Art can be an effective and fun tool for teaching and understanding other important subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science. It improves fine motor skills, neural development, and enhances problem-solving abilities.

US News says “Policymakers, school administrators and parents alike may overlook the significance of arts education, but these programs can be a crucial component of your child’s school life.”

Art classes in schools are always a favorite for kids because they get to create, express themselves and experiment with new art mediums. Art allows children to set their imaginations free. But art is more than just fun, it is vital for a child’s cognitive, psychomotor, social and emotional development. Studies show that children who participate in art classes perform better in school. They are more attentive and tend to be more innovative in their learning. Research suggests that learning art enables a higher quality of life throughout a person’s life.

The Artful Parent says: “Art is naturally linked to creativity, an attribute that is increasingly being touted as one of the most important factors for the success of individuals, organizations, and cultures.”
