Art activities

Learn about yourself and the world with an arts program!

Extracurricular activities and programs can help further develop your child’s learning experiences. There are a number of art programs available in your area, throughout the school year and into the summer. Performing and visual arts programs run during the week and on weekends, as well as throughout March and summer breaks. Whatever your time frame, you have a wide variety of options to choose from.

In order to get the most out of your child’s art program you need to choose the activity wisely. Pick an area of the arts that your child is excited about and interested in. Allow your child to help you choose the activity. When they are excited about participating they will be motivated, which will help them succeed.

Emphasize that the priority is for your child to have fun and try their best. When they do this, the learning benefits will come naturally. Remember to balance your child’s extracurricular activities with their educational responsibilities so that they don’t feel stressed or burned out.
