Parent Power: Importance of Art Education for Kids

featuring Young Art

Many schools are shifting to emphasize the core subjects like reading and math. Because of this, enrichment programs (i.e. art) are getting left behind. And while some believe art education amounts to just basic finger painting or coloring books, shifting this mindset for future generations is key.

Join us for a brief but informative chat with Ginhee Rancourt, CEO and Founder of Young Art

In this podcast, the importance of art for kids is discussed. How does art spark innovative problem solving? What does the future of design thinking behold? Answers to these questions (and more) are also covered.
