Hand Touched Crafts Mark 2015 International Women's Day By Commemorating Historical Female Artists
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 09, 2015 ) New York, New York -- Staff at art supply company Hand Touched Crafts have been busy putting together a Pinterest board with images of artwork painted by historical women artists. The board is designed to not only commemorate the achievements of women artists but to also be a source of inspiration for modern artists to study.
The company is also marking the day with a 50% discount off the Student Artist Brush Set, Student Artist Brush Set Introduction which is available for sale on Amazon.com. The brush set is designed to give student artists a broad selection of artist paintbrushes to help them learn various brush strokes and art styles. The set is comprised of 12 golden synthetic short handled paintbrushes and a water resistant artist carry roll.
Ms Tammy Hill from Hand Touched Crafts spoke about Hand Touched Crafts decision to mark the event. "We decided that International Women's Day was a good occasion to remember not only the women artists from history who were able to break through into the exclusive male domain of professional fine art, but to also remind ourselves of how fortunate we are today to be able to earn a living from art if we choose to. Although equality for many women, particularly in many parts of the world is still an impossible dream, we believe it is important to show gratitude for what women have already accomplished.
We decided to create the new Pinterest board to inspire students of art with images created by female artists from history, not only as a reference to different styles and techniques, but also as a source of inspiration as to what can be achieved when you dare to challenge or break through the limitations that surround you. Many women today still struggle with limitation be it cultural, religious, domestic or physical and the practice of art as a profession or for leisure can help cope with or even overcome some of those limitations.We wanted to help give people the chance to learn to paint by reducing our popular Student Artist Brush Set to mark the occasion."
The Student Artist Brush Set is available for sale from the Hand Touched Crafts website or Amazon.com. The set is handmade in the USA from quality components sourced globally, and retails for $59.95. It will be on sale for $29.95 on International Women's Day March 8th 2015.
