Humans love to express themselves. Participating in art, in particular as a group where there is complete freedom of expression, no right or wrong, boosts mental health making people happier and healthier. Artistic team building activities are relaxing, lowering stress levels bringing calm and mental clarity. Participants are taken outside their regular routine and become totally immersed in creativity. This is like a mental holiday from normal thought processes.
When humans take part in a new activity, one that pushes them outside their comfort zone, it increases brain connectivity and plasticity through creating new connections between brain cells. Focus, concentration and creative thinking are required to succeed. Creative team building exercises enhance team collaboration and problem-solving skills. Since there is no right or wrong, participants are able to develop unique solutions and discuss them with the group. Creating artwork as a group brings a shared sense of achievement. It boosts each participant’s self-esteem developing a can-do attitude. Charged with dopamine, participants feel bonded and motivated to take on new challenges.
