Hand-crafting is the hot topic of the hour…

Perhaps, it’s that unique holiday tradition we partake in as a family – that is indeed the “Most Wonderful” thing about this time of year. So is the art of hand-painting ceramic Christmas trees. It’s been a long-held tradition that’s continued from the time of our grandparents unto this day. How is it that a tradition dating back decades has not only continued up until now but has, in fact, experienced a rebound in renewed interest among younger generations?  “The answer is simple – it’s the hands-on, do-it-yourself craftsmanship that’s involved in the process painting pottery with family and friends, and then having it fired in a kiln, that family members find to be rewarding and they remember the most.” says the staff at the Creative Arts Studio

A Canvas Painting Story

All About Canvas Painting

 

Galleries around the world tell their stories – the timeless tales of talented artists, who paint their visual worlds on pages of canvas for all to read.  At the stroke of a brush, colors become words that portray the plot in picturesque, prose. Tones, like their plot counterparts – twist and turn the canvas storyline into a superfluity of shades, depicting themes and scenes that only the painter’s brush could design. Each scene, like a panoramic performance, is played out on the canvas – where perspectives are the players, depth depicts dialogue, and texture tells the artist’s, visual tale.

This world is but a canvas to our imagination. Henry David Thoreau

Canvas Painting

 

Like a portal peering into the painter’s creative-consciousness, the canvas proudly displays the human experience as characterized by a broad palette of emotional color tones that bring the story to life. The canvas is then the creator’s showcase of master-storytelling, where each stroke sketches a thousand words, and each brush builds up to a climactic close. Upon whence the story concludes, the completed work is a telling of how a blank sheet can become a beautiful canvas of possibility, not through printed words, but through painted worlds…

Canvas Painting

I dream of painting and then I paint my dream. Vincent van Gogh

The majestic worlds created by the canvas masters themselves are beyond imaginable, yet fully believable. Admirers can nearly sense the sting of the frigid canvas’ cold front blowing across the snowbound mountain village scene. Onlookers can almost taste and smell the Thanksgiving turkey being served up on the canvas dining table scene, complete with all the fixings of food, friends, and family fun. Viewers can nearly hear the tonal dynamics of each metal string as they vibrate their signature vibrational frequencies across the canvas wooden soundboard.

Such Mastercrafters of canvas worlds, like the visionary Vincent van Gogh, opened up our eyes to The Starry Night swirling about and above us in all its unrivaled resplendence. We have walked along The Avenue with Oscar Claude Monet, creator of finely crafted canvas realms that have yet to be completely chartered. Then we are swept up by the sounds of Pablo Picasso’s Post-Impressionist universe, where the timeless tunes from The Old Guitarist are still being aired across the canvas‘ color washed wavebands.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Pablo Picasso

Their canvas like our canvas is their world.  And like they, we pour ourselves into the act and art of creating. It’s as if to create is encoded into our intelligently, intertwined, genetic sequencing. It is this innate need to create, that showcases the zenith of the human emotional experience. This canvas of our own crafting and workmanship is a life lived with creative- ntention.

 

Just as the master crafters of those still uncharted, canvas worlds gave us a glimpse into their creative consciousness.  We should peer into one of our most innate and core higher callings to create with intention.  Like the masterpieces of old, may your life’s canvas be colored with the broadest pallete of creative intention. Likewise, may you peer through the portal of your own creative consciousness to see the yet uncharted worlds that await your discovery.

 

Just as there’s a need to create, compelling us forward, there also exists a higher calling, captivating us onward.  It’s a clarion call that still echoes true today.  It’s to create with intent and showcase the best of ourselves to an onlooking world, exhibiting our true higher colors on this canvas display called life…

The inner artist within us all

There’s something innate within each of us – a desire to create and express that compels us towards the arts. While art comes in many forms and can be expressed in an equal number of creative ways; it is the individual’s personal approach that makes artistic expression such a powerful part of the human experience. One such form of artistic expression is pallet board painting. It’s the unfinished, rustic appearance of the wood’s surface that adds layers of beautiful uniqueness to the project that makes it such a popular form of art. The Creative Arts Studio in the artsy city of Royal Oak, Michigan presents pallet board painting- which is perfect for bringing out your inner artist!

 

An inspirational, interactive experience

As a fun alternative to traditional painting surfaces such as canvas or pottery, pallet board painting is an entirely unique painting surface, requiring different techniques to bring out the distinctiveness of each color and detail. Taught by skilled artisans at our Royal Oak, Michigan studio, the Creative Arts Studio makes pallet board painting an interactive experience for artists of all ages to enjoy!   

 

There’s something worth discovering

Artistry, in all its various forms, is growing in popularity, both as a hobby and as a profession. As a healthy alternative to online activity, it is the dynamic of physically working with one’s own hands that help give art its permanence and allure.  At the Creative Arts Studio, a local Royal Oak, Michigan art studio, you’ll rediscover the satisfaction of working with your hands and creating something from nothing.  From forming a new, passion-turned-hobby to embarking upon a new, career path, there’s something for everyone in the arts that are worth discovering.

 

Breathing new life into the old

One of the true wonders of art is discovering new and creative ways for it to be expressed. The quest to discover new materials, surfaces, colors, and methods continue to push the parameters of artistic expression to even greater, heights and depths. Pallet board painting is a form of artistic expression that takes the rough-hewn surface of a standard wood pallet and converts it into the ultimate, painting surface. These pallets are often worn and weathered, and in some cases, were no longer being used. Here at the Creative Arts Studio of Royal Oak, Michigan– the pallets are reclaimed and given a useful, new purpose – to showcase beautiful artwork!

 

From rough-hewn to the showroom

Pallet board art is a welcome addition to any gallery, showroom, office, or home. It brings a down-home feel that adds character and personality to the decor of a place that anyone can appreciate. Plus, it’s different than the typical, art-piece or painting surface. WIth their rough-hewn appearance, pallet boards add texture and dimension to your painting project, resulting in beautifully unique creations. When it comes to creating, the Creative Arts Studio in vibrant, Royal Oak, Michigan is the go-to place for all things creative, and pallet board painting is one of many ways for you to be able to express your artistic side.
