It’s Youth Art Month
, Savvy Auntie! Promoting the arts in our nieces' and nephews' lives does much more for them than encourage expression. Did you know that studies have found that arts are jam packed full of the stuff our nieces and nephews need to succeed? Kids who are involved in the arts are more likely to study harder, get involved in student activities in school and win awards for their achievements. The arts can include music, dance, speech, acting and much more!
So let’s be Savvy Art Aunties this month and encourage our nieces and nephews to sing to the top of their lungs, get down on the floor and color with or whatever suits their passions best. We can also show them some savvy love and encouragement by displaying how proud we are of their masterpieces by catching them on video or displaying their artwork on our fridge doors or framing it up and hanging it on the wall.
