A child’s imagination is arguably the most powerful tool utilized to navigate through school and life. Imagination supplies a child with the insight and understanding needed to be successful in endeavors, and the arts are one area where a child acquires language and media skills necessary to express imagination to the world.

It is well established that aptitude with the arts helps children transfer expertise to other subjects as well. This has been demonstrated by many studies. For example, MIT stated recently that students typically remember about 10% of what they read, but 90% of what they actually experience through doing. Additionally, the strong connection between math and music has been well documented. Children who learn math concepts through music and dance retain the information far more than those who learn by verbal instruction alone. Finally, there are many physical benefits for developing well rounded children through exposure to the arts. When small children work with clay, for example, it strengthens their finger muscles in readiness for writing. Read More→
