Did you know that it’s National Art Day? That’s right, an entire day dedicated to appreciating – and taking part in – art! Art is all around us, and it’s nice to take a moment to really soak it in every once in a while.
Life can be so busy with work, school, and responsibilities at home filling our days, and art can sadly fall off of our list of priorities. The truth, however, is that we need art.
So, this National Art Day and beyond, make it a point to get involved. Adults and kids alike can express their artistic sides by…
Making Arts and Crafts
Arts and crafts are so much fun! There’s nothing quite like starting a project with a pile of materials and ending with a fully formed work of art.
If it all seems a little too daunting to start from scratch (it can be hard to know where to start on a project!), then why not tackle one of the many boxed art & activity kits from our online store? They’re mostly geared toward kids, but let’s be honest – adults will have a blast with some of them, too!
Visiting an Art Museum
Visiting an art museum may just be one of the best ways to spend any day. There’s something truly special about so many amazing works of art, collected throughout decades and even hundreds of years, all on display under one roof. So much unique history, all on display for us to see!
There are art museums scattered all across New England, but since we’re local to Boston, we do have a few favorites…
- The Worcester Art Museum (Worcester, MA)
- The Peabody Essex Museum (Salem, MA)
- The Museum of Fine Arts Boston (Boston, MA)
The best part about these museums – and most art museums – is that the whole family can get involved! Many museums offer exhibits and activities for kids to enjoy, so go ahead – make a day out of it!
