Do you value Art, are you a scribbler?

Anything that helps us appreciate art at whatever age is going to feedback into a stronger more wholesome society.


When we talk about the value of arts and culture to society, we always start with its intrinsic value: how arts and culture can illuminate our inner lives and enrich our emotional world. This is what we cherish…

However, we also understand that arts and culture has a wider, more measurable impact on our economy, health and wellbeing, society and education. It’s important we also recognise this impact to help people think of our arts and culture for what they are: a strategic national resource…

This quote from the Arts Council resonates strongly with me.

I firmly believe art is essential for wellbeing. In the large societal sense but also just on a personal level. You only need to look at the MASSIVE growth in sales of colouring books this year to see that we need art in our lives. If you have ever done any babysitting you will soon recall the joy of colouring in. Have you fought the temptation to buy a book and pens? Are you a few tip pen or an old school pencil fan? Do you keep strictly within the lines or are you a reckless scribbler? Does colour matter, or are you a fan of monochrome? I am a bit of a neat freak however I often get impatient so go for a minimalist look.

Anything that helps us appreciate art at whatever age is going to feedback into a stronger more wholesome society. If you want some inspiration you could drop by Art Finder and see where some have taken their artistic skills. Art is in the eye of the beholder, I’m sure you’ll find something there that inspires you. There’s something there for everyone, although I’d keep the kids and their crayons away if you do indulge your passion for paint and instead of drawing your own you buy a canvas or print.
