Unfortunately, many artistically inclined children find few resources readily available to them at school or at afternoon programs, with athletics taking front and center in funding and participation. Parents tuned in to their child’s creative needs may need to get “creative” themselves, seeking out the right resources and activities. Here are a few ideas to get your little Michelangelo or Martha Graham on the right track.
What kind of toys are they drawn to? What do they like to do in their spare time? Paying close attention to their leisure time may reveal clues about their artistic interests. Those doodles on the Etch-a-Sketch, carefully placed blocks, or extraordinary sculptures in Play-Doh may hint at a future masterpiece. Who knows, all that banging on the highchair could be the beginnings of the next Ringo Starr.
