Art Feeds Day
Happy Art Feeds Day everyone! I was so excited when my friend Jordan reached out to me about writing a blog post for this special day, (AND I was able to decorate my own shirt for the occasion!) Art Feeds is providing free therapeutic art and creative education programs for children through their schools & organizations. You can read more about their amazing cause and how you can help, here.
I feel blessed in a lot of ways, but artistic ability hasn't always been one of them. BUT I still wanted to do my best and create a fun tee for the cause! I had taken up a few ideas in my head, but went to trusty Pinterest to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with my shirt. I found this awesome DIY on how to 'ice dye', and I wasted no time heading to my local Michael's to get the supplies. (Everything pictured above except for the tee was found at Michael's).
Found my soda ash & fabric dye powder, and was off to the races! (I followed the DIY instructions pretty closely, but didn't buy the exact same dye as her and felt like it still turned out okay!)
The shirt started out plain white, with the saying, "Art Feeds" left with a blank space for you to write what you feel like art feeds for you. Passion was the first word that came to mind for me. My "art" is photography, and there is nothing that fuels me more than my passion for that. I wear this shirt with pride today, and I'm so thankful share organizations like this one with all of you! Happy #ArtFeedsDay!
