National Inspire Your Heart With Art Day

Always observed on January 31st, Inspire Your Heart With Art Day is a day to ponder how art affects your heart. Art is valued and appreciated for all sorts of reasons.

Of the broad spectrum of art created in the world, the pieces that move us to tears or cause us to burst out into joyous laughter remain with us for a lifetime. Whether we are touched by music or see into an artist soul through their work, art has the power to change us, to inspire our hearts.

Inspire Your Heart with Art Day encourages us to explore the many genres of art and let it inspire us. (NationalDayCalendar.com)

No doubt, the fiber arts sit at the convergence of art and craft and creativity. From the simple scarf of a beginner to the amazing sculptures of artists like Ruth Marshall, we can see the creative mind at work. My favorite fiber artist is Ágnes Herczeg.  Her abilities are truly a gift from God. The beauty she creates makes me smile.

So, today, use National Inspire Your Heart With Art Day to open your mind to new, creative ways to use your craft. Push your limits, try a new technique or….use that special skein of yarn you’ve been saving for something amazing. Your heart will be better for it. #InspireYourHeartWithArtDay
