Good morning CLE and happy Tuesday to ya!
Many of you might know this about me but I am a total art geek. Thanks to my Mom, I spent my childhood growing up with a craft box under my bed. My Saturday mornings were spent in painting classes with other “free spirit”kids and by the time I reached college I was attending gallery openings in my down time, hanging out in the painting lofts of fellow art school students and taking extra credits in anything from silk screen to stained glass. As a professional graphic designer I feel lucky each day that I get to create visual inspiration for a living.
Can I even tell you how excited I was when I was shopping at Pat Catans, Berea Road store the other day when I discovered row after row of gorgeous fine art supplies? Enter the friendly Pat Catan’s employee who immediatley informed me they were integrating the “store-within-the-store” idea by moving the Prizm Art Supplies Store into this “Catan’s” location.
Each aisle is filled from floor to ceiling with high-end paints, pastels, canvases, stunning papers everything you might need for airbrush artwork, to gold leafing to really great how-to books not to mention the rows of great pens, colored pencils and charcoals! It really is a feast for any artist.
Do you HEART art supplies? Do you bust out your watercolors at the beach? Perhaps have your own “craft box” under your bed? How about digging down deep to find your inner Rothko and whipping up a modern color block painting for your home? THIS GIVEAWAY IS CALLING YOUR NAME!
Pat Catan’s and Prizm Art Supplies has given me not one, but TWO $50 gift certificates to shop the new art supplies at Pat Catan’s/Prizm for all of your summer creations. To enter to win, tweet me @iheartclev and let me know what project you would use your @Prizm_Stores gift card towards. Make sure to use our special #CLEartsupplies tag. (For example; “@iheartclev with my #CLEartsupplies cash from @Prizm_Stores I want to buy paints for a summer project”) The more you enter, the better chance you have to score…one entry per tweet! Artist winners will be announced Monday, May 13th. Good luck everybody!
