More and more people want a smart baby art that will grow up to be a smart adult. They have become very proactive to accomplish this. Books and DVD’s on the subject are selling fast. But what does smart mean? We usually associate smarts with IQ or intelligence quotient. IQ is a measurement of the mental ability to solve problems, abstract thinking, reasoning ability and comprehension of new ideas.
There is controversy as to how well it measures the cognitive complexity of problems that can be handled. Bottom line, the little number does not tell how smart your child is. What is known, there are things you can to to make your baby smart. So what can you do so that your smart baby becomes a smart adult?
To see the potential for art to make your baby smart, consider how the baby brain develops.

With a large part of the brain developed, the baby brain is much like a new computer you buy. It has some basic programming imprinted within the cells. Some of those imprints are autonomic. Some are from what it has learned while in the womb, and the rest it will learn as it grows.
In the first few years of life there is an enormous increase in the number of connections between the nerve cells. Each of these connections are part of the thoughts, memories, understanding and cognitive ability of your baby. These connections are responsible for the behavior like emotion, hearing, memory, perception, and vision.
These connections are also play a part in the personal growth and development the baby will experience throughout life.
By some estimates between 250,000 to 500,000 connections are made every second. This means millions of connections are made every day.
The major problem solving skills develop from age 1-5. These skills are related to hearing, sight and touch.
It is felt that problem solving math skills are developed in conjunction with musical skills. Stimulate the senses involved with these skills and you will increase the problem solving and spatial relationship skills in your quest to make a smart baby.
How? This is a partial list of the many suggestions of what you can use. Notice a common thread within this list. This will be the basis for the art you select.
Did you know that you baby's vision is stimulated by bold colors and interesting patterns. With the development of their visual acuity (ability to determine shapes and colors) babies will respond to contrasting colors and patterns.
Remember too, babies are only babies for a short time. They also have use or lose brain cells. If you buy interesting and beautiful art for their walls it will help them with their cognitive growth and development. A smart baby art can help your little ones grow into a smart adult.
I was exposed to paintings and other artworks from as far back as I can remember. There were paintings and art throughout my house. Did this have an influence in my being an artist? You will have a hard time convincing me it did not.
