Art & The Brain

 

When it comes to science and art, research has found the two can not be talked about independently because creativity involves brain activity. Did you know through neurological processes used in creating art, a person’s perspective on life can be changed in a positive way?

Including the arts in a child’s education is healthy for brain development and in my opinion, it should not be left out of the curriculum. Otherwise how would a child be able to explore his or her creative capacities?

One of the most convincing books I have ever read about creativity and the brain is by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor called My Stroke of Insight. If you have not read it plan to do so. I don’t want to be a spoiler and tell you too much but Dr. Taylor’s personal story relates to today’s theme.

That’s all for today. Do return to this page on our website.Our goal for our blog writings is to shed light on art which adds color to our life.
