What is the benefit of making art? Making art is not just fun, but it also gives students of any age the opportunity to develop cognitive skills through emphasizing modes of thinking called the Studio Habits of Mind. These Habits of Mind skills are easily transferable to many situations outside of the art room, both in life and learning situations.
