“The arts are a critical component of healthcare. Expressive art is a tool to explore, develop, and practice creativity as a means to wellness.” ~ Wellarts Association
ART has the power to heal, inspire, provoke, challenge & offer hope. ART enhances individuals, society, and the environment.
Decades of research have provided more than a sufficient amount of data to prove that arts education impacts everything from overall academic achievement to social and emotional development and so much more. Research has proven the arts develop neural systems that produce a broad spectrum of benefits ranging from fine motor skills to creativity and improved emotional balance
Every time you engage in a new or complex activity, your brain creates new connections between brain cells. Your brain’s ability to grow connections and change throughout your lifetime is called brain plasticity or neuroplasticity. Creating art stimulates communication between various parts of the brain.
And this is the mere reason why art is important in our daily lives.
Art and design process makes life worthwhile. It may not be vital to fulfill our basic needs, but it does make life joyful.
