Top 10 Reasons to Draw
Most people think of drawing as a creative outlet. It’s an extra activity for the “creative types”. But that is not true. Drawing has very little to do with creativity. It is about seeing, thinking and sharing oneself. Drawing is a way to explore our thoughts, build our brain and understand the world more effectively. Not only that, drawing gives us a way to express things that words just cannot convey. Check out 10 of the best reasons everyone should be drawing!
Drawing is a way to express yourself
We all see the world differently and doing art lets us show others the world we see.
Drawing is fun
Drawing is not a spelling test or math problems. It’s an adventure. Making something where there was nothing is amazing, and it happens every time!
Drawing is a calming activity
When drawing it’s just you and a piece of paper. No other expectations or worries. Just dive in and be at peace.
Drawing improves fine motor skills
Drawing is a fun, lighthearted way to strengthen the many muscles in the hand, which is very necessary for kids.
Drawing connects us
Drawing crosses all ethnic groups, age and nationalities and reminds us that we share the same human experiences.
Drawing increases brain activity
Drawing is one of the few activities that uses both sides of the brain simultaneously. And when we draw new things, we expand brain activity and knowledge.
Drawing shows how you feel
Drawing says things word can’t express. It can be as simple as exciting colors, a silly face or more personal thoughts that are hard to say out loud.
Drawing unleashes the imagination
Drawing is visual writing, the language of the right side of our brain, where creativity and imagination live.
Drawing develops problem-solving skills
There are a multitude of decisions to be made while drawing, and it’s a great, no pressure way to develop our unique ways of looking at things.
Drawing is a cool trick to impress your friends
Drawing is a skill we all possess, but most don’t develop. When we do see someone that has developed those skills, we take notice. Be the cool kid and learn to draw!
