Abstract

Early childhood is the period of children’s growth, physically and mentally. The early building of character is very important in the early childhood period. The effective and efficient process of character building can be done through the education of performing and fine arts. This research aims to review the building of character in Early Childhood Education through the teaching of performing and fine arts. This research employs observation and documentation to collect the data. The data validation used source validation. The analysis of the research used through data reduction, verification, and presentation. The result shows that the character-building triggers children's creativity, rationality, systematicity, critical thinking, and orderliness. The children project the behaviour of honesty, acceptance, tolerance, and responsible. Learning and teaching performing and fine arts potentially develops children’s humanist character through the appreciative, expressive, and creative activities, which is implanted in constructive, interactive, and reflective perspective and action. The implication from the research is to show the learning is a way to build character. The character of the children will be better from the teaching of it.
