Children love to be artists, all children are creative. Their education, i.e. what we grown-ups do, has a strong influence on whether they remain like that. If you leave children to decide for themselves, they will always retain their liking for art and will remain creative, because it allows them to learn, they discover and investigate. Children also use their arts activities to express their thoughts and feelings. In this way art also serves children as a means for working through their experiences.
