Developmental Benefits of Art and Craft

April 27th, 2015

Arts and crafts might express the usual human aesthetics of harmony and balance in a variety of ways but the ultimate motive of such an activity is for the artist or craftsmen himself/herself. While many have made it a profession in the modern age, there are some who still prefer to use it for a variety of benefits that are meant for their own physical and mental satisfaction.

Whether this feeling is limited for a short period or for a longer duration, it doses’t matter as long as it has a positive impact on the artist.

With such a context, take a look at the benefits of art and craft in such a person’s life. Remember such benefits can help develop a mere child as well. So, these advantages have been focused with a general perspective.

Mutual parity:

Art helps children as well as grownups to acquire more use of their body parts. For instance, using both hands to sculpt something will help that person to increase the efficiency of both hands. This will let him/her work more capably with both hands through a mutual coordination.

Increase in visual perception and judging: With increase in artwork, people are able to judge and work more efficiently in other fields. This will help them develop their brain functions for better and quick approach towards daily chores and activities.

Control over oneself:

Depression, stress and other negative aspects of mental life can be demolished with the help of art and craft. Focus and self-control will boost in them which will help to overcome negative feelings more capably. The person will also become more flexible with such an approach.

Everyone Is Creative Really

Creativity Holds A Strange Place in Our Society

It is both admired and looked down on. Parents normally don’t want their children to grow up to be artists. At the same time when they see art they love they admire the work and the artist.

Why is this? I’m not sure maybe it has something to do with preconceptions that artists are weird flighty people. I don’t even know when that misconception began. When did artist change from the honored people that recorded history, created sacred objects, and preformed a valued service? What is it about creativity that makes us both love and dislike it?

I think it may have something to do with the idea that only some people or certain activities are creative. Guess what, everyone is creative! It is true, I’m not lying. The creativity that brings about beautiful works of art is the same creativity that brings about the solution to a problem. It is what helps us write book and successfully budget our money. It is inside all of us waiting to be called to action. For many of us it is like a bit of coal hiding a diamond inside.

This elitist view of creativity is rippling out negativity into our lives. It keeps us from using our imagination to live our dreams and overcome life’s day to day obstacles. Being connected to our creative centers keeps us open to inspiration and leads to AH HA moments.

It also feeds our passion for our project that keeps us working, even when we don’t want to. Creativity simply is bringing something new into existence. It can be any new thing a new song, new photo, new way of dealing with customer service, or new marketing plan. Creativity is not for the sole purpose of making art.

We all have our own process we work through when being creative. Taking the time to learn what your process is makes it easier to start the process whenever you need to. This helps us avoid getting stuck and frustrated when we are forced to produce a product by a dead line or create something we wouldn’t normally choose to. It may be hard to think of creativity this way, but it is inside you waiting to be mined.

There are many things you can do to reconnect with your creative center. I say reconnect because you were born connected and stayed connected until someone told you that creativity was bad or only for special people.

Start paying attention to what you are doing or how you are doing things when inspiration strikes or solutions and ideas come easily to you. Try to meditate or do some other calm relaxing activity daily or at least regularly. Stop telling yourself that you are not creative. Negative self talk kills creativity and our dreams! Be kind and loving to yourself and do something you really enjoy doing as often as you can.
