Why Anyone Should Make Art

Healing, creativity, and fun are only some of the great reasons.

People have been creating art for ages – but with so many other activities fluttering around, its easy to forget how beneficial simply sitting down and doodling can be. With the variety of apps that allow online drawing and painting nowadays, there isn’t even a need to have sketchbook carried around with you – just a phone or a tablet and you’re ready to go. Some of the mentioned benefits in Business Insider are the ability doodling has on helping concentration. By the simple act of jotting down little pictures, people are able to remember 29% more information through a recall test. Furthermore, art classes have been shown to have the greatest positive impact on mood of students, and it is where students are far more exuberant and excited to participate.

Another bonus to creating something artistic is that creating visual art helps strengthen the connections in the brain. It’s a connection between a person’s “internal self and the external world” – what is even better is that this connection is able to be experienced by other people as well. Art is capable of strengthening memory, increasing emotional capacity and can be therapeutic, and also something that gets people in a good frame of mind. There’s no limit to the benefits of art.
