Painting and creative growth

In our series "The benefits of painting" we are starting with how painting and creative growth go hand in hand. 

When they are younger, a lot of people categorise themselves as either right-brain or left-brain individuals and determine that this is who they will be for the rest of their lives. People with artistic, right-brained tendencies paint more easily. However, this does not imply that left-brained people cannot benefit from painting.

Left-brained persons naturally possess two traits: practise and focus, which enable them to master creative skills at their own speed.
