    Grow Up Great: Getting Creative with Arts Education
    Research has shown that simple creative activities are critical to the building blocks of child development. Many of the motions involved in creating art or playing music, such as holding a paintbrush or playing a keyboard, are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children. For very young children, creating art or hearing music provides opportunities to learn words for colors, shapes and actions, which enhance language skills. In addition, when young children are encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art, they develop a sense of confidence that will be important in their growing years, in school and in their adult lives. This panel discussion explores the different facets of arts and music education and the best practices for educators. Guests Include: Lauren Meehan, Director, Newark Arts Education Roundtable Amy Burns, Music Teacher, Far Hills Country Day School & Chair, Early Childhood Music Education, NJ Music Education Association Matt Ross, Founder, One River School of Art and Design Lawrence Tamburri, Executive Director, Newark School of the Arts
