Can Art Help Kids Learn? Yes!

August 12, 2015 / Education

A study in 2014 proved what lots of parents and educators had long suspected: yes, art can help kids learn.

Specifically, the study, published in EducationNext, showed that “taking students to an art museum improved critical thinking skills, and more.” Even one visit, the study found, made “a definite impression on students,” one of the researches said. For the study, one visit consisted of looking at 5 paintings over the course of 1 hour, with no lecture.

We here at Oopsy Daisy have long believed that art does wonders for a child’s mind and imagination: that art helps kids learn. But to find out that just looking at art for a few minutes can help develop a child’s critical thinking skills? Well, we were thrilled.

Because we have a wide assortment of educational art that kids love and that looks terrific on their walls. And now we know, scientifically, that being exposed to this art on a daily basis is good for their brains. Talk about a win-win!

Here’s some of our favorite educational art for kids, just in time for back-to-school (along with a few tips on how to share it with your child):
