Art Class for Special Needs

How does it feel to be able to hold a brush and paint? As you paint streaks of red, blue, gold upon a blank canvas, how does the act of creation feel? Increasingly independent, right? 

In today's increasingly technology-operated and development-centric world, it is important to harbor an abundance of strength in one's personality. Irrespective of a person's academic or intellectual background, it is imperative for them to be strong, confident and above all, it is imperative for them to feel an integral part of the world and society around them. However, despite the many advancements that our world is witnessing, there is a segment of our population that does not manage to develop the aforementioned attributes owing to lack of resources, care and ever-increasing exclusion. This segment of population can be labeled as children with special needs.

 Owing to their physical, visual or mental impairments, such children find themselves living a relatively slow-paced life as opposed to their peers. They are dependent on either their parental units or an attendant for almost all of their life functions, which hinders their sense of independence. It may seem as though a normal and inclusive life is impossible for such children, but this is not the case. Artistic engagement or indulging in the creation of art proves to be instrumental in opening multiple doors for them.

First and foremost, the act of independent creation instills a sense of self-sufficiency in them. Furthermore, it introduces them to the act of independent choice: as they choose colors to mix and match, they experience a crucial sense of accessible authority over decisions. Additionally, art has scientifically and psychologically been assessed as a form of unconditional catharsis. The repetitive and rapid movement of brush on canvas introduces these children to fast-paced existence which their lives are otherwise independent of. After experiencing this positive transition, recognizing their independent capability to create infused these children with a sense of long-lasting confidence, an emotion which can be positively channeled to boost other spheres of their existence: such as educational development, everyday life functioning and the like. After all, confidence in one field results in confidence everywhere.
