The Benefits Of Working With Clay
Manipulating clay helps children develop eye hand co-ordination as they pat and push the clay into shapes and objects. Clay also helps children develop the small muscles in their fingers and hands, known as fine motor skills as they pinch and squeeze the clay, adding detail to the forms they create. Working with clay promotes mental well being because it offers a fun and relaxing experience. Providing children with repeated experiences working with clay helps children to develop skills towards mastery. Skill development requires children do similar actives over and over. Children can then use clay as a medium to express their own ideas and life experiences through art making.
"My son attended Mrs. Post's online art class. She was so energetic and interactive with all the students! She gave everyone a chance to talk, express ideas, ask or answer questions, and show their work to others. She even played games and offered prizes to make learning more exciting! The clay supplies came with every single item that we needed was sent to us ahead of time, so I didn't have to worry about preparation. "
