Kelly -
In answer to your question, There has been a great deal of studies and research
done on how art education can influence a child cognitively. Many in our field seem
to have placed it on the back burner for the time being but there is renewed interest
in it as of late. One of the books published in the 1940's was written by Victor
Lowenfield (not sure of spelling) was called "Creative and Mental Growth" and this
was extemely influential in art education. But it is not easy to come by and you
would probably have to put a search on it at your local library.
Also, there is a contemporary book out there that has a lot to do with the age you
are dealing with. Its called "Artful Scribbles" by Janet Olson..
There is a great deal of literature out there on developmental approaches to art
education, I'm glad you're willing to put some time into looking for it.
