Art and the Developing Brain

On June 1, 2017, in collaboration with Ecole St. Mary’s School, we held a family art evening hosted by Katherine Domes. Families brought their children to learn some tips about art and create their own masterpieces. We had a second evening of art at Westminster School on June 15.

Below are a number of articles that discuss the relationship between art and the developing brain:
