Art is Important in Child Development
In the past 10 years, due in part to budget contraints and testing changes, schools have shifted toward common core subjects like reading and math, leaving subjects such as ART and P.E. as not that important. Although some may regard art education as a simple, creative activity, art is actually some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics is more important than ever to the development of children.
