As a teacher or owner of a studio, you have a strong love for the arts. You know what it’s like to fall in love with art, no matter what kind of art you do. The value of art in society can’t be overstated, and it spreads across borders and cultures. These are the main tangible and intangible things we know about it so far.
For the simple reason, that art is vital.
It’s everywhere. If you hear your favorite song on the radio or drive by a beautiful mural, you see art every day. We know that these places make our lives better, but it’s common to forget about the bigger picture.
Why is art important? That’s the question we want to answer. When we answer this question with research-based information, we hope to help both studio owners and teachers spread their love of the arts to more people.
In the first place, it encourages people to be able to express themselves and come up with new
The way we communicate and express ourselves is through art, and as humans, we’re drawn to art as a way to do this. Toddlers love to draw, sing, and dance, and they also like to play with their toys. It’s a way for them to show off before they can talk.
Taking part in the arts may even help kids with their language, motor skills, and visual learning skills. Four times more likely: Research shows that young people who regularly take part in the arts as children are four times more likely to be given recognition for their academic work later on,
Art can also help people in therapy dig deeper and express emotions that are hard to talk about.
Activities in art therapy can help children (and adults) deal with things that have happened in the past and the present. Important: Children between the ages of six and 12 were asked to draw a house as a distraction when they were thinking about something bad. They were able to improve their mood compared to kids who were told to draw the bad thing or copy another drawing.
It helps us all learn the soft skills we need.
Society needs art more than what we do in our free time. It can also help people do their jobs better, too.
When someone wants to get a job, they need to be able to do things like analyze data or keep track of money. It also helps if you have good soft skills because many employers know that they are very important. These intangible traits are hard to measure and often hard to define. A person’s ability to adapt to change, think creatively, or work well with other people are some examples.
There is no better way to learn these important soft skills than through the arts. These skills make us better people and better coworkers at work.
It gives historical context.
There are many ways that art and human history go hand in hand. People spend their lives studying cave art, Shakespearean plays, and so much more because they want to learn more about the world around us.
The more we look at art from the past, the more we can learn about other generations and times. There are many ways that we can learn about the lives of people who came before us through art. People who come after us will be able to learn about what’s going on now by looking at the art we leave behind.
It’s like this: “Looking at art from the past helps us become who we are.” The way we speak, feel, and see the world around us changes when we look at how other people have done things before.
Because of art, people can have healthy and thought-out discussions about different cultures.
Often, art is controversial or new. As a result, when art stirs up a storm, it can start healthy debates that lead to better things for everyone in the world. Instead of arguing, art lets us think about, respond to, and make changes in the world.
As a result, how does this play out in the real world? Those who do art at school are twice as likely to help out as those who don’t do it. They are also 20% more likely to vote when they are young adults.
It gives us a place to meet as a group.
Beyond personal growth, it’s important to know how the arts have a bigger impact on society as a whole. People from all over the world come together through the arts to make their cities and countries better.
From fine art shows to community theater in the park, the arts give people from all walks of life a chance to get together. There have been a lot of studies that show that art in rural areas, in particular, can help the economy grow. It also strengthens the relationships between the people who live in these places, which is even better.
It’s also important to note that art is important in a society when it comes to tourism. People who live in cities like New York City and Seattle can go to a lot of museums and theaters all day. However, even in small towns across the United States, and the rest of the world, the arts offer unique economic opportunities that aren’t found anywhere else. There are jobs, money, and places for growth because of this type of tourism.
