"Educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities and that it can be used effectively to teach and understand other key subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science. Therapists tell us that art is valuable because it allows children to process their world, to deal with sometimes scary emotions in a safe way, and because it gives them critical sensory input. Artists tell us that art is important for its own sake—as a source of beauty and expression, as well as simply for the process of creating. Kids tell us that art is fun, an activity they enjoy. Parents tell us that art is vital to their families because it keeps everyone engaged and happy and helps with the sometimes difficult transitions of the day." (from the Artful parent if you want to read more why art is beneficial for kids)

Add a little spring in your shoe with Life of Colour Pens. Walk your way through Spring with funky and colourful shoes designed by...yourself! 

This week we had a competition on our new Facebook group. Paint on anything in your home...just not a rock, using the theme Spring as an inspiration. 

The winner has just been announced by our resident artist, Laura. Read her message below.

This weekend we are celebrating our classics and glitters. Here are some fun ways to use our metallic and glitter paint pens for your art projects.

Aussie Rocks Final...the countdown has begun!
With Life of Colour Paint Pens you can draw on any surface. I mean any! That means socks and shoes, paper and book covers, glass and ceramic, surfboards and skateboards, rocks and tables, wood and metal. The possibilities are endless!
These days rock painting has become a way of expressing yourself on a small and natural canvas that is fun and versatile. It is an activity that adults and kids enjoy and the beauty of it is that it usually takes you outdoors to search for your rocks. The other great qualities of rock painting is the ease of passing on your artworks as small gifts and tokens of love, whether to a stranger or to a loved one. The small surface is less intimidating than a canvas and you can easily finish a small rock work-of-art in a short sitting and have something you can be proud of.

Art is a great healer.

Whether you are after mindfulness, focus or relaxation, or a way to distract you from pain or problems, it is an effective way to break the cycle of everyday monotony, busy-ness or illness. 

Tyler from our community has kindly shared with us her story of how she got into art, why she was attracted to the easy art tools like Watercolour Pens, and how it helps her manager the pain from her autoimmune disease.

Expressing your feelings and emotions through any hobby is very healthy for you, having the opportunity to make something beautiful out of any crisis will help you navigate it. 
In a world that’s becoming more and more mobile, one can easily define the perfect creative space wherever they so please. The definition of a creative space is no longer defined by the walls of a studio, but is rather a reflection of the very essence of that which inspires you.
While there’s a whole world out there to discover and inspire us, an abundance of stimulation can sometimes make it difficult to find the perfect starting point. We’ve turned to our Life of Colour Community to find out not only where they get their inspiration but also what makes them tick!
We want to tell you the joys of zen art. Through meditative drawing, painting and colouring you can create your own sanctuary and they will help you relieve stress. Recharge your energy through art and start making wonderful mandalas or using colouring-in as an aid to recovery.
The purpose of Mandalas in art and art therapy is to help achieve a sense of focus, flow and harmony. I personally enjoy colouring in Mandalas, just to take a step away from my usual chores of life and work, and to focus on something soothing and relaxing. You can get lost in the flow of the patterns and colours and it certainly helps with mindfulness and wellness.
This is me at my wedding. This is my wedding bouquet. Most people I know had pink or white flowers, but I wanted mine to be as colourful as possible. Why? Because I love colour. It is the essence of life. 
The Art of Hand Lettering or Calligraphy is an ancient art form, and one that has taken the modern art world by storm, because of its beautiful depth and connection between art and words. The style of letters become an art form that can evoke deep emotions and nostalgia - happiness, joy and love.
I started lettering in January 2018 but I had looked for a creative outlet pretty much my entire life. I tried anything I could think of, scrapbooking, I learnt to knit, jewellery making, you name it but nothing stuck and then I found a lettering account on Instagram which led me to find more and that was it, I fell in love with lettering and a year later I’m still if not more in love with it than the day I started.
