10 Reasons Why Art is Good For Kids and the World!
We get many requests each year from schools and Arts organizations to print and use this list – we always say yes – after we ask what it will be used for. Enjoy, see what it brings up.
1) Art Generates a Love of Learning & Creativity. Art develops a willingness to explore what has not existed before. Art teaches risk taking, learning from one’s mistakes, and being open to other possibilities. Kids who are creative are also curious and passionate about knowing more.
2) Art Develops the Whole Brain. Art strengthens focus and increases attention, develops hand-eye coordination, requires practice and strategic thinking, and involves interacting with the material world through different tools and art mediums.
3) Art Prepares Kids for the Future. Creative, open-minded people are highly desired in all career paths. Art and creative education increases the future quality of the local and global community. Being creative is a life long skill and can be used in every day situations.
Drawing on Earth passionately connects art and creativity to youth and communities around the world.
