By participating in integrated art activities, children are able to utilize their observational skills to develop their sensory and comprehension abilities. These abilities enable children to learn independently, develop creativity, empathy, and assign meanings to other things. Children re-construct their previous knowledge by exploring new experiences with different visual materials, and form new ideas from repeated explorations.
Children develop their intelligence through systematic communication of symbols, which include language, activities, drawings, architecture, sculpture, cutting, pasting, drama playing, music, sports, etc. These communication methods can stimulate children’s communicative and creative abilities, and enable them to discover and express what they would like to know, understand, are unsure of, what they feel or imagine.
