Whether it’s sketching, painting, making collage, writing… I think art helps us process life in a profound way. This August, we have 17 artists participating in 11 countries … Read More

One friend said that Rekindle Memories is making her record happy times on paper… Making memories come alive by sketching and painting them not only make us rekindle the happy old times but it also forge new memories as we notice one thing today that captures our interest. What a way to savor and be grateful for each moment, don’t you think? Making art depends upon noticing things– things about yourself, your methods, your subject matter. Sooner or later, for instance, every visual artist notices … Read More

What better way than to make art together with other artists from around the world? Without … Read More
