1. Some people view creative arts education as a luxury and

do not help with the building blocks of child development.
In your opinion, what are the benefits for children who are
engaged in creative arts in school?

The performing art is necessary for the teacher to involve it during the
lesson for the children. They tend to have promoted cognitive, motor,
and social development to boot (Savacool, 2017). There are several
educational benefits of engaging children in drama, movement and
music activities. Firstly, they become a master of their anxiety, children
become nervous when they have to speak in front of their friends, so it
gives kids a leg up in those big life moments. Secondly, they express
those making new emotions. It is a very safe way for kids to try out
certain feelings and take ownership of them while playing the role of
someone else. Thirdly, they see the world in new ways, like it gives
kids an awareness about themselves and creative skills theyd never
learn otherwise.
