Improving Observation with Art

There are a lot of things going on around us and so much to be learned from. Unfortunately, engrossed and chained in the web of our hectic schedules, we all fail to observe and appreciate the beauty and lessons that our exterior surroundings have to offer. We have almost lost touch with any external observations. Practicing visual art helps to regain this touch and hone our powerful skills of observation.

Drawing helps us in noticing tiny details of our surroundings, ignite innovative thoughts, and become open to looking at the triggers of positive and negative behavior in the people around us. This helps us emerge as an individual who notices a change in the environment and acts accordingly. We learn more when we start paying attention to colors, shapes, how things are composed, and balance and harmony in nature. A developed sense of observational power also implies healthy brain function and easy grasping of facts and knowledge from the outer world. This helps students to excel in academic fields where they understand what they learn and recollect it to a fruitful implementation in all practical fields. Healthy observation feeds curiosity, and generates self-understanding of questions and matured interpretations which are significantly useful in life. It is also about problem-solving where one observes and identifies a problem and eventually ideates, and creates innovative solutions. There are multiple benefits of observation and it largely improves with artistic practices. The involvement of children in art classes helps them learn about mediums, techniques, and concepts which develops their power to pay keen attention to details around them. It helps them focus on the right things and take the right actions to better the present situation. We should always practice healthy means of being aware of the environment and what is happening around us. The more we stay aware, the more we strive to make the earth a better place to live in. Humans are fortunate to be gifted with the ability to observe. And visual art will awaken the sharp observer in you and you will see a lot of things that were always in front of you, yet somehow you failed to see them before. 

Good skills of observation are required in all professional fields. Observation is not merely looking at something. To observe means to also think critically, analyze and interpret. A lot of experiments have proved that time visits to museums and exercising observation of artworks, improve focused viewing and enhance the skills of students as practitioners in various fields of medicine, engineering, and filmmaking. We can always learn something new if we develop good skills to observe which benefits our cognitive development. Though kids have an innate ability to observe and analyze the things around them, in today's digital world kid's behavior towards the outer world is changing. Their focus is more on electronic gadgets rather than being towards the profoundness of nature and life around them. Natural observation is an advantage for every human being.
