Why Art is Important

When people experience trauma in their lives, the process of healing and recovery can be complicated. Often, the pain from the memories and scars is too difficult to be spoken or even written. Self-expression through the arts and music helps to heal wounds and pave paths for recovery unlike anything else. It allows children and adults to be themselves, free of judgment and fear.

Studies have shown that creating art decreases levels of anxiety, lowers blood pressure and increases feelings of security and well-being. It heightens the feelings of love and happiness. The process of collaborating on artistic projects with other people helps develop awareness and increases compassion, resulting in a deep sense of community and empowerment.

Additionally, long-term benefits of expression through the arts and music help create a more positive self-image by developing confidence and curiosity, which are the keys to progress and success in the world.
