NAEA Articles on the Importance of Art Education

The National Art Education Association (NAEA) website offers a wealth of information about learning, community, news, advocacy and research in the field of art education.

Today I found a great link to articles discussing the importance of art education. They discuss not only the positive impact of art on school climate  and overall students achievement, but also remind us of the importance of art on its own merit as a creative outlet and source of visual literacy.

The articles can be found in NAEA’s website section Research & Knowledge under the title 10 Salient Studies on the Arts in Education.
