Celebrate Earth Day the creative way this year!
Every April 22nd we get a day dedicated to celebrating the planet Earth. Earth Day marks the anniversary of the start of the modern environmental movement which took place April 22nd, 1970. Earth Day is a day in which people all over the world can come together and give back to the earth, or spend some time outside at the very least. While you certainly can plant a tree this Earth Day, we also invite you to create a drawing, chalk mural, or painting of a tree this Earth Day! Spend some time outside creating with neighbors, loved ones, friends, family, or yourself Earth Day 2022. If by chance the weather isn’t ideal for creating outdoors this Earth Day, create a drawing or painting beside your window, perhaps even of your view! The creative opportunities are endless when it comes to celebrating planet Earth.
