Art Makes Learning Fun
According to research information from the Association for the Advancement of Arts Education, the arts are effective in keeping kids in school, in reaching students at-risk and students with distinctive learning styles, and in helping to develop a more disciplined educational environment in which students' energy are directed at learning and creating.
