Experts found out how creativity affects school performance
Researchers at George Mason University said that auxiliary classes in any art form, such as music, dancing, or drawing, contribute to improving the performance of children in school.
Academics studied the performance data of more than 31 thousand students, whose age ranged from 11 to 14 years.
In addition, they reviewed the archival records of kindergartens, where they spoke about the level of preparation of the child for primary school.
About forty percent of all children devoted their free time to different types of art.
Academics have found that schoolchildren who devote their time to creative work in high school demonstrate excellent successes in primary school.
