Benefits of Process Art for Preschoolers


Art allows children to express their creativity, solve problems, enhance fine motor skills, and so much more. Process art is focused on creating, not the final product. You are not directing children to make anything specific. In fact, they are directing themselves. Every piece of artwork that is considered “process art” will look different, even when the same material is used. Process art is great for supporting children to make their own choices, take risks, and feel successful when they finish their peace of art. Language skills are also developed when children discuss what they made and how they did it. The beauty of process art is that there is no right or wrong way to explore and create art. The final work is always unique and original. These are some benefits of the process art:

  • The experience of creating process art is relaxing and calming
  • Development of Fine Motor Skills
  • Development of Problem-Solving Skills
  • Process Art allows children to be creative and build confidence
