" Art cannot be taught, it comes from thinking. But it can be improved by practice."

Arts and crafts describes a wide variety of activities involving making things with one"s own hands. Arts and crafts is usually a hobby. Some crafts (art skills) have been practised for centuries, others are more recent inventions.Arts and crafts are really important for children from a very young age (even a one year old can enjoy finger painting) and it remains important long after they can read and write.On a deep level, art is a form of communication, it is another way of expressing ourselves and our emotions and it can help with processing feelings and experiences.And perhaps less deep, but equally important, art and craft sessions allow children to gain self confidence, belief in their abilities and to learn through play.
