Imagine a treasure box!… Inside it, there is painting, music, dancing….And what is written on the box with big letters?
We all express ourselves in different ways. Sometimes with a smile, sometimes with a poem or dance… Although we say speaking is the most important communication tool, there are many more special tools that often replace it. As Mozart said to his dear father at a birthday celebration;
Dear daddy! I cannot express my feelings through poetry, I am not a poet, I cannot express myself with shadows and light, I am not a painter, I cannot explain my thoughts with movements, I am not a dancer. I can express myself with the right compositions.
Or Frida's dialogue with Diego, the love she devoted her life to;
What is happiness, do you know? Frida asked with a mischievous look.
‘It could be socialism or maybe nirvana.” Diego said.
No it is not, what is happiness right now? said Frida.
"The little basket with flowers that you bring your cozy lunch with." Said Diego. Frida pours the most special painting on her brush and describes happiness with pictures.
What about dance ..
Is that another way of expressing yourself?

At Focus on Kids,we teach our children at a young age by combining these three branches.The branches that are essential for the existence of art, along with drama and foreign language education.
Music is one of the most important lessons in pre-school… You are telling the contents from the very beginning, humming to it. With sol, with mi, with do. Measure in rhyme. Music is the king of medicine, you will understand. What we will tell you after this introduction strengthens the importance of music. Music is a part of the learning and development process from the mother's womb. Listening to music in the preschool period, the child learns to be quiet, concentrate, recognize and distinguish sounds. The singing child also learns to use his voice. It reflects its energy to the outside in positive ways while using musical instruments. It creates its own rhythm by discovering sounds. Thus, he gains the ability to play an instrument. This improves the child's sense of success and confidence. For this reason, we teach our children to listen to good music and play musical instruments with our experienced teachers.
Art brings all people together. As Mustafa Kemal Atatürk said, "Without art; one of the lifebloods of a nation is cut off" . Long live those “ in love with” art and art itself . But, there could be another world. If we weren’t able to change it, our children will change this world. With love, tolerance, wisdom, science and of course art.
Well, does art change the perspective of our children? The answer is very short and clear: it does!
It makes it easier for them to reveal their feelings and to reach a strong concentration and to become a happier, more confident individual.
Art provides eye and hand coordination.
Painting reflects one’s personality , desires and concerns.
Art reflects one’s personality, one’s desires and concerns.
The child can express what they cannot express by speaking through painting.
The child finds a way for emotional, perceptual, development by painting.
He embodies his abstract thoughts with line color and stain. In this way, the child discovers himself with the pictures he has made.
Mothers and fathers!Let your chidren free. Let them combine their dreams, feelings and thoughts with paints as they wish. If they learn at a young age, they will understand the language of colors, nature and the universe with a new perspective and love them with a big heart.
In our society, the criteria of success are believed to be getting a degree, getting a high score, or being be a successful student, doctor, engineer, lawyer… We draw the limits of success in this way, almost raising a racehorse. We disregard their dreams, talents and potentials by showing life as a race so that it can run faster, get the first, and pass everyone. However, someone who spent his childhood in lack of a good environment and without enough fun is often under pressure. Childhood must be spent in a creative climate with free relationships with the elderly. Dance plays a crucial role in raising children of this nature. Dance is another way of expressing themselves.
Music is based on dance and entertainment. If our children are interested in music, it will be easier for them to learn. Children improve their aesthetic perception by expressing their emotions with the movements they make while dancing. By increasing body coordination, they develop harmonious movement skills within the group. It also contributes greatly to the emotional development and socialization of children.
Dance of Drama and Mathematics with Art, Science, Nature and Music…
Mathematics lesson is the fearful dream of our children all over the world since the primary school age. Is the definition of mathematics made wrong? Is mathematics just a formula consisting of multiplication table and sets? Or is mathematics the center of life, as the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanuja taught us?
