The world of arts has been recognized for many centuries now. From the era of Pliny, the Elder to up to the digital arts, creativity and the love for aesthetics have been observed and practiced by many people around the globe. As they say, when you have an artist kid, you have a genius in the family. In an article written,

It was mentioned that artists are geniuses too because they see beauty from a different perspective. They might not do a lot of calculations or solve an equation but their in-depth interpretation of beauty is something to considered a gift of intelligence. 

Sadly, others still think that artistry cannot contribute to the economy and it could not help society build something that is concrete. The following data might be the antithesis of that claim because of the following reasons. 

a.In 2019, the industry of Arts and production had created a $919.7 billion contribution to the economy which was equivalent to 4.3% of domestic product. 

b.From 1998-2019, the arts and culture sector contribution to GDP grew up to 76.9% 

c.The US had $33 billion in arts and cultural commodities in 2019. The country also exported $78.1 billion and imported $45.3 billion worth of arts and culture.The artist's creativity and originality would be the third-to-the-highest in-demand skill predicted for 2022. 

So, looking at these figures, shall we still think that art is just an extracurricular activity? Art, as it is one of the highest forms of expressing thoughts has a lot of

psychological and physical benefits to a child which would be the next part of our topic today. In particular, we will focus on the form of art which is painting or drawing. In this part, we will know the areas of the brain that is becoming highly functional when a child becomes inclined with the form of art. Then, we will also talk about the physical benefits of it. So, let's start the discussion now.

 In an article written by Tessera of Brandon, creative hobbies such as painting and drawing can bring lots of psychological benefits. These are:

a.instigates stress relief: These days, we know that most children are indulging themselves in digital games, and sometimes it is the main cause of frustration and anger for them. Once they are allowed to draw and paint-regardless of she drew stick figures-their frustrations could be transmuted to a more productive and safer activity that would not compromise his health. 

b.fuels up creative growth: Painting is not limited to right-brained individuals. Although creativity is innate to these people, left-brainers (who are analytical) can freely practice painting and their inclination to intricacy and precision could be boosted 

c.bolsters memory: People who put their creativity on avenues like writing, drawing, and painting have the higher chances of boosting their memory and avoid conditions like Dementia and Alzheimer's 

d.improves problem-solving skills: At times, a painter finds it challenging to make an outcome that is mind-blowing-from conceptualizing to putting the right combination of colors, these perplex an artist but as he tries testing the waters, he'll be able to hone a skill that could help him in the future. Hence, it is important to let him explore this craft. 

Now that we have talked about the psychological benefits of painting, we'll discuss the physical benefits of painting for children:

a.It can aid fine motor development: Through painting, they could be able to practice their hands; making every muscle move and help develop their bones. 

b.It can develop their hand-eye coordination: Painting can stimulate their eyesight and hand movements simultaneously.

c.At a young age, you may be able to guide your child in developing a good posture as they paint on a canvas while sitting in front of the adjustable drafting table.

d.Painting can develop his verbal language: When they try painting, they can express their thoughts. If you notice, some kids make a story as they draw or paint. At times, they are very eager to talk about what they drew and what it is about.
