As young children create collages with torn paper, or explore paint by putting it all over their hands, it's noticeable how immersed in their activities they become. The visual arts help children develop many life skills and increase brain capacity. Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and supports the development of cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills.
Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. Increased IQ and mathematics capabilities, spatial-temporal skills, and improved test scores are all proven benefits of a music-based education.
Dance & Creative Movement
Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility, they move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. When their movement becomes consciously structured and is performed with awareness for its own sake, it becomes dance. Dance is basic to learning; physical development, emotional maturity, social awareness, and cognitive development.
Drama & Improv
Numerous studies have demonstrated a correlation between drama involvement and academic achievement. Children involved in drama education outperform their peers in SAT scores, have higher attendance rates, improved reading comprehension, and social/emotional skills.
