The Power of Art

The goal of Autumn Arts is to provide information about the arts for students and hobbyists. We believe that creativity has the power to enhance a person's well-being as well as their skill sets in other areas. The ability to create art is one of the traits that makes us human. Celebrate your spirit and express yourself by delving into the world of the arts and exploring what you can create!

Did you know that producing visual art can improve your sensorimotor skills? This is just one example of how art can change your brain. Art is also important on a cultural level. It allows us to see things from another perspective while bridging gaps between communities and communicating messages that strengthen our connections. Art has been used to revitalize neighborhoods by transforming abandoned areas and bringing neighbors together to take a sense of pride in their home. By creating a vibrant neighborhood, art is able to attract bright, creative people who want to move in, start a business, and stimulate local economies.

Art is used therapeutically because the positive impacts are undeniable. Many studies have supplied evidence in support of the stress-relieving effects of mindfulness-based activities. When a person creates art, they find themselves in a similar meditative state that unleashes their creative flow. The process of creating art disrupts patterns of stressful circular thoughts. The creative process also boosts confidence and inspires a sense of accomplishment. When working to complete a project, the artist is practicing their ability to focus and nurturing their drive to complete a task. Art literally makes us feel good! Science has demonstrated that art stimulates the creation of dopamine, the neurotransmitter that makes us feel happy and relaxed. Dopamine also prompts the brain to create new neurons, which prepares the brain for learning.

You don't have to be a painter or sculptor in order to be an artist. There are many other visual mediums to work with, and areas like music, theater, and writing also fall into the category of arts. Autumn Arts can help you explore the many different possibilities within the world of art!
