Art & Personality Development

Visual arts education vitalizes problem-solving and critical thinking skills, enlightening students on how to interpret, critique, and use the visual information they encounter to make decisions based on their experiences. It promotes self-esteem and provides a common ground across stereotypes and prejudices which ensures healthy personality growth of any individual. 

Any work of art can touch us deeply—rousing our emotions, stimulating critical thinking, sharpening our perceptions, and fostering kindness. It connects us to what lies inside us and also what lies inside someone else. Research shows that a person's interest in art is more strongly correlated to certain personality traits than to social class, age, or gender. Learning visual art has wide-reaching benefits for children providing them with the tools to think creatively, innovate and appreciate diverse cultures and backgrounds. It encourages children to explore their emotions, expand their imagination, and help them develop their own, unique voice. Each discipline of art including drawing, painting, and sculpting engages a child's brain, body, and emotions in different ways to encourage their confidence and find joy in self-expression. Studies conclude that because of the confidence gained and enhanced communication skills, they become empowered in whatever career path they decide to take up as young adults. Art classes allow children to share and exchange thoughts with instructors as well as other kids in the room. They are exposed to different ranges of mediums and encounter healthy interactions which improve their skills of speaking and thinking. Kids develop the patience to listen to the discussions and get a chance to express their ideas as well. These are essential qualities that contribute to the personal development of a child in the long run. Exploring the arts is fun and rewarding on so many levels - intellectually, spiritually, and creatively. When we enjoy and look at someone else's art, we see the world through their eyes. When we create our art, we allow others to see it through ours. Whether you create your art or appreciate the beauty and genius of the great masters, it uplifts and inspires you beyond your everyday consciousness. Enjoying art is relaxing, therapeutic, and rejuvenating. Learning about the arts contributes to personal growth and development by stimulating our senses and sensibilities and by awakening the creative and expressive aspects of our being.

Practicing art also sharpens their observational and analytical abilities which helps them in conducting a mature behavior and disciplined nature. They become more empathetic towards their friends, learn to value relations, and cultivate good moral values. Hence art provides a holistic experience and plays an important role in the personal growth and development of a child.
