Glass Art Resolutions for the New Year

Everything Else
As 2017 fast approaches, you’re probably thinking of what resolutions you’re going to make (and hopefully stick to) in the New Year. Perhaps it’s getting more exercise or eating more healthfully, the two most common resolutions people make every year. Those are great resolutions to make, but it’s also good to think outside the box when making your resolutions. Here are some suggestions for glass art resolutions to make.   1. Organize your creative space By taking a little time to organize and arrange your art glass tools and supplies, you’ll be saving yourself time in the long run. That means you’ll have more time to focus on what really matters: being creative. Plus, when you keep things organized, you’ll know what supplies you need to stock up on.

Try something new So you’re amazing when it comes to fusing glass, but why not give another type of glass art a try? You can attempt a mosaic or even try a new technique in fusing that you’ve never tried before. At Delphi, there are

Team Spirit: The Ultimate Back-to-School Art Wars

Everything Else
It’s official. Everywhere across the country, millions of young adults have flown the nest with bags packed, ready to begin a new adventure at college. It’s a great time for them to learn more about their studies, the world and themselves.   College is also a place to make friends and develop a lifelong loyalty to a mascot that they will likely pay homage to in many ways. Some of those ways might not be so creative, like shouting out the window to a neighboring car with stickers from the same school. Or worse, shouting at someone from a rival university.   Team spirit ignites such a passion in all of us who have attended school. Even many years later, you probably still cheer for your team. Passion is what fuels creativity. One of the best ways to express creativity is to use art as your outlet.
