Children’s early years are a time of learning. But much more are also time of exploration, developing imagination and a sense of self. A wonderful way to explore, create and express oneself is through the visual arts. Parents and teachers can help their wards and students harness their innate abilities by providing a conducive atmosphere and platform for artistic engagement. Children love new experiences and to depict images and ideas based upon their experiences.
It is amazing to see Ewa Okikiolu engaged in her own creativity, smiling while applying colours on the drawn images of her and her brother, a set of twins playing football on a playground. She is so proud to share her art with the other kids across the globe.
