Art stimulation is a crucial ingredient for creativity.

Using visual arts as stimulation develops new neural pathways and helps to break out of the cycle of experience-dependent categorisation.

Art helps you to think outside of the box.

This leads to lateral thinking – Lateral thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. The term was coined in 1967 by Edward de Bono.
