Art and the Brain
ART & BRAIN PLASTICITY
Neuroscience shows that the human brain is a constantly developing and changing organism.
By including Artistic Expression and Creativity in our regular life schedule, we expose our brain to new ideas and new skills, sparking constant changes that reorganize and develop new neural pathways and improved connections.
Just as physical exercise develops our body, being 'In the Art zone' helps maintain our brain, our breathing, our emotions and body systems, as we relax, restore and rejuvenate our wellbeing in the same way as Meditation but easier to access.
Perfect for persons who struggle to 'switch off' and relax.

What to Expect:
Confident Art comes from a relaxed Art Creator, thus classes are supported by soothing calm-inducing background music. Content usually results from student suggestions or requests made during a previous lesson.
To cater to levels from total beginner, students are shown a skill, then choose an image to create to practice that skill while incorporating their individual likes into it. Because individuality is encouraged, no two images within a class usually turn out the same, for every student, irrespective of experience has a unique Artist hiding inside which can't wait to surface and turn the source material into their 'own' original artwork.
