October 25 is National Art Day, a day to celebrate all forms of art: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, music, and more. Whether you’ve never crafted a piece of art before or you were a born expert, consider it your day to channel your inner artist!
The arts make our lives richer and spark boundless creativity and innovation. They contribute to the physical and emotional wellbeing of individuals, build bridges between cultures, nurture understanding, and strengthen our communities. They are fundamental to healthy societies, economies, and educational systems.
Creative Ways to Celebrate
There are many ways to celebrate art and artists this month. Visit local shops and galleries and pick out a painting, sketch, scarf, jewelry, sculpture, or a book of poetry that speaks to you. You could also see a concert, an opera, or visit the theater. If creating art from scratch isn’t your thing, do you take amazing photos? Snap some pictures of fall inspirations and choose a few to become decorative and repositionable PhotoSquares for your home, office, or dorm. Leave your photos as they are, spruce them up with a filter, or use an app that lets you transform them into a cartoon or watercolor painting!
Check out these four free apps that turn photos into works of art:
- Prisma: Turn your photos into paintings with a wide variety of styling choices!
- Dreamscope: Excellent for high-resolution photos.
- Deepart: Combine the style of famous artists like Van Gogh with your photography skills for a masterpiece.
- Neuralstyle.art: Transform your shots into cartoon or ink!
Once you’ve perfected your favorite photos, send them to PhotoSquared and we’ll print them on 8×8 foam-core squares, which can easily attach to almost any surface! Be the creator of your own home or office gallery.
There are a million ways to be creative and colorful in our day-to-day lives, so don’t be afraid to express yourself in ways you may never have imagined!
