Art is very important, it’s all around us. It’s impossible to live in this world without seeing an artist’s creation, or some aspect of art. It allows everybody to express themselves, art doesn’t stereotype or discriminate or hate, and without it, the world would be just plain and dull.
There are many special days that we celebrate every year. We have Peace day, Women’s Day, Valentine’s day, Mother’s Day, Worker’s day and so on. However, we don’t have that “one” special art day that would unite the world. Fortunately, art authorities organized and voted April 15 as the “World Art Day”. Interestingly enough it is also the birthday of the famous artist Leonardo da Vinci.
This coming World Art Day, show your appreciation to art through these free printables that would surely make the event more meaningful, and serve as a tribute to the world’s best artists.
Art activities help our children’s social and emotional development. Children learn about themselves and others through various art activities. It is their opportunity to show their uniqueness through art and allow them to express happiness, pride, and joy.

What’s most important is that they can feel that you are engaged and supportive with their art projects.
