Creative kids

Artist Vernon Ah Kee shares some ideas to support artistic curiosity and creativity in children.

Children are naturally creative. As a parent, you support your child to be creative and learn through art and craft activities.

This can start with:

  • what is immediately around them
  • their home
  • their family.

If you are supportive, and engage with little ones as they express their ideas and try out new techniques, they will develop the confidence to continue.
