Event Brings Free Art Education
In March, Tombow USA and Art Supply Warehouse collaborated to bring free art education and demos to the general public in California at the third annual Arty Gras Event.
Tombow's Alana Yarbrough taught live demonstrations, and free interactive handlettering and watercolor demonstrations to the many attendees that visited their booth. Alana creates beautiful hand lettered notes of encouragement & hope in her free time, and was happy to show that anyone with enough practice and patience can create beautiful hand-lettering, and experience the joy of creating beautiful hand-lettered works of art should be shared with all.

This year at Creativation by Namta 2023 in Columbus, OH , Namta created an alliance with a local organization called Directions for Youth and Families (DFYF). Directions improves lives of individuals, families, and communities through counseling, education and support. What better way to do this than through the creative channel. Because of the generosity of several of Namta members, during Creativation by Namta in Columbus, OH a mural which expressed Directions mission was created by participants from the program. This mural will be displayed in Directions new facility. This was just the first endeavor for Namta to leave its' mark on the community where we came together to celebrate creativity. The collaborative project between Directions and Namta was the first of an on-going initiative for Namta to develop community partnerships in all future Creativation by Namta host cities.
Back in February Namta was honored to be a part of the Mid-Carolina Region Scholastic Art Awards. These young artists received this honor for their talent in the creative industry. Namta applauded these Gold Key winners and through our sponsorship their works were featured on billboards throughout the Charlotte area. See the winners !
