Art Makes You Smart

I work for a small company called Art Skills, Inc., located in Easton, PA.
 The company produces sets which teach various art disciplines, such as
painting and sculpting. They are also producing a series called "Art
Makes You Smart," the premise of which is exactly how it sounds. My boss
firmly believes that art-related activities can increase intelligence in
other areas as well, such as reading and mathematical ability. I am
looking for any kind of proof that art really can increase intelligence.
If anyone has ideas of where I can find data, information, or advice,
please respond to my email under the subject heading "Art Makes You
Smart." Thank you.
