Sense of Pride and Achievement - It is a joy and personal achievement, it reflects their hard work. This is achieved in any art class as the creativity is individual based and is not mechanical or routine oriented. Child is not bound to rules and has freedom to think and act.

Cultural and history understanding – a child is connected to his roots and culture strongly and intimately. It becomes the duty of adult as parent or as teacher to nourish this also. To understand history or art of any country or region we see their art or go to respective country’s art museum. It’s easier to connect, see, and appreciate it. Children are the carrier of our culture.

Communication and expression – Art has no language barrier, without verbal or use of words we can express and yet communicate. Colours have their own fantasies and fairy tales behind them. If the painting class provides the child with all the right things then there is scope for healthy way of expressing and communicating.
