Arts and crafts are great ways to help your kids express themselves and develop various life skills. Painting is a specific art form that allows for creative expression and helps develop patience, confidence, and perspective.
All I can remember from my trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts as a little girl is being bored. I was being led around the place by teachers who were trying to drive home points about artists I barely knew. But a recent trip left me feeling like the museum is really reaching out to us and making the experience fantastic for individuals, families and even children.
