Inspire Your Heart with Art Day: Celebrating art is good for your heart

When it comes to holidays, Jan. 31 has a little something for everyone! Not only is it Scotch Tape Day, Backward Day, National Hot Chocolate Day, Brandy Alexander Day and Eat Brussels Sprouts Day, it is also Inspire Your Heart with Art Day! Hooray!

While the origins of this annual "holiday" are unknown, Inspire Your Heart with Art Day celebrates art of all shapes, sizes and varieties. Whether it's a trip to a local museum, watching or acting in a play at the local theater or tapping your toes to a rockin' concert, today celebrates creativity with an artistic flair as well as the positive effect it has on our lives. Art inspires us to get creative and appreciate all different forms of art.

How to Celebrate

  • Sign up for pottery classes and create that special, one-of-a-kind piece of pottery.

  • Visit a local art gallery and ask yourself how each piece makes you feel?

  • What gal doesn't love a little bling every now-and-then? Why not make your own jewelry in honor of the holiday?

  • Try your hand at the beautiful art of calligraphy.

  • Why not try out that new painting or drawing technique?

  • Get ready to get your groove on! Grab your significant other and learn some new dance moves.

  • Finally finish writing or reading that novel!

  • The kids will have a ball creating this Paper Roll Penguin craft. You'll need a toilet paper tube, colored construction paper, glue, tape and wiggle eyes.

  • In honor of the occasion, encourage the kids to get down-and-dirty and try a little finger-painting on for size.

  • And with Valentine's Day right around the corner, why not create this adorable Heart Wreath just perfect for the occasion?

  • Gather up the family and watch your favorite film of all time!

Whether you admire a brilliant masterpiece, listen to a wonderful concerto or learn a new move on the dance floor, just get those creative juices flowing and enjoy!
