There are many benefits to being a painter that make it a rewarding career, including providing a means of communication, serving as a form of therapy, increasing brain activity, improving emotional intelligence and a means of learning about culture. For many people, painting is rewarding because it is fun.
Painting offers an alternative way to communicate on a meaningful, personal level, which is beneficial to everyone, but especially those people that have difficulty with expression due to autism, shyness or other conditions. It helps reduce stress while increasing relaxation and joy. By detaching herself from the physical world, a painter is able to momentarily forget about physical pain or mental anguish.
