Chalk Talk: The Advantages of Participating in Fine Arts
We seem to be getting lost in the world of academic achievement, and often times at the expense of Fine Arts education. Many people feel that Fine Arts are antiquated and irrelevant in the world today. That is simply not true. Through the study of Fine Arts children can enhance their ability to grasp the primary academic subjects. Several studies have shown that children that participate in musical arts such as band and choir perform better on mathematical assessments. Studies have also shown that children in visual arts classes have better spatial awareness. Not only do these classes enhance academic learning abilities they supply children with the ability to develop creativity skills. Additionally, these classes often an emotional outlet that allows for more personal development. Based on these facts it is fair to say that Fine Arts programs should be supported in schools across the United States.
