A class of fourth-graders (nine-to-ten-year-olds) was taught art appreciation one day a week during an entire school year. Three years later their performance in visual awareness was tested and compared to the performance of pupils of the same age from another class who had not received any particular education in art appreciation. The results show that the young people who participated in the educational program performed notably better in visual awareness than those who did not. (Contains 4 tables, 6 figures and 6 notes.)
