Artists for A Better World International member, Becky Mate, is the founder of an international “Holiday For The Arts” as well as for artists themselves of all disciplines. The holiday is aptly called Art Day.
This holiday falls annually on the second Friday in August.
Since 1998, Mate has tirelessly inspired and encouraged others to spread the word about this holiday to artists and art enthusiasts around the globe
The result has been a growing number Art Day celebrations with each passing year.
(See below for information about creating your own Art Day party).
Art Day is the perfect time to celebrate creativity and bring joy to others:
- Draw a picture
- Compose a song
- Write a poem or story
- Have a party!
Additionally, give a card, photo, music CD, poem, story or anything creative to someone else.
AFABW members have created Art Day Greeting Cards that emphasize the theme, “Celebrate Creativity.” (Visit the AFABW online Store to view them.)
In short, Art Day is about bringing a smile to others and forwarding the concept of creating a better world though aesthetics.
Although Art Day was formulated around a particular date to celebrate creativity, ideally, one would forward creativity all year round. Art Day helps to call attention to its importance.
