视觉艺术在幼儿教育中的作用一直被认为是课程的重要组成部分。(Eckhoff, Angela, 2011)艺术包含欣赏的变化。不同形式的艺术，如舞蹈、绘画、表演艺术、雕塑等等。艺术需要纳入学校的课程，并将艺术教育的知识传授给孩子们。艺术鉴赏可以从小灌输给孩子。对艺术的了解和理解也可以帮助孩子们用不同的创造性的艺术形式来表达自己，让他们感到舒适。艺术培养孩子的创造性，因为它使孩子参与一个有助于发展自尊、自律、合作和自我激励的过程。孩子的自尊会提高，因为在自我创造中没有对错之分。这样，孩子们在完成一件艺术品时，无论它是一幅绘画作品还是一幅舞蹈和音乐作品，都能以自律和更长的耐心来完成任务。合作工作也会提高孩子们的耐心，比如和音乐一起跳舞，和其他孩子一起创作一段美妙的音乐。最重要的是，孩子们需要自我激励才能对艺术产生兴趣。
The role of the visual arts in early childhood education has long been recognised and valued as an essential component of the curriculum. (Eckhoff, Angela, 2011) The arts consist of variation of appreciation. The different forms art such as dancing, drawing and painting, performance art, sculpturing and many more. Art needs to be included in the school's curriculum and encompass the knowledge of the arts education to the children. Art appreciation can be inculcate to children at young age. Knowing and understanding of the arts may also help children to express themselves in different creative art forms in which they are comfortable in.Art nurtures the child to be inventiveness as it engages the child in a process that helps in the development of self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, and self-motivation. Children's self-esteem will improve as there is not right or wrong in self creative creation. In this way, children's are able to complete task with self-discipline and longer patience in completing an art piece regardless whether it is an drawing and painting piece or a dance and music piece. Working cooperatively will also be enhanced children's patience such as dancing together with music and other children to produce a wonderful piece of musical. Most importantly children needs to be self-motivated to have the interest in arts.
