Sharing the joy of painting

My last post reminded me of something I’ve been wanting to do for a while but haven’t gotten around to yet. I have so many paint tubes that I don’t use anymore and I know about this great social initiative here in Antwerp. It’s a non profit artistic platform where people can come together and create and have the opportunity to share their art with the world.

We’ve been there once, there was this presentation of hand painted and collaged slides with music. We were blown away by the beauty and originality of them. The atmosphere was warm and loving. I was thinking to myself how amazing it is that they were facilitating this space so that everyone can enjoy the creative process and inspire each other.

So it’s time to follow my heart, I’ve gathered all the stuff I don’t use anymore and some stuff I love and have more than enough of. I have been debating myself whether or not I should make a blog post about this endeavour because I didn’t want to be braggy about it. But what I do want to do is ask you guys if you maybe have neglected art supplies that you haven’t used for years. Do do know of a non profit organisation in your area that is spreading joy and stability through art? I’m sure they would be so happy if you could share just a few supplies!

On top of that it’s tons of fun, going through your stash and asking yourself which supplies you’re not really using can make other people happy. Oxot, here I come!
