When your students take a well-constructed art class, there is so much more to gain than drawing or painting skills. Here is a list of just 10 not-so-obvious gifts that you give your kids when they receive a stellar art education.
1) The Gift of Problem-Solving
In the art room, there is always a new problem to solve. In fact, each art “project” could be accurately described as an art “problem”. When students are presented with a challenge and simple guidelines, their problem-solving skills meet their personal interests and BAM! A beautiful, unique solution begins to come alive! This type of creative thinking is not only helpful in the art room, but in the real world where global, communal, and personal problems await a problem-solver with excellent solutions.
