Arts are good for children's education

February 25, 2003

Albany -- Making sure your child is influenced by the arts could improve his overall education. Education experts say students who learn about art or music on a regular basis, do better in most subjects.

Albany Museum of Art executive director Aaron Berger says art can teach children basics in history, literature, math and geometry. Berger said "It's a very holistic opportunity for kids. Kids who study art have higher SAT scores. They have a better chance of going further in college."

Art can be a lifelong hobby, that can be enjoyed by the youngest or the oldest.
