The Benefits of Art
Emotions have a strong part in how we feel about ourselves and the world. Art provides a voice to express emotions and feelings, with or without words, by creating visual art forms than enable emotional expression.
The Right brain is developed though participation in art activities. Children should be exposed to the arts as their cognitive skills mature so that their right brain will be as developed as the left, so both hemispheres work in tandem, thus achieving the full potential of the mind.
Art furthers the students mind by encouraging creativity, cognitive development, and self expression, a way of expressing thoughts and allowing students to think for themselves.
Dexterity is developed as children gain better control over their hands, fingers, body, hand eye coordination and develop their motor skills.
Students learn to observe, describe, analyse and interpret.Arts introduce children to cultures from around the world and allows them to feel globally connected. Artistic expression also builds confidence. Students learn to do things in many different ways, as there is not just one right way to make art. Children gain greater thinking capacities.
Children develop concentration, patience, and perseverance as they are taught to follow various steps and instructions to get a final product or piece of work completed.
Fun and play are the most essential ways children learn. Children will develop their physical, mental and emotional skills and by meeting challenges will experience the success of artistic expression. There is not a better feeling than when a child says, “Look, I made this myself!”
Having fun is a cornerstone of childhood, and the value of fun is incorporated in creating art.
Creativity engages a number of mental processes, such as problem solving, idea generation, and comprehension. Making something from raw materials also comes with considerable personal rewards and a sense of accomplishment.

Benefits of Learning Circus Skills
The wonderful thing about circus workshops is that what has always seemed impossible when watching a performance becomes a reality for many people. Non-competitive games allow participants to develop in a group and allow people to form respect for others within that group, as all people are treated as equals.
It has become evident, through experience, that group work and respect give many people a wonderful boost to their self esteem. In addition to the above, circus skills offers physiological benefits in that it can improve fitness, while being fun and also can help people with poor attention. Juggling requires the participant to activate both the right and left sides of their brain, resulting in improved co-ordination.
Brain mechanics are a vital part in how we learn. When juggling, the juggler balances up the left and right brain. By facing challenges and risks, the brain builds new neuron pathways, and develops new learning abilities that apply to other areas of people’s lives.
Motor skills are developed by using hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.
Fitness is an important part of circus skills for every student. Learning circus skills means a regular exercise routine, which is part of life skills and creates a healthy lifestyle. Students learn about their body and how to live well.
Team building skills are required throughout every person’s life, whether team building leads to leadership roles or just being part of the team. Team building helps student’s work through problems and produce positive solutions. This develops healthy group relationship skills for individuals and promotes life skills.
Goal setting is required to divide skills into small steps; a process which requires commitment, practice and persistence. Challenges can be set to range from easy to hard. Appropriate goal setting allows for personal achievements to be recognised.
