In part one of our blog series, we talked about a few things that you can do to foster a love of art in your home. Concluding in part two of our series, here are a few more tips of things you can do at home to help your child love art.

Visit a Museum

While there are plenty of ways for you to spend quality time with your child while they are at home, being able to encourage the gifts of a child who is artistically inclined is a truly rewarding experience. Being able to watch your child develop their skills as well as a deep rooted love for the arts can only benefit both you and them. Knowing that you helped your child reach their maximum potential is no doubt a good feeling, while your child will surely be grateful for being given the opportunity to indulge in their love of creative expression.

It’s been said that a way to develop as a writer is to read the writing of great writers. Using this logic, by exposing your child to the artwork of truly gifted artists can not only serve as inspiration for them, it can also drive them to achieve greatness themselves. Visiting an art museum is a great way to show your child the level of respect and reverence that great art is treated with, as well as showing them what can come of practice and determination.

Enroll Them In An Art Class

As we mentioned in our previous post, there’s no reason for your child’s creativity to be limited to the classroom. While we encourage creative development at the Academy of Arts and Knowledge, we also understand that the mind of a student can sometimes desire more than the average level of creative stimulation. If you find that your child is developing their artistic side at a rapid pace and is in need of more direction, enrolling them in an supplemental art class is an additional way to help them develop their love of art. Not only will they be able to grow as an artist outside of the classroom, they’ll be able to get further inspiration and direction from another instructor, giving them even more fuel to create.

Those are just a few more ways that you can help your child develop a love of art at home. The Academy of Arts and Knowledge aims to be Fort Collins’ premier performing arts school, providing our students with an environment that helps them grow creatively and reach their maximum potential.
