Kids NEED Art! When it’s added to their Educational ‘diet’, EVERYONE wins!
It’s been PROVEN that Kids NEED ART! In the latest report of the National Council on the Arts 3/30/2012, Dr. James Catterall presents conclusive evidence that “High arts kids considerably outperform Low arts kids” in every area.” His work reveals why students engaged in the arts do better academically, linking art and cognitive development and leading to pro social behavior later on in life. “Why?” to paraphrase Dr. Catterall,
“Doing art is solving problems, is stimulating, and helps brain function in a variety of ways… It helps spatial reasoning, cognitive development, engagement and motivation…which also adds to social and cultural engagement in school.”

Since the removal of the Arts from low income schools, children in the U.S. have fallen behind in math and critical thinking skills. People say that ‘children are our future,’ yet few know what to do. That’s where EDU DESIGNS is determined to lend a hand in a practical way. By donating Art presentations to schools plus Character building books, (including SEE WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT, the first Art Textbook to reference the CA Math Standards) it allows Art to once again be back in the classroom where it belongs, inspiring kids to learn and increasing their creativity. To schedule an art presentation for YOUR school*, contact the director at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
