Why should people make Art? Even if they think they aren’t good!

Anyone can find the artist within…
Art is something amazing all passionate individuals can make as part of their lives.
An amazing, unexpected byproduct of making art is that people can bring happiness to thousands of people they’ll never meet (this is something amazing about sharing art through digital technologies).  And, once in a while they’ll get an email from someone letting they know how much their art means to them.  It’s an indescribable feeling.

We are hard-wired for creativity.  It is just a matter of honing it to a specific craft.  And, it is perhaps one of the most rewarding feelings we can have — giving life to something original from within ourselves to share with the world purely for intrinsic value.

Making art for fun and adventure builds bridges between the artist and the rest of humanity; reuniting and recording fragments of thoughts, feelings, memories, and saying things that can’t be expressed in any other way.

So here are a few reasons why people should make more art, paint more pictures, write more songs, color more, design more, decorate their space, decorate their bodies, and make life feel more like their own.

Make art to seek personal enjoyment and satisfaction

Art for social change is a relatively unexplored idea that has huge potential for nurturing mental health, wellbeing and to release stress and pent-up feelings.

The art and crafts give people an opportunity to work with their hands, showcase their talents, learn a skill and express their feelings in non-verbal ways. There is a lot of hidden talent in all of us which, if given an opportunity, can be channelized towards alternate occupations as well as enhance our self-esteem.

Visual art is a powerful tool in enhancing creative and emotional expression besides increasing the level of engagement and sustained attention.
People can relate the activities to their lives. Some even share events from their lives. The choice of activities varies from place to place, and storytelling, collage and drama sessions are also incorporated.

Art provides an environment of empathy

People try to capture in language the things that they see and feel, as a way of recording their beauty, power or terror, so that they can return to those things and relive them again. In that way, they try to have some sense of control in a chaotic world.
They want to somehow communicate the sense of the world—that way of understanding, engaging, experiencing the world—to be someone else. And so the ultimate aim is to create an environment of empathy, something that would allow the miracle of empathy to take place, where human beings seem to rise out of themselves and extend themselves into others’ shoes. 
People will learn things about themselves they didn’t know.
During hours spent alone engaged in the creative task, their thoughts and mindset will be shifted into a state of complete freedom from stress, anxiety and negativity.  Having such experience is something beyond words.
