Children are naturally inclined to manifest their feelings and emotions (without really noticing it themselves) through their drawings, sketches, paintings, and even photos they would show with interest. A recent study suggests that there are more to it than just your regular landscape from your little artist.
A significant meaning of such artistry might be associated with their wellbeing. Most children associate nature and outdoor spaces, such as grass, trees, gardens, parks, outdoor playgrounds, or sunlight to be their happy place. It tells us the connectedness of nature and how children perceive their wellbeing. It is important to be aware of this interconnectedness of nature (as imagined in arts) and a child’s wellbeing, especially in these challenging times where most are deprived of such.
So next time your little ones show you one of their landscape masterpieces, why not bring them there to see and experience the actual thing.
