Arts make students smart
When children are physically active and creative, they tend to focus better and work more enthusiastically with the rest of the curriculum. Arts, sport, music and drama are often viewed as fun extra-curricular activities for children but are given less importance compared with core subjects such as English, science, or mathematics. The arts should be taken seriously as a source of inspiration, as a way of life - Nataša Pantović Nevertheless, numerous studies prove that practising arts, music and sport from an early age improves brain activity, self-confidence, and gives students an overall sense of well-being. Students who consistently practise sport, arts, music, drama, and dance, are usually more creative and innovative and also perform better academically. Physical education programmes can influence the way children view physical fitness when they grow older, how they relate to their body and overall health. Many team sports require children to work together to achieve a common goal.
