ArTs at Bost – Touching Lives
What can art do?
Art is more than paint on a canvas. It has educational applications. It teaches self-expression and communication, as well as mathematics. It can also create an avenue for release, and a moment in time that belongs only to the individual creating the art. The world falls away, along with the stress of everyday living.
Health Benefits of Art
Art has many benefits and applications. Art can be used in education, teaching mathematics, English, communication, and self-expression. In addition, art has many health benefits. Art creates the opportunity for artists to release pent up emotions, and to communicate in a manner that does not require written or spoken word. It creates feelings of peace, calm, happiness, and fulfillment. It may also boost feelings of self-esteem and self-worth. There are also instances in which individuals who suffer from behavioral health disorders experience a temporary relief of symptoms while fully engaged in the practice of their art. Some individuals report a decrease in stress and anxiety. Whether you’re an artist or a patron of the arts, when you support the art community, you are supporting education, health, and well-being in others – you’re building a better community and a better future.
