Recently, Lisa Phillips, author of the book “The Artistic Edge: 7 Skills Children Need to Succeed in an Increasingly Right Brain World”, blog journalist, arts and leadership educator, speaker and business owner, discussed top 10 skills children learn from arts. These are skills that would be vital to our children’s future success that may not always be addressed by a STEM education.
- Problem Solving
- Non-Verbal Communication
- Receiving Constructive Feedback
This list of skills was recently featured on the ARTSblog, a program of Americans for the Arts, and Washington Post blog. We at Arts to Grow have also observed this list first hand. We see it in our music program. We see it in our visual arts program. We see it in our theater program. Simply said, we see it our kids, as they grow and mature in our programs. Join us in our mission to nurture these skills in our kids.
