Every kid, from young to teen, should experiment with art styles.
The journey of creativity is different for everyone. As a young artist gets comfortable with a certain way of creating, they may avoid trying different forms of art-making. For instance, the oil pastel artist might hesitate to try acrylic painting. Or an artist who prefers to draw in black and white might fear the results of trying to create an artwork in color. Experimenting in new areas of art making will help a creative person use different methods and styles. Do not be afraid to try new art mediums that you might find in different kids art kits!
