Did you know?

Our brains have two halves, which specialise in different types of thinking. The right hand excels in lateral thinking, metaphors, intuition, emotion, and holistic perception, whilst the left hand brain likes order, lists, logic, and analysis. Artistic processes have been shown to fire up the whole brain and encourage the two sides to work together, building strong connections between the two. 

"This activity was a great idea I could use to develop existing skills. I was able to create different variations of the daisy. I felt confident and proud of what I'd made. I'm going to send one to a friend who's ill to cheer her up."
