Aesthetic Education Helps Children To Act In Accordance With A Sense Of Proportion, Harmony And Beauty.
Today’s schools strive for the development of professional knowledge and skills on the basis of intellectual actions. Thus, it is one of the most important tasks for the education of children is to develop the ability to enjoy art and beauty.
Aesthetic education helps in developing the aesthetic sense of children for the beautiful and a sense of proportion towards nature and toward the beautiful in interpersonal relationships. Below are the reasons why you should consider aesthetic education in your business.
The ability to perceive aesthetic qualities
To make a child capable of appreciating natural wonders, shapes, shades and pictures, they must be able to first notice them. A child is incapable of noticing particular shapes if his/her ability to notice objects and forms are undeveloped. If our ability to recognise aesthetic qualities is not developed, we also cannot experience them.
The aesthetic relationship begins with noticing of aesthetic qualities. This ability to recognise does not simply include emotional recognition but also rational one-mental capacities and particular types of knowledge.
The ability to experience aesthetic qualities
Aesthetic qualities induce feelings of excitement, joy and optimism. Such emotional states enable the individual and encourage to also produce art themselves. The ability to experience aesthetically must also be developed and nurtured.
The cognitive elements of the processes that we undergo during noticing must also include emotional tones with which we form impressions and it is these that the aesthetic experience is built upon. With the aid of aesthetic qualities, it is possible to enrich the emotional life of children and young people and the development of a sense for aesthetic values.
It is essential to allow children to participate in activities that will develop their creative abilities. This is about creativity which serves the general aesthetic culture, in the creation of aesthetic values in everyday life, environment, and workplace.
We are not simply born with creative abilities; they have to be developed. Aesthetic perception is dependent on the relationship between the child and art.
Judging or evaluating aesthetic qualities demands formed evaluation criteria. In order for beauty to reveal its true value, we must be familiar with its particularities and its language. This task also serves general culture and not the professional training of art critics.
Through aesthetic education, a child will be able to differentiate: the beautiful from the non-beautiful, the aesthetically valuable from the non-valuable and artistically valuable work from non-valuable work. In this way, the child will be able to develop the foundations for judging and evaluating the beautiful.
