The Galveston Arts Center is an amazing resource for all art lovers in the local area, especially if you’re interested in contemporary art. There are many enjoyable ways to engage with the Center, even while staying home in our Galveston apartments.
ArtWalk is a beautiful tradition organized by the Galveston Arts Center that began in 1986. The city walk generally takes place every six weeks as a celebration of the vibrant local arts community. Participants of ArtWalk go on self-guided tours of art venues in downtown Galveston. The city’s rich arts scene includes galleries, studios, and even coffee shops. The April ArtWalk was virtual, which means you can watch it from home and enjoy a close-up look of incredible artwork exhibited around the city. There are also tentative plans for having an upcoming ArtWalk in person on July 11th.
Work On a Project At Home
Educational arts programming is a top priority of the Galveston Arts Center. They’ve extended their educational program to include projects that anyone can do at home. Cassie Phan, a local artist, designed Clearly Cloudy: Sky Swatches. Phan’s art lesson includes a printable activity guide for making miniature paintings or drawings of the sky over several days. Sky Swatches uses simple materials and easy techniques as a way of inspiring creativity and reflection.
