Why is drawing important and how can it support children’s learning?
Drawing helps people to understand, think, and communicate, to be creative and to do things. A picture can communicate an idea more effectively than words. Being able to express yourself through creating a drawing is a transferable skill, which can be used as a tool for teaching and learning across the curriculum. It can help children access their creativity, develop their imagination and enable them to express themselves.
