An art exhibit featuring artists as young as 3 years old
The kids are little but this art show is big! Big in heart, that is.

There's an art exhibit coming up this November showcasing the art of mini artists as young as 3 years old.

Maya Angelou said: "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have!"

Come celebrate the works of our mini artists. Exhibit runs until 31 January, 2020

The community likewise benefits in exposing young children to art appreciation. Everyone has creativity, it's simply a matter of developing it!

Benefits of art

Art is not only fun, it brings so many benefits and life skills ranging from physical (fine motor skills), mental, social and emotional to name a few:

In life, we encounter different situations that need out of the box solutions. Creativity develops problem-solving skills and resourcefulness. Kids learn perseverance in accomplishing an art piece, learn to concentrate and focus, discover that they can communicate their feelings and thoughts without using words and best of all, it builds self-confidence.

The exhibit aims to foster creativity in children, but more importantly, communicates the value placed on a child. At the end of the day, the art kids produce is so much a part of them that seeing it displayed on a wall brings incalculable worth.

Four year old Mr. I, happily works on his Van Gogh inspired Starry Night with a bunny watching over the town below. See this completed painting at the exhibit and be inspired to help your child make their own version.

Little Mr. T is all smiles as he holds up his work. He captures the colours of autumn, with him kicking up the autumn leaves for even more fun!

Kids love colour and enjoy exploring what their little hands can create. Art opens their world to a bigger colourful world of imagination and creativity.

If your child enjoys art, bring them to get inspired and get their creative juices flowing!
