Learning in and Through the Arts: Curriculum Implications
This study of over 2,000 public-school students in grades 4-8 was conducted by a team of researchers from Teacher's College, Columbia University. The study found that students involved in high-arts-intensive settings performed better than students in low-arts settings in creativity, fluency, originality, elaboration and resistance to closure. These skills also seemed to extend into nonarts subject areas such as math and science. The researchers saw an important relationship between "rich in-school arts programs and creative, cognitive and personal competencies needed for academic success."
