“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
― Pablo Picasso
This holiday season consider taking your adopt a family contributions one step further. Instead of fulfilling just the wish list by individual, add an element of art to your delivery. Imagine how excited a family might be to receive a fine art gift to admire as a family. Think about how inspired you become when you receive or purchase a piece of art for your home. We should pass that excitement on. Especially to those who may never have the means to afford art.
Art strikes an emotion in all of us, so a surprise delivery of good design is perhaps the greatest gift of all. Be clever in your delivery. There are so many various ways to share art, below are three we think make the biggest impact.

Create a craft for the family with your own two hands. Include a story
With so many DIY tutorials online, your family or group of friends would have no problem finding a creative gift. Perhaps, your family already has a tradition to create an art project together over the holidays. Make a duplicate and then include a story about this tradition. Sharing a part of your life with others is the most genuine gift of all.
