Art is so good for the soul and the psyche. It’s a way of working out problems and finding solutions to puzzles we don’t even know we have.
I think everyone should try art-making, but not necessarily with a specific product in mind. It’s the process that’s really important, and the ability to play creatively is essential. Art can be very cathartic.
That is why children’s artwork is so amazing, and that’s why children need art. Think about it. Not only does if develop fine and gross motor skills, but it’s the only thing in a young child’s life over which she has absolute control. She can take a pencil or crayon and cover paper with anything she wants. She can create her own world. That’s empowering!
