Abstract


"The focus of artistic creativity often falls on features of innovation, individuality, and imagination. This paper focuses on its most fundamental nature art as image writing. In the last few decades, more and more findings of advanced neuroscience have discovered potential neurobiological causes of art. Indeed, with or without these scientific evidences, anthropologists and philosophers have hypothesized that art making, is a behavior unique to human. It evolved as a powerful means of expression and communication that was essential to the survival of human as a successful species in evolution. Using findings of a research project of art facilitation for youths with behavioural problems, this paper illustrates the expressive and communicative power of art and how creativity can be used and researched in social setting for people in need"
