With the current emphasis on creative thinking and a vision of a Singapore known for ‘art, civilization and ideas (Straits Times, 21 Jan 1996), art has gained its much needed attention. This paper examines the cognitive profiles of Secondary Three and Four Art Elective and non-Art Elective students (Express stream). Art education in Singapore schools can be categorized under two major programmes – the Art Elective Programme (AEP) and the non-Art Elective or general art programme. The Cognitive Laterality Battery (CLB)(Gordon, 1986) was administered to 227 students from both programmes. This paper also discusses the implications of the findings on art curriculum in schools.
