Art is an important part to a child's development. Through art they learn to create and manipulate materials in a way that expresses their ideas in a different form than play does.
Collaborative art is a form of art that allows children the opportunity to work together as a team. This team building activity opens children up to sharing their different life and cultural experiences. By sharing these experiences children see and learn that everyone has similarities and differences and that everyone's contributions should be accepted equally.
By working as a team, incorporating all shared ideas in some way and accepting each other for who they are is evident in the completed collaborative art product.
