Hand-Eye Coordination: Art allows students to use and improve their fine motor skills. Painting, writing, drawing, cutting, reflexes, any kind of movement.
Self-Expression: Art programs in education benefit the children because it allows them to express themselves. Art also allows the students to learn new things that they may not be exposed to outside the classroom. Some children may not have the opportunity to express themselves at home, and may not have the appropriate supplies.
Concentration: Art keeps most students engaged, meaning they're able to do the art project from beginning to finish. Art allows the students to be able to concentrate and get a feeling of accomplishment once they've finished the art project. Some students may have problems doing this in other areas in the classroom.
