包括处理新信息的能力,找到解决方案,做出决定——所有这一切都是试验和组装时需要不同的材料来创造一些新的东西和装饰项目。

艺术是自我表达和创造力的结果,这是由情绪引起的。艺术活动可以帮助孩子处理压力和为他们的感情提供了一个渠道。使用不同的材料还提供了五种感官的刺激和教健康快乐和满足的出口。一个工艺品项目的结果可以让孩子感到骄傲,并帮助提振信心。


工艺品也鼓励孩子们之间的社会互动和沟通许多项目需要超过2手和材料必须共享。组工艺品项目可以促进友谊,关系构建和乐于助人。少言语的孩子可以操作空间更舒适更少的语言和更多的物理环境。

最后但并非最不重要,孩子们的协调可以通过定期从事艺术和工艺改进的活动。管理和装配不同的材料培养精细运动技能和眼手协调能力。

主要艺术活动,激活大脑的右半球,最强烈情感发育而工艺活动,激活了大脑的左半球与认知、社会和协调能力。
