I joined the Art Day event on Bloggers Unite, so I jumped to artistsforabetterworld.org to learn more about the initiative.
I found out that this international holiday for artists of all disciplines, called Art Day, falls annually on the second Friday in August.
It has been founded by Becky Mate, Artists for A Better World International member, in 1998. So, celebrate creativity: draw a picture, compose a song, write a poem or story, paint, have a party! And, at some point in the party, remind everyone that the Art Day holiday is not a single party, but a worldwide grassroots movement to appreciate artists and patrons, and to bring funding into the arts.
