Arts remove boundaries and allow children to learn math, reading, science and other traditional disciplines in a less traditional manner. Arts experiences develop the self-discipline, creativity and confidence that will help children to succeed in school, work and life. Research has shown that early experiences in the arts can have positive impacts in other areas, such as reading, writing and math. Enriching arts curriculum allows children to create, perform and respond in the arts and helps them to reason and understand the world around them. In fact, study after study shows that students who are engaged in the arts earn better grades, score higher on exams, perform more community service and watch less television.
The term “arts” includes music, dance, drama and visual arts. Traditionally, visual arts have received the most focus in education. TJT believes that exposure to all four art disciplines will best benefit children and their learning. Dance, music, performing and visual arts can all help develop a child’s cognitive, motor, language and social-emotional skills.
