THE ARTISTIC TOUCH
Like many art forms, painting is an instrument of personal transformation and growth. It is a process of self-discovery and self-expression that involves making choices, taking risks and exploring new ideas and challenges. Paintings capture moments in time that transcend beyond two dimensional digital photos, penetrate beyond the superficial, and offer a glimpse into the deeper realms of the human experience.
On a practical level, art enhances creativity which is crucial for innovation and adaptation. Those who foster their creative abilities tend to see multiple solutions to a problem, employ original thoughts, and use their imagination. As a field, art promotes these skills, encouraging unique and divergent responses and diverse ways of looking at things and situations. Participation and exploration of one's artistic abilities develops emotional, social, cognitive, and physical motor skills very similar to that of music and dance.
