Hello Friends, and welcome back to my blog, I am thrilled that we are connecting and thank you for all the great feedback on my recent blog about "Grumbacher Academy Acrylic Review", l appreciate that you can relate to this brand of acrylics, and so many other art products that l have been reviewing. Also a huge thank you to Jen at Grumbacher for sharing my blog on their Facebook Fan page. Woohoo!
If you personally know me, or have read any of my previous blogs then you will quickly realize just how passionate l am about art and art materials. In my April 6th, 2017 blog, l talk about “Tips on How to be a Successful Artist”, the content is helpful to better understand what l am trying to convey in this blog. If you have a chance, check it out too, the link is below. Not only is it important to make connections with people of the same interests and goals, but finding important and influential resources to help you along the way will make a difference and help validate your hard work. I also think it is important to discover and experiment with new mediums, not only will you expand your skill and profession but add new interests to broaden your talents. Chartpak has been one of my essential resources for so many reasons, they have already made a difference in my art world and here’s how?
Since 1949 Chartpak Inc has been a diversified manufacturer, who not only produces innovative products for graphics but they are also diversified in branding and offer fine art materials, writing materials, craft, hobby and office products. Chartpak has become a globally recognized leader in creative products, with 14 brands that include 60 product lines and many are made in the USA or Europe. Chartpak's distribution division services customers in wholesale, independent retail, internet and catalog retail, and big box chains. One of the biggest box chain stores that stock their products is Michaels Arts and Crafts where l teach the Grumbacher fine art acrylic classes in Kingston, Ontario.
Many of the brands that Chartpak provides are respected by professionals and hobbyists. Chartpak is not only a company who pride themselves on providing many well-known and great quality brands such as Grumbacher, Koh-l-Noor, Schminke, Higgins, AD Markers, Molotow, just to name a few, but they are also a company who supports and works with local and national art programs, events, institutions and artists to help foster community arts and encourage individual artistic expression. What a great company right? So not only do they provide great products with artists in mind, but they continue to help artists strive, and aid creative expression, a special thank you to Sophie and Lana. I personally love many of the products they offer, especially the fine art materials. Click on the link below to look through Chartpak's website and take a look at the brands and the exceptional fine art materials and grand writing products they offer. You may be surprised just how many products you already utilize that are listed on their brand portfolio. Chartpak has opened the doors to a huge audience of people including me, they have listened, and provide vital products at affordable prices.
Recently l was contacted by Chartpak's “Director of Marketing and Creative Services” and l was given an incredible opportunity to review and blog about some of their products. You can just imagine how enthusiastic l was and still am about this amazing opportunity. I always welcome the possibility to create with new mediums and art supplies, especially products that are known for their quality and performance. I am familiar with many of Chartpak's products and brands, as l tend to check out their merchandise offered at Michaels at least twice a week, usually with a huge smile on my face, deciding on the next medium to experiment with. One of the brands and products that l immensely favor is the Grumbacher Academy Acrylics. If you haven’t had the chance to read my viewpoint on them, then click the link below and check it out.
Thank you Chartpak for the art haul
In the next few weeks l will be creating, reviewing and blogging about the art haul that Chartpak has sent me. I can’t wait to discover what l can create with the following items, Grumbacher Goldenedge watercolour brushes, Grumbacher Finest Professional watercolours, AD spectra markers, Koh-I-Noor Tri -Tone pencils, Grumbacher’s watercolour, acrylic and mixed media paper, and so much more. It’s an opportunity that l hope you will share and follow along with me. Although Chartpak has been so generous and supportive, l am not being sponsored and l will express honest reviews. My aspiration is to inspire you, not only to be creative but to try new mediums and products and step out of your comfort zone. What are your favorite Chartpak products and brands?
Hope to connect with you soon. Here are the links below to my social media platforms, so make sure to follow me on my artful adventure. Thanks for all your support.
l wish you all a beautiful day,
I am hoping that l can be inspirational and informative. I always feel that paying it forward is a great way to live life. As a self taught artist l will try and share with you what l have learned.
