Benefits of Crafting for Teens

As with all creative pursuits, craft classes for teens are a fantastic creative outlet. Through art, teens can express themselves freely, and sometimes without realising it! Subconsciously, teens express their inner thoughts and feelings through their artwork. Art is a also great way for them to reflect on and manage their emotions. The process of turning a thought into a tangible piece of art fosters confidence improves self-esteem. Moreover, creative pursuits are proven to have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.

Research has shown that crafting can be an uplifting experience for teens. It can improve confidence, self-esteem, and reduce stress levels overall. Teens who suffer from stress, PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, insomnia and even chronic pain have noticed a reduction in symptoms simply by incorporating crafts into their lives.

Crafting creates a situation very similar to that of meditation. When engaged in crafting, teens are focusing on only what is right in front of them. In those moments, time stands still. They are able to forget the stressors of the day and be part of something completely separate.

In addition, crafting stimulates the production of dopamine, the “feel good” neurotransmitter, that is responsible for pleasure and enjoyment.
