Based on the premise that art and culture are intrinsically related, the effect of art on cognition of children may be explored adopting a cultural perspective. Art embodies cultural meanings historically and socially aggregated from human activities. Through art, children have excellent learning opportunities to unravel connotations from cultural points of view. Students take charge of their learning according to their dispositions. Through integrated, multidimensional learning experiences, students probe different knowledge domains. Cultural understanding of art is a cognitive undertaking of imagination and creativity upon which sound foundations for lifelong learning are built. Social and cultural knowledge could play a crucial part in harnessing the cognitive ability of children in the process of art learning by helping them to shift the emphasis from individually free expression and creation to a more meaningful, and comprehensive visual communication.
