What better way to spend Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday than with a worldwide celebration of art? It’s no coincidence that the International Association of Art (IAA/AIAP) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) chose da Vinci’s birthday when they established April 15th as a day to recognize the importance of art in our lives. This historical artist’s work embodies all that we appreciate about art including creativity, diversity, and its ability to cross time and culture.
Since 2012, World Art Day has become a day to express yourself through art, share in the creation and appreciation of art with others, visit art museums, and learn about world-famous artists. Art offers so many benefits including making you feel happier just by looking at it, giving you a way to express your emotions, and helping you create an environment that reflects your personality. We encourage you to take April 15th as an “art day” and create your own artwork. To get you started, here are just a few products to try.
