Doing art works does not entail receiving extensive new training in using art materials, it does require we reclaim our innate curiosity about nature and others. We need to restart to focus on and discover beauty in nature and in other people and be less reserved with our creativity.
In terms of the practice's benefit for the society, there is a consensus that reducing violence or the violent aspect of the culture is a priority. Research has demonstrated that offenders who received art therapy services exhibited a marked change in their behavior and attitude, an improvement in their mood, socialization and problem-solving abilities, and greater cooperation with the staff and their peers. I also dare to claim that politicians who create art works regularly are less likely to wage wars than leaders who cannot appreciate and create beauty.
