Why Art Is Crucial for Kids' Mental Health

Kid creating art smiling
Mental health is a topic that's been receiving more and more attention in recent years. Whereas before, mental illness was a topic that was seen as taboo or shameful, it's now being recognized as a pretty standard part of many people's lives and something that needs to be addressed head-on. Within the broader topic of mental wellness, kids' mental health is an especially important area of focus.

So, where does art come in? In the context of the pandemic, teachers are using art classes and expression to ease kids back into in-person learning with amazing results. Read on for tips, resources, and some of Austin's finest art schools for kids and adults alike.

Great Gift Alternatives To Toys For Kids In And Around Austin


Toys are important, toys are fun.

Some toys are amazing and enriching to a child's imagination, learning and creativity.

But: Many toys are just something that gets wrapped up in pretty paper, so your child has something to rip into on Christmas morning, or on their birthday, or on any other gift-inspired holiday. These toys often last only for a short time, are forgotten in no time, and end up on the landfill.

Austin is an amazing city to raise kids.

The Austin area has so much to give and offers some fantastic toy-alternatives that serve your children (and your entire family) well.
