Fall is almost here! It's time to break out the cozy sweaters, soak in the crisp autumn air, and take part in your favorite autumn activities with loved ones. This month, we’re taking everything on our fall bucket list and turning it into a creative opportunity! From pumpkin decorating with the family to creating Halloween comics to spook your friends, we’re giving you a list of ways to awaken your inner artist and embrace all that fall has to offer.
Nothing says FALL like a pumpkin patch!
One of the best ways to welcome fall is spending a crisp, sunny afternoon picking pumpkins with the family. With our non-toxic permanent marker set in 20 vibrant colors, you can turn this classic fall activity into a fun project for the whole family. Allow everyone to pick their perfect pumpkin and head home to kick off a fun creative activity with the family! Gather everyone around the table to decorate their pumpkins with funny faces or abstract designs. With our versatile set of acrylic-markers, your family can use these tools to glide along a pumpkin’s curved surface, easily transitioning from bold swatches to thin lines. Make this a leisure activity or challenge your family by turning it into a friendly competition; either way, your end result will be pumpkins with personality you can proudly display throughout the house this season. Once the pumpkin decorating is done, you can continue use of these markers in a more traditional way with our Mixed Media Pad. Use both tools to extend upon your family’s creative adventures this fall!
What’s better than a homemade apple pie?
One of our favorite things about Fall is homemade apple pie, so we're giving you an excuse to indulge in this sweet treat with a fun work of art. Gather your baking supplies and some fresh apples - make sure to set some aside in a bowl, because they’ll make for a great still-life! Once the pie is in the oven and the mess from preparation is cleaned, place the fruit bowl in the center of the table and grab your art supplies. Our Watercolor Premium Artist Paint, 12ml Tubes - Set of 24 is perfect for this activity. Complete with highly pigmented paints, you’ll be able to capture the variety of shades presented in the fruit in front of you. If you prefer pumpkin or any other fall pie, there is the perfect color in this set to create that still-life as well!
Fall foliage and gouache!
When you think of fall, you probably think of its gorgeous foliage. Trees once full of green shed leaf by leaf, coating the ground in layers of orange, yellow, and red. The colorful landscape only lasts for so long, so make it a point to truly embrace the foliage this year. Embark on a nature walk with some friends or your loved ones until you find the perfect scenic spot to inspire your creativity. With our Gouache Paint, Earth Tones, 12ml Tubes - Set of 12 and a watercolor pad, you can enjoy a fun, artistic fall activity. These paints are non-toxic and suitable for artists of all levels and artistic background. Paint shapes of leaves and add dimension with differentiating layers of the these stunning earth tones paints. Encourage yourself (or a loved one) to truly admire nature and immortalize this season’s beauty in a work of art look back on throughout the seasons to come.
