Arteria Launches its 6th Annual “MUMS THAT MAKE & DADS THAT DO” Campaign…..and highlights the importance of creative practices #ARTMATTERS #CREATIVITYCOUNTS
Award winning Arteria with Gallery 23 launch their 6th Annual MUMS THAT MAKE & DADS THAT DO campaign. The event is an opportunity for artistic parents to apply to showcase their creative skills. The 5 Mums and 5 Dads shortlisted will not only have their work displayed at the Brock Street store, but the winning mum and winning dad will also be awarded a Bath House “pamper hamper” and will book themselves a place in a future gallery exhibition.
We believe the importance of creation and imagination cannot be overlooked or undervalued. As we see art courses and creative practices fall from curriculums, now more than ever it is vital that we maintain the vibrancy, inspiration and sheer joy born out of creativity.
Creative thought and practice encourages expression and builds confidence. It is contagious and can generate reciprocal delight. It can also inspire a future generation to keep creating art!
We do think that the world would indeed be flat without the efforts and impact of creative pioneers. How much of our leisure time is spent being challenged, enlightened and entertained by the results of art and creativity. Simply put, it enhances quality of life. #ARTMATTERS #CREATIVITYCOUNTS
Whether you think you are creative or not, as a parent you will help your children “colour in” you will read, sing and dance with your wee ones. You are more creative than you think……so help us spread the word for this event that supports and offers opportunities to men and women who juggle family life with being artists and makers.
Last year’s winners John Simon and Fay Shoesmith, will help with the selection process of the overall winners for the 2017 campaign.
We would like to take this opportunity to give a huge acknowledgement of thanks to our loyal and local sponsors BATH HOUSE who have been so generous in their support of the event and supplying stunning pamper hampers for our winners since the campaign first launched.
