When was the last time you pick up a pen to draw or make a craft? Kid’s time? Or can’t even remember?
When we grows older, we started to put ourselves in a box. Thoughts such as “I can’t do this, my drawing is terrible, I do not want others to judge me, he/she did better than me, my drawings are never perfect and etc etc” will come into our mind.
Look back when we were kids, everything are new to us, when teacher ask us to draw a tree, we start to imagine a tree and draw whatever it comes into our mind. Even if we do not see that object before, we also can draw according to teacher’s description. The outcome may not look exactly like a real tree, but it was the most beautiful painting we made, because the imagination and creativity are so unique.
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” ~Pablo Picasso
Mural, doodle, scribbles, collage or symbols… just draw or do whatever you like to make your own wall of fame. These pieces of art are my collections, and the number are increasing as I given some canvas frame for my family and friends to draw whatever they want. Nobody going to judge you, just make it the way you want. Every time I look on my wall, it makes me happy.
Art and creativity have no limits, it is a place we can express ourselves, release our tension and expand our creativity and imagination. In 2010, the American Journal of Public Health published a review titled, The Connection Between Art, Healing, and Public Health. This study definitely encourage us to make more arts because it benefits us mentally and physically.
