Even when the kids ditch the crayons for the iPadart will not be forgotten in the digital world, especially as the technology to do so evolves.
Creating digital art can be as in-demand a skill as coding. 3D animation is estimated to grow at an annual rate of 12.5% and become a nearly $50 million (S$65.7 million) market by 2030, according to Acumen Research and Consulting.

But parents can encourage children to play with all kinds of art, whether analog or digital, to expose them to different experiences and means of expression.
