Why Summer Is the Perfect Time to Take an Art Class
After months of being trapped at home during quarantine, many businesses are starting to open back up, following strict measures to adhere to CDC guidelines and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Art schools are just one of the many excellent institutions that are getting back into the swing of things and providing their communities with a creative outlet over the summer. If you started dabbling in a new hobby while you were under stay-at-home orders, or if you are simply looking for something new for the summer, taking an art class is a great way for children, teens, and adults to get out of the house and expand their horizons.
Top Reasons to Take an Art Class This Summer
- Meeting new friends. This is one of the great benefits of taking an art class. Meeting new people is a great socialization tool for children and developing teens, and it benefits adults who have been feeling isolated at home during the pandemic.
- Meeting challenges. Taking a class in an art form or medium that you have no experience with challenges your mind and skills, and allows you to sharpen your abilities and build self-confidence.
- Getting kids prepared for the future. Children benefit from art classes because it improves their critical thinking, problem-solving skills, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills. Developing these attributes helps students as they grow and learn in the years ahead.
- Giving your brain a workout. Many adults work in highly analytical fields, and primarily exercise the right side of their brains. Art is a great way to develop the skills that the left side of the brain is in charge of, and ensures that you’re keeping a good balance.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have had a harsh impact on adults and children alike, and an art class is a great way to relieve the stress everyone is feeling in these difficult times.
