MATH SCORES IMPROVE AS ART IS BROUGHT BACK TO CLASS
by Ruth Elliott, Director
If you know me, you know I love kids (and not just the seven that I have myself). They have been the inspiration for a non-profit that not only provides character development, it also puts art back into public schools, Edu Designs.
I’m excited about the great hope I feel whenever I give an art presentation to children. Kids are thrilled to learn how to draw in ways they never knew they could. Providing character and cognitive development materials to parents and teachers helps them express their emotions through art, giving them an outlet far better than gangs or drugs.
"...It was thrilling to see my students getting excited about art, and using their creativity in their drawings. Learning about 3D shapes has been very helpful in math. Teaching them to show people's emotions through their eyes has helped them illustrate their writing more accurately...."

We currently reach thousands of Southern California students and are growing on a national level by providing our materials for character and cognitive development to parents and teachers via requests online.
We’ve also uploaded free behavior charts available online that provide parents a system to have better behaved and happier kids. When I share them with mothers I meet, their eyes light up. Over and over again they tell me, “This is just what I’ve been looking for!”
Now I know you are wondering how reading this letter can put art back into public schools and here’s how.
