Art Benefits

    My name is Andrea and I am a senior from West Virginia. I am working
on my senior research paper, project and presentation. I have chosen the
topic of art in education especially during early and elementary
education. I want to focus on how art helps reinforce other subjects,
improve self-esteem and improve other important developmental areas during
this time period. I feel that this topic is greatly important especially
since many areas, including my town, are thinking of cutting down art and
music areas in the elementary and secondary schools. I have found a lot of
articles about projects but not many about the specific benefits of art at
an early age. Any web sites or other information you could provide for me
would be greatly appreciated.
