The Arts Education Partnership reviewed multiple research studies identified within ArtsEdSearch — a national clearinghouse of rigorous arts education research — to better understand the role visual arts play in student success. This resource explores how visual arts support students’ academic success both within and outside of school settings by cultivating learning skills, boosting academic achievement and enhancing the educational experience of traditionally underserved students.
This report is part of AEP’s “Arts Matter” series describing the researched benefits of arts education. AEP has renamed the series “Arts Counts” in positive recognition of the Black Lives Matter movement.
