Art Education: Need among Children and Adolescents
Art education helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness.
Art education plays a crucial role in allowing individuals to explore various means of communication. By engaging in art, individuals are encouraged to express their creativity and develop a keen sense of observation towards their environment. Through art, individuals become aware of the diverse art forms present in their surroundings and community, and they gain skills in experimenting and exploring different tools, instruments, and materials.
Moreover, art education fosters the development of aesthetic sensibilities, allowing individuals to appreciate and understand the beauty and value of artistic expression. It also cultivates respect for social values and cultural heritage, as individuals learn to recognize the significance of art within different cultural contexts.
Some of the art forms are:

Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
