We're a big fan of acrylics when it comes to painting our creations. They're easy to work with, and we can get as messy as we'd like since clean up is usually easy (usually 🤣). What's your favorite medium to create with?👇🤔 #painting🎨 #freearts #letsgetcreative

Sometimes you just need to change your perspective. Art can help with that. Are you stuck on a certain project or can't even get started? Perhaps changing the way you're approaching the subject matter will give you a new way of looking at things. #newperspective #changeyourapproach #arttips

It's no fun if you don't get your hands dirty, are we right? . What's the last art project you were all consumed in? Tell us below and share all the spills and thrills. . #freearts #letsgetmessy #nonprofitlife

Over the past decade, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has found strong evidence showing that art can have a positive effect on young children (infants through eight-year-olds). . Multiple other studies have found a correlation between artmaking and emotional regulation, which is a central tenet of art therapy. . Getting your kids out and experiencing the world around them is key to creating better communication and outlets for them. . What's the last art related activity you did at home? . #artathome #freeartsla #kidsarethefuture

Sometimes it's the little things, like taking marker or crayon to paper, that make someone burst out of their shell. Read on as a Free Arts Volunteer Mentor shares a story. . "As we began to set up the tables, I saw one little girl around the age of 10 who was really shy and to herself. As the children began to free draw, I still continued that she had no interaction with the other children and was very to herself. . I began my icebreaker which involved “one minute drawing”, I gave everyone a topic to draw about. As we all began to draw, I saw little by little that the little girl began to smile and enjoy the activity. We continued this activity for about five minutes which involved five different topics to draw. . I gave everyone the chance to share their drawings which she was so eager to do. By one ice breaker, she became comfortable enough to share and interact with others. . It felt wonderful to know that through an activity she was able to come out and be creative." . #freeartsla #storytime #arttherapy

"These smaller interactions [with children] evidenced to me the crucial role of artistic process for fostering confidence and community." .

Our art is a story we're sharing with the world. It offers up the opportunity to talk with our audience, not at it. . What is the message we're trying to convey? What conversation are we wanting have? All important questions when trying to reveal and discover new qualities about ourselves. . #quotestoliveby #revealyourself #freeartsla
