Does Art Education Help The Brain With Learning?

Art helps you to learn. It says in this article that schools that focus on art have higher educational achievement. GO ART!!! Today’s biology suggests that art education helps to lay the groundwork for future academic and career success.

We started making Totum Poles in my primary school this week. They are all going to be stacked on top of one another. We used terracotta clay and they will be fired to 1100 degrees in the kiln.
I can't wait to see them finished!!
