The Benefits of Artistic Creativity | Evergreen Senior Living


When you need a break from normal day-to-day activities, some people enjoy participating in artistic activities. There is a sense of relaxation and comfort in taking on a creative and productive task, creating visual art, preparing a meal, or writing in a journal. A sense of accomplishment can also be uplifting once the project has been completed. Whether it's done in a group or on your own, many worthwhile benefits can come from working with your hands to make something new.

The benefits of doing creative activities regularly can improve so many aspects of life. Art comes in various forms, mediums, and ideas. Just the act of creating something new yourself is a worthwhile experience for anyone. Whether the activity is painting a mug or writing a new story, a creative action is one that can build on itself both in skill and creativity. Engaging in the activity also improves your skills for the next time you try the activity, which can make it even more fun.

Art is something that can bring a great deal of creativity, fun, and new unique skills to your life, whether you are just starting out or have been doing it for years. There are dozens of benefits that can come from simply trying a creative activity. By creating something new, you can improve the dexterity of your hands, as well as your emotional state all at once. And doing art together in a group can improve your social connections and create new ones just by trying something new.

Some of the best creative activities for our seniors are:

  • Painting
  • Cooking
  • Gardening
  • Music
  • Writing
  • Kitting or Sewing
  • Crafting
