Importance of Arts and Craft in School Curriculum

Arts and craft as a subject in the school curriculum are typically taken for granted as a must for children and young kids in the formal education setup.

There is no doubt that arts and crafts are fun activities for kids. Be it coloring with crayons or making miniature statues from clay, folding paper to create fine origami or designing a handmade birthday card, there are several arts and crafts activities, which can enhance the interest of the children and exploit their artistic potential.
