The art teacher is unique in a school. He or she is the creative influence, not only do they serve the school in terms of providing stage sets, posters and a myriad of other creative aspects. But their main function is in the classroom with children. They develop children’s creativity, their means of expression and their manipulative skills. Art teachers also develop the skills of drawing, painting, sculpture etc. in children. With these skills they encourage children to create imaginative responses to problems and scenarios. Above all they get children to think laterally, which is a very important skill indeed.
