Here are some interested facts why art is good for you… thought I would share:
“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
— Pablo Picasso
There are a lot of misconceptions floating around about art.
Some think you have to be creating paintings or sculptures to be considered a real artist.
Others believe that you are either born with talent — or not.
Many are afraid that since they aren’t very good at something, there is no point and they won’t get any benefit from doing it.
Another myth is that you have to work with an art therapist to get any therapeutic benefit from doing art.
But we are all born with an innate desire to express ourselves and art encompasses a wider range of activities than you may have ever imagined.
Here are some of the best ways creative expression can benefit your brain and mental health to make you a happier, healthier person.
