Art is beneficial...

1. Motor Skills

Many of the motions involved in making art, such as holding a paintbrush or scribbling with a crayon, are essential to the growth of fine motor skills.

2. Decision Making

Art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

3. Visual Learning

Drawing, sculpting with clay and threading beads on a string all develop visual-spatial skills, which are more important than ever.
