Involving children in creative art activities goes far beyond just being about “art for art’s sake.” Our
presentations give an overview to parents and educators about how the arts affect children in their everyday
life and enhances their abilities in academic performance. Stages of physical and mental growth—brain
development, effect on fine motor skills, problem solving and creative thinking skills are discussed.
Lectures also focus on how children perceive artistic achievement and how that often differs from an adult
perspective and vision of what is considered successful. The goal our presentations is to have audience
members walk away with useful tools and knowledge that will help them address and enhance children’s
educational and creative experiences and outcomes.
This workshop, led by Articulture Executive Director Liz Greenbaum, clarifies how arts learning enhances
academic achievement and helps participants explore ways of incorporating arts education into class
curriculum. The pedagogy of allowing students to find their own path through the creative process will
be discussed. Leave with concrete ways to provide your students with quality educational experiences
through the arts.
