How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

It has been clearly shown that children engaged in the arts can improve their math scores by up to 15%.  Sadly, many low-income schools have cut arts education. ”  Since
research has shown that studying art actually increases a students ability
to learn math, we created the first Art Textbook that
references the California Math Standards. Through our extensive
research and expertise in education, EDU DESIGNS began a program
that develops analytical skills and builds character.
We offer an Art presentation to schools completely free of charge and donate one of each of our books and videos to the schools we visit, including the first Art Textbook to reference the CA math standards.
