  3. 3. Advantages of Having Art in Elementary Schools<br />Builds Imagination<br />Encourages Listening<br />Improves Social Skills <br />Enhances Problem Solving Abilities<br />Helps with Cognitive Skills<br />Brings out Creative Abilities in Children <br />
  4. 4. How Art Benefits all K-12 Students<br />Creates personal satisfaction<br />Allows children and teens to express themselves visually<br />Students become more motivated and interested in subjects<br />Offers a connection to the past<br />Provides recognition in society<br />
  5. 5. How Art Benefits all K-12 Students Continued..<br />Students who take an art class are more willing to experiment, make mistakes and learn from their mistakes. It also help students reflect on their abilities. Also, it makes it easier for children and teens to critique themselves without becoming frustrated and disappointed. <br />
  6. 6. Connections Between Art and Other Academics<br />Students who take art classes are more likely to do better in their academic classes. In art, many things other than drawing and painting are taught that helps build skills that can help children and teens in their other academic classes. For example, cognitive skills, and problem solving skills as mentioned before. <br />
  7. 7. Are Art Courses Available in All K-12 Schools?<br />Not all schools offer Art Courses. Some are even cutting back on them for reasons such as saving money or simply because they feel that it is not an important attribute to the Education System. <br />
  8. 8. Alternatives if Art Courses are Not Available in Schools <br />Just because some schools do not offer art courses, does not mean they are not available elsewhere. Many clubs, organizations, and studios offer art classes for a variety of ages. Some are free and some require a fee. You just need to choose the one that is best for your child and your budget. <br />
  9. 9. Why should we keep Art in the Education System?<br />Keeping Art in the K-12 Education System will continue to allow children to show their creative sides through something other than regular academics (English, Math, History, and Science). Art is known to persuade children to read and write more, and of course develops many abilities such as problem solving, and cognitive skills, building imagination, and listening skills. It really is important for children and teens to have access to an art course. <br />

  13. 13. Overall <br />There is many different types of art classes a child or teen can take. Art in the K-12 Education System provides children and teens with many advantages to new types of learning and skills. It also builds confidence and motivation in children and teens. Although not all school districts provide art classes, you can always find many others outside of the school itself. Having art in schools would only better children and teens. <br />
