Fantastic ideas for getting kids excited about participating in the arts

Dear readers,

Aaron Thompson (aaront@openeducators.org) has shared the following websites with me.

He writes, “Creative arts—whether visual- or performance-based—have all kinds of benefits for people of all ages, but did you know they offer unique advantages to children? I think it’s really important that children be encouraged to express themselves creatively, whether through music, painting, performing skits, writing, or anything in between!

Since it seems like you’re just as passionate about the arts, I thought you may like to add these great resources to one of your website’s pages, as they offer some great ideas for getting kids to channel their inner artists.”
