Teaching art helps children succeed

One child enthusiastically dives into a pile of colorful ribboned wires and begins to twist and bend them into different shapes, while a boy with his arms crossed stares down blankly.

He reluctantly begins by curving one strip into a circle and soon his hesitation disappears.
