Now that that the holidays are over and the season of making good on resolutions has begun, here are a few ways to bring more art into your life in the new year:

  • Visit a museum or gallery – Museums and galleries are perfect spots for artistic inspiration and a low cost or even free way to spend an afternoon or weekend.

  • Take a class or workshop – Most communities offer a wide variety of classes and workshops. If you’ve wanted to try your hand at creating some of your own art or crafts, this is the perfect way to start.

  • Rent a movie about an artist’s life – There are many documentaries and biopics about artists out there.  Spend an evening and get to know your favorite. Pina by Wim Wenders is a nice place to start.
