A World of Art

April 15 is World Art Day, an international celebration of the arts that promotes awareness of creative activity. The day also falls on Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday, an appropriate day to reinforce the links between artistic creations and society, encourage greater awareness of the diversity of artistic expressions and highlight the contribution of artists to sustainable development. The day also spotlights arts education in schools as a pathway to inclusive and equitable education.
Creative Clay will recognize World Art Day in April with A World of Art, its new virtual exhibit that celebrates creativity and the power of art. Creative Clay’s member artists celebrate the power of art when they create in the Community Arts Program, exhibit their art virtually and in the Good Folk Gallery, and when they sell their works. A World of Art invites online gallery visitors to learn the stories of our artists, discover their rich, diverse work, and see how the viewing of art can spark imagination.
UNESCO, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, supports World Art Day by promoting world peace and security through international cooperation in education, arts, sciences, and culture. Creative Clay recognizes that art nurtures creativity, innovation and cultural diversity for all peoples across the globe and plays an important role in sharing knowledge and encouraging curiosity and dialogue.
