Artistic creation develops and engages both cognitive hemispheres of the mind, the left hemisphere (practical and analytical), operates with an intensified neural synergy with the right hemisphere (creativity and imagination) due to the artistic process. Furthermore, exercising memory, attention, problem-solving skills, visual perceptual skills, hand-eye coordination, dexterity, muscle control, and decision making the mind is able to strengthen its connection with the body.
We need artists from every medium and every discipline to be actively involved in the growth and development of the Canadian art community.
