Art has many benefits for children in education that affect the whole child in learning, creative expression, brain development, and mental health. The presenter worked alongside the Young Men's Christian Association in incorporating new and exciting forms of art in the afterschool program for elementary-aged students that were then featured in an art show. The project explored how each grade level responded to new art styles and if there were any benefits from their experience with new mediums.
