Supplying the creative urge

Golden Eagle Valentine's Day display
February has begun and even if Staten Island Chuck and Punxsutawney Phil say spring will be here in no time, Malvern Mel says that we still have some cold weather to deal with. If winter is making you as stir crazy as it is me, you may want to tap your creative side while indoors. Culinary creativity is fine, but arts and crafts are calorie free! Golden Eagle Art has everything you need to explore your creative side. Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Perhaps something home made?
The Golden Eagle Art store in East Hampton has an extensive selection of supplies for most artistic endeavors. There are various brands of oil, watercolor and acrylic paints. Canvas, paper and journals. The store was originally established in 1954 and has a rich history of clientele. Everyone from Jackson Pollock and William de Kooning to yours truly has replenished their supplies and discovered new inspirations within. I love browsing through the assortment of creative wares.

Golden Eagle also holds classes for  every age and level of learning. Their website describes special art themed birthday parties for kids. Some might be fun for adults too.

Last week, a friend was musing that she wanted to get a big canvas and do a painting of the sea. Sonya has never painted before. My suggestion, "Go to Golden Eagle!" I am sure that Tracy would help her get started.
