Art-integrated learning for holistic development

Imagine a place where you introduce your child to colourful things and not just books. Fill the child’s surroundings with things that he/she can pick and start playing, and it’s even better when the child starts learning the concepts of the things around him/her. Introduction to art and crafts can be a great start in getting kids involved in a variety of concepts without the pressure of inducing forced concepts. It evokes the child’s curiosity; it lets them think, interpret, ask questions and come to a solution.
Holistic learning is having an in-depth understanding of the surroundings where the child is looking around and adapting, the child is absorbing all that he is seeing and doing. It starts from evoking all the five senses of the body, seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, tasting, and it later goes into crawling, walking, eating food and starting to hold things in hand. This process of learning and adapting goes on till the age of five, and it then keeps on evolving as they grow older, meet people, make friends. Especially when the journey of the school begins, teachers are involved in school and parents mostly neglect giving time and working with the child’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of adapting. Kids are majorly involved in the concept of traditional studying in India, but Fevicreate is here to break the stereotypes of traditional studying. We believe in making the learning experience a fun session where they are engaged and involved in understanding themselves better.
The Fevicreate website has tons of projects for kids with early learning like motor skills for hands, introduction to colours, our range of playdough and many other projects that are further divided into different age groups starting from the age of five to adults who are indirectly involved in teaching the kids and help them in crafting, drawing and various skills.

How does art help in building holistic development?

  1. Problem-solving

If the child is creating some art and craft project, even though it may seem difficult for the child, she may not leave it halfway. Completing the process is important but the outcome of every child is going to be different. Kids see the world differently and their way of thinking always amazes the adults around them. 

     2. Play-based learning

For a child, it’s just a fun activity but it’s like hitting two targets with one arrow. A kid’s curious nature puts them in a situation of asking questions. They also tend to remember it better because they are the ones directly involved than any other external pressure of mugging up or being forced to learn something. 

   3. Developing motor skills

The constant usage of their hands for cutting precisely, painting or colouring or folding papers helps them to refine their motor skills. Initially, they won't be perfect but they will surely get better with everyday practice and learning.

    5.Social and emotional learning

 Social and emotional learning has got to do more with interaction; you don’t want your child to be sitting in one corner and not doing anything. Along with being curious and asking questions, they also learn how to interact among their friends and how to emotionally be there for them. 

   6. Boosts creativity

Being surrounded by papers, colours and many other stationery items, it’s an obvious thing that your child's level of creativity will be more vivid and imaginative. 

   7. Sense of duty

When a child picks up colours from the drawer, they should always put the things back to where they picked them from. Learning how and where things are and understanding how everything is in place and everything should be in its place creates a sense of duty to put back the things from where they picked it after completing a certain creative task.

When we look at all these points, we can understand how these minuscule things that seem easy help build up a child’s character and shapes them into adulthood, be it the values, manners, creativity and many other aspects that range from being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually involved. Art and craft enhance their thought process and ability to think and imagine better. Fevicreate ensures that studying is a fun process. Being able to do your craft and a little help from adults takes them on a long self-journey to be moulded into better human beings. As our motto goes ‘Learning by doing,’ we will only know about things when we start doing and after we are done we are left with an experience that will only help us to get better.
