See for Yourself How Art Makes You Smarter – LEAPS of Imagination Student Show

Zoot Coffee, 31 Elm Street, Camden

1 February – February 29

“Art makes you smarter,” one LEAPS’ second grader said, reflecting on its importance in kids’ lives. There are so many reasons why.

  • Art creates opportunities for imaginations to soar.
  • Art teaches children to see connections and make inferences.
  • Art helps students become risk takers, work through failures, and try new approaches.
  • Art deepens understanding, contextualizing ideas to make them meaningful.
  • Art is good for thinking.

If children today are to become the leaders of tomorrow, art will set them on the path and inspire their first steps.

LEAPS of IMAGINATION brings mentor artists into public school classrooms to promote art exploration and connected thinking.
