Encouraging students and young people to explore creativity with uni-ball pens and you could be benefitting their development more than you know.
There are so many brilliant benefits of a drawing and creative writing. So we heartedly recommend you grab some uni-ball pens and get creative. And let’s face it you have a wide choice of uni-ball pens at your disposal.
Literally, humans are wired to leave their mark on the world. So we want to encourage this. It’s important to note we’re not talking about accomplishment here – we want to take the pressure off on that score. Sure it’s great when people produce a masterly piece of work – and the professional finish our pens produce can obviously help achieve that. But we’re talking about the process of creativity itself – meaning you don’t have to focus on the end outcome rather simply enjoying the practice will be beneficial.
Boost your communication
Getting your creative vibe on is a fantastic way to improve your communication skills. It’s really could for building confidence in this area for people who find it difficult to express themselves in front of people.
Drawing, writing or journaling is a great way of getting ideas and emotions out there. For example drawing out an idea and visualising it will help distill and understand a concept more fully. Writing down feelings may help with communicating your thoughts once it’s explored on the page. Creative journaling will allow you to condense those thoughts, allowing you to visualise and discover the most effective language to use to convey those thoughts.

Doodle for your noodle
Apparently doodling is a great way to connect to the deepest part of the brain. In fact, some research suggests that doodling can help your retain 30% more information than if you just took notes. Why? Well it simultaneously activates your visual, auditory and kinaesthetic modalities of learning.
According to Milan Art Institute art coach John Milan, spending time in this doodling helps clear the mind, refresh the mind and offer solutions to the world’s problems. It helps the artist or sketcher use parts of their mind and to share insight with others.

So next time you’re hitting a wall in terms of thinking or recall, we reckon you should get doodling. How about getting your doodle on and explore creativity with uni-ball pens? Get started with some uni-ball Eye Fine pens. We know it’s a great writing pen, but the pen is also excellent for visual projects too. It produces a precise 0.7mm line and the uni-flow’ system ensures a steady and continuous ink flow so your colour coverage is fantastic too.
