MIND - INNATE VS ATTAINED ARTISTIC ABILITIES
  • Some people do have innate abilities, and thus can naturally perform better than others in a particular subject. They have revered interest in the subject, and progressively improve their skills with uninterrupted practice (google Neuroplasticity). But talent can be also be learnt and developed by those consider untalented. They can also achieve similar result with intense practice. The fact is that people are often more creative than they think. It's said if you can write, you can draw as well. Everyone can learn to draw and paint, and they do it extremely well. Spending time with an artist can help you unlock your artistic abilities and the required skills. You can learn to draw by drawing, which can be achieved by experimenting with art material of different types.

BENEFITS OF FINE ARTS
  • Visual fine art activities are therapeutic and improves cognitive abilities, focus, concentration, fine motor abilities, imagination, patience, critical and creative thinking etc., which in turn leads to practical benefits such as better decision making, solutions to the problems, organizing capabilities, self confidence, goal Setting and achieving, perfection in work, out of box thinking and joy.
  • As per ancient Indian scriptures, the pineal gland is a grosser form of Agya Chakra, i.e., Third Eye and is responsible for concentration and creativity related to visual art, where creation is involved. Till the age 14 or so, pineal gland is active and fully functional. As the age advances, the pineal gland gets calcified and passes on control to the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the puberty in the children. That’s why most of the children are born artists, but they start losing their natural artistic ability as the age advances. There are many techniques, which can re-activate the Third Eye, and performing Visual Art is one of the techniques. An act of observation involves the observer, the observed and the observation. When the observer is acutely absorbed on an object, then all three fuse into each other, and pure awareness about the object remains. During this process of acute observation, conscious mind (observer) goes into a state of inertia; and control is passed on to subconscious mind, which is beyond unit, time and space. This is technically known as Samadhi (Absorption) on an object. Creating and viewing art triggers a surge in feel-good chemicals i.e. Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin and Endorphins.
  • Great Sage Patanjali, describe the word Samadhi in his scripture Yoga Sutra (chapter Vibhuti Pada, Sutra # from 1 to 4). When mind is fixed on an object or a place is known as Concentration (Dharana). After practice, when the concentration becomes uninterrupted, it is known as meditation (Dhyana). In meditation, when only essence of the object or place remains and also when the Self appears to be absent, that state is known as absorption (Samadhi) on an object or place. Collective practice of concentration (Dharana), meditation (Dhyana) and absorption (Samadhi) is known as Samyama, which is technical name given to the above process.
