“The Drip Drops provide children with a platform to express themselves more clearly through their art, enabling them to develop subjects and symbols beyond their typical vocabulary,” said President and CEO Tony Lawlor. “By encouraging self-expression and allowing children to give form to their emotions, ideas and feelings through art, the Drip Drops series will serve as a valuable teaching tool and compliment a child’s academic arts program by providing a solid foundation for future learning.”
“The role of art in early childhood education is critical in helping children develop necessary life skills, and promote basic problem-solving and self-esteem,” said Dr. Karen Hill-Scott, Ed.D., a nationally recognized expert in childcare. “Exposure to art not only encourages self-expression through the representation of an object on paper, but also stimulates the development of abstract ideas and concepts”.
“Innovation in education comes in all shapes and sizes,” said Psychotherapist and Parenting Expert Stacy Kaiser. “In this case their innovation for preschoolers happens to come in the shape of the colorful Drip Drops, and their unique ability to help young kids learn on a variety of platforms, making their stories that much more relevant to kids and parents of today.”
