Culture Days is a big deal in Canada. I must admit people love these free events and it is also a fantastic motivation to get involved.
We should love culture and we should implement creativity in our schedule regardless of what day or month that is.
People who do arts and creative things get much less depressed and they are less affected by bad news that surrounds us.
They learn living mindfully and consciously, and care about balance: while creativity takes some money that we put in materials, tools and space, it gives back a lot, too. That is not always countable in dollars and measurable by profits, but the gain is rather in experience. That is an incomparable experience, and if you have never tried to create something or engage in creativity, you most likely do not know how uplifting, encouraging and healing this experience can be.
My personal goal is to convince more people to devote some part, even if it is a small part to art and artistic self-expression.
Creativity is life, light and future. Consumerism is a dead-end and self-destruction.
Art culture reveals the nation’s true potential and values.
Although, I have absolutely no sponsors as large art places do, I still wanted to offer everybody to try sketching. Just to see how much fun it can be and that one doesn’t need any previous art experience to get started. I will provide with all materials.
I always bring watercolor sets from my annual trips to Europe. Therefore I will give away 2 watercolor sets which can be used indoors and outdoors for sketching and watercolor painting. If you intended to sign up for either Tuesday daytime or Tuesday night watercolor painting class, so you have a chance to win these watercolor sets tomorrow.
Giveaway: 2 sets of watercolor paints for beginners in painting.
To give some inspiration to these who are interested in acrylic painting, I am attaching 2 images.
Art is light. A large, very textured, light filled acrylic painting “The path of fall”
Acrylic, 30 in x 24 in (76 cm x 61 cm), only for pickup in Ontario since it is quite heavy, $600
Color in waterfall: acrylic on canvas, 24 in x 20 in (61 cm x 51 cm); $420
Ships in Canada approx. $40 and to USA at approx. $50
Culture and art are two sides of one creative experience.
It is rainy and nasty today, but I hope the sun will be out tomorrow.
Therefore, I kindly invite everybody who can make it to come to my studio tomorrow between 1 and 4 pm. I will also show and explain pros and cons of art materials, as well as demonstrate them in action.
Culture days should bring art and creativity to every person in the local community. Just don’t be lazy and come out for a pleasant and great experience!
