LANSING, MI – In regards to current local health orders in educational settings, please see the following statement from Ingham County Health Officer Linda Vail and the Ingham County Health Department:
Making art builds fine motor skills, boosts self-confidence and allows children to share their feelings in age-appropriate ways. Art improves children’s higher thinking skills and encourages them to use their imagination. Create a space where it is okay to make a mess.
