benefits of art education
Why do we expect art technique to be intuitive? Can you imagine going to statistics class and having the professor say – explore? Look at these numbers. Read these new problems and give it a go. Try and figure out how to make numbers do that. No explanation. Not even a text book.

“There are visible academic and art benefits for children that participate in our program. Young Rembrandts’ students have fun while developing fundamental art literacy and improved academic abilities,” notes Fetter. “We are passionate about helping children develop the skills they need to be successful.”
