Art is not only appealing to look at, but it also has some advantages to your development. It would not be possible for you to hold a plate or hold a pencil if not for those early art classes. The manner in which the subject activates every bit of your body is the reason. Most of the other topics are stationary, and you are in a seated position while learning. Art forces you to use your creativity and imagination.
A developmental benefit is one that is attached to the growth and the upbringing of an individual. They are benefits that can be easily spotted to be missing from the rest. For example for two children one who can hold and handle scissors in the hand. The other who is not able.
What Are The Developmental Benefits?
1. Your ability to speak
When you were younger, making art talking about it, provided you with the opportunities to learn words for colors, shapes and actions. When toddlers are as young as a year old, parents can do simple activities such as crumpling up the paper and calling it a “ball.” By elementary school, students can use clearer words to discuss their creations or to talk about what feelings are elicited when they see different styles of artwork.
2. Your ability to move
Around age four, you were able to cut straight lines with scissors. And to draw a square and start simple tasks on your own. Many preschool programs emphasize the use of scissors because it develops the dexterity children will need for writing. Many of the motions, such as holding a paintbrush or scribbling with a crayon, are essential to the growth of fine motor skills. Some of the milestones in your life should include drawing a circle and beginning to use safety scissors.
3. Your Ability to learn by seeing
Drawing, sculpting with clay and threading beads on a string all develop visual-spatial skills, which are more important than ever. Even toddlers know how to operate a Smartphone or tablet, which means that even before they can read, kids are taking in visual information. This information consists of cues that we get from pictures or three-dimensional objects from digital media, books, and television.
4. Your ability to tap into your imagination
When people are encouraged to step out by taking risks in creating art, they develop a sense of innovation that will be substantial in their adult lives. The kind of people society needs to make it move forward are thinking, creative individuals who seek new ways and improvements, not people who can only follow directions. Art encourages the process and the experience of thinking and making things better
5. Your brain’s ability to grow and develop
Your brain creates new connections between the brain cells every time you engage in a new activity. Your brain’s ability to develop relationships and change throughout your lifetime is called brain plasticity or neuroplasticity.Creating art stimulates communication between various parts of the brain
6. Your ability to value You
You may stick your kids’ artwork on the refrigerator door to boost their self-esteem. Hanging your latest work of art on the wall can instill in you the same feeling. Creating art increases the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine boosts drive, focus, and concentration. It is called the motivation molecule. It enables you to plan ahead.
