To many parents, a “sense of beauty” might only refer to the ability to appreciate visual art pieces. In fact, a “sense of beauty”, namely “aesthetic”, indicates someone’s ability to discover all forms of beauty. “Aesthetic” is an innate ability that needs to be constantly nurtured and built up upon. Intentional training has a big impact on childrens’ learning in many aspects, including lifestyle, skillset, personality, emotional expressiveness and mental maturity. As a parent, you might want to know more about how aesthetic training contributes to quality childhood education. ILK Learning is here to introduce 5 aspects that aesthetic training enhances to achieve quality childhood education.

  • Health and Physical Wellness

    By encouraging discovering beauty in daily life, aesthetic training encourages children to connect with nature and form a healthier lifestyle. One of the major themes of aesthetic training is related to mother nature. Living in the urban setting in this digital era, we are surrounded by technology in our everyday routines. While technology becomes an inseparable aspect of life, getting in touch with nature is of utmost importance for children’s well-being. By learning how to appreciate and find joy in nature, children are trained to balance and maintain a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

  • Perspective-taking Skill

    Aesthetic training emphasizes on seeing things from different perspectives. It develops children’s mindset to take on others’ opinions with a multi-dimensional core value system. Taking different points of view assists children in handling challenges more rationally and confidently, hence turning them into better problem-solvers in the future.
  • Diverse Abilities

    Learning hard, practical STEAM skills like coding, science and mathematics in trend in the digital age now. However, soft skills and art-based knowledge are also important for comprehensive quality education. No matter how advanced the technology is, human factors and art senses are things that technology cannot replace. It is in fact, the bridging element between technology and users. Aesthetic training nurtures children to be all-rounded and increases their competitiveness.
  • Personality Development

    Did you know? The design of a textbook can affect how children feel about studying. To children, a neat layout might be very boring and rigid. A project dedicated to redesigning textbooks in Taiwan mentions that when textbooks adopt a more creative, artistic and interactive design, textbooks can inspire children’s creativity and observation skills. These encouraging textbooks can push children to explore more. As a result, this can help cultivate children’s personality development for high-quality childhood education.
  • Emotional Expressiveness

    Unlike learning in other fields, in the aesthetic world there are no definitions of right or wrong. It aims to inspire children to express what they feel and believe in. This constructs a welcoming environment for quality education on mentality. By understanding and accepting their own emotions, kids progressively build up their confidence, independence and interpersonal skills.

Conclusion

Apart from visual arts, every aspect of daily life has its unique “beauty”. Aesthetic training builds up children’s capability to discover “beauty”. It helps enrich children’s understanding of the world and enhance the efficacy of quality childrenhood education, including their lifestyle, character, ability, personality and mentality. Even though there are no exams to test on children’s aesthetic abilities and not all children aim to become an artist, aesthetic training still brings many benefits to children.
