Expressive Arts

The inspiration and power of the arts play a vital role in enabling our children and young people to enhance their creative talent and develop their artistic skills. By engaging in experiences within the expressive arts, children and young people will recognise and represent feelings and emotions, both their own and those of others. The expressive arts play a central role in shaping our sense of our personal, social and cultural identity. Learning in the expressive arts also plays an important role in supporting children and young people to recognise and value the variety and vitality of culture locally, nationally and globally (source).

The 4-H Expressive Arts program provides opportunities for members to explore and develop their artistic awareness, creative potential, and appreciation of art and the artistic process.  Statewide project areas include: Art, Cake Decorating.
