Five reasons to learn Art!

I am an interior designer by education and I have been learning art and different skills for a while. Many people admired what I was doing and it made me so happy, but some comments like “It is great what you are doing, but I will never be able to do it” made me slightly sad. I think everyone should at least give themselves a chance to do some type of art.

5 Reasons to Learn Art!

#1 It is a great therapy for your mind and soul

When the creative juices flow from your brain to your hands, big changes will happen and you will suddenly feel content and happy with your being. It is extremely fulfilling.


#2 Your time will be filled with productivity

I don’t know about you, but when I am productive, I love myself even more. Seeing the fruits of my hard work in class just fills me with joy and self-appreciation.


#3 You will never be bored

The great thing about art is the endless possibilities. Art could be done and used in endless formats. For example, if you learn to paint, you can paint on paper, wood, walls, plates and anything your heart desires. You can use any colours, any shapes and anything really. There is no place for boredom in art and even if you feel bored, you can start all over again!


#4 You will uncover your hidden powers

When you are making/learning art, you will discover new things that your brain and hands are capable of. It is a journey to self-discovery.


#5 You will make new friends

Some of my really good friends that I can’t imagine my life without, were art classmates. I met them there first and we instantly connected on art and now we just get together to do more art and encourage each other. Having artists friends is so much fun, they just see the world differently.
