Research suggests that students who received more arts education did better on standardized tests, had greater social skills and were more motivated to achieve their goals than those who had little or no access to arts education.
According to a report by Americans for the Arts, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. For young children, arts education provides them with opportunities to learn words for colors, shapes and actions.
Moreover, 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 in young children. Learning art is also related to gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills.
At Lancers, art is used as a medium for our students to express their inner thoughts and as a creative learning tool to understand the many nuances of the world we live in. Regular visits to museums and art exhibitions further expand their horizons and expose them to art from other times and artists.
