Viewing art can provide some of the same benefits as creating art. Many of us don't feel creative or artistic, and for many adults, making art seems too childish. Well, try taking a trip to a local art museum, gallery, or artist market! When we view artwork objectively, it can promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, improve our memory and cognition, and increase our quality of life.
One study by a researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, found that women gain more benefit from actively making art, and men gain more benefits from passively observing art. Neurobiologists have found that viewing art you find beautiful releases dopamine (the "feel good" hormone) into brain and mimics the physical sensations of falling in love! Wow!
