The Hidden Value of Art
Creating art or admiring art has value that is far beyond the art itself. Some people call it by different names like art therapy or indulgent pleasure. I personally think that it should be called the hidden value of art. It is a well being tool that helps a person explore values and ideas that they might not be able to express or see in any other form. Exploring how you feel is important to such personal experiences as self-esteem, confidence, understanding feelings, exploring emotions, relieving stress, reducing anxiety, controlling depression or overcoming illness and disabilities. The hidden value of art includes many, many benefits. To be healed emotionally, physically, spiritually, or mentally is a miracle. Art can do it. For this hidden value art is of great importance in our lives.
