Things to do when you're broke: ART

When you're friends are at work, you're at home. Why not make them jealous?

When was the last time you visited the Museum?
Be sure to check your museum of choice's website- many have evenings of jazz and art for free or at a reduced price. Some museums are FREE on certain days.

A. Hate museums? (how could  you possibly??) Hit the Museum gift shop only and buy whichever postcard strikes your fancy first (don't worry it will probably only be $2). Take it home and post it in a place where you will see it every day. Find an old frame. Use it as a home for your new piece of art.

B. Used to breezing through museums? Spend some time really looking at the brushstrokes on at least one of the paintings, or pottery lines, or construction of the 3-dimensional pieces.

C. Used to spending hours? What would u happen if you spent less time? Look at a piece and absorb your first impression then move on briskly to the next. How much of the museum where you able to view?

D. Pick your favorite painting > now make up a story to go with the art. Did you take my advice and actually start writing your book?? Find a painting to use on the cover of your future bestseller!

E. Galleries. Check your area for galleries. Then make a day of popping in to 2 or 3.
