Welcome to the FrostArt ‘Outside In’ blog. Thank you for joining in. If you have ideas that you would like to try let me know and they could be included.
Saturday April 4th is Slow Art Day
This is a day for galleries, museums and individuals all over the world to invite others to share the art that is precious to them. Spend time contemplating and appreciating skills, materials and techniques. Take time to slow down, this is the perfect opportunity.
This year is different, we can’t meet up and share the art in the same physical place, or enjoy a chat with coffee and cake afterwards. But we can share in different ways. Maybe send an image of your favourite piece, or one you would love to see again and share it via a phone message, have a conversation and share time thinking about that piece. You could of course have a chat with coffee, or the drink of choice, and cake as well!
This does not have to be looking at old pieces, it can be any art of your choice. Make sure you spend at least 5 minutes to appreciate the work, think about how long it might have taken to make, who made it, where the ideas may have come from.
You could follow up time spent looking with researching your chosen artist, maybe there is something about the person and the way they live that would encourage you to develop a different life style. We have the unusual experience of having time to think!
I still haven’t decided what my Slow Art choice will be, I seem to take longer to make decisions, but that’s ok too!
Share what you looked at, I would love to see your choices.
