Creating art is a very effective way to stimulate the mind and everyone can do it. Most of people think wrongly that it could practice only by artist and you need talent, but actually anyone can embrace their creative side and stimulate their imagination…
Creativity is all about exploring, imagining and discovering.
Art opens the mind to possibilities and fuels the imagination. When you make art, you are making a series of decisions and then you interpret the images and the meaning.
It also helps to communicate on your own emotions, thoughts and experiences. That’s why it is recommended to create art for losing yourself, losing all awareness because you are so in the moment and fully present that you forget all sense of time and space.
Creating art requires concentration and focus on the task at hand, and you can find yourself absorbed in the process, providing a distraction for your brain from overwhelming thoughts. Art will also make you more observant to details and you will pay more attention to your environment.
