Aesthetic appreciation adds to the value of life. Philosophers like Immanuel Kant have discussed that appreciation of art, visual, musical, or literary, improves the quality of life. This can be done in various contexts, like visiting an art gallery, attending a concert, or even hanging up art in your space. Here are the top three ways to improve your life through aesthetic appreciation this weekend without breaking the bank.
1. Attend an exhibition
Celebrate Felabration and history with us this weekend! At Bature Brewery at 256 Etim Inyang Crescent, Victoria Island, this Saturday, 15th of October, and Sunday, 16th of October, from 12noon.
Expect live music, good beer, and great art, and don’t forget to bring a friend.
2. Buy artwork
Artdey sells pieces under $300! Art in one’s space boosts happiness and fills your space with pieces that speak to your identity. It also helps in uplifting your mood and reducing stress levels. Gift your friends so you can all be art collectors now.
3. Make a sip and paint at home with your friends
It is always fun to do something creative with friends. One could opt out of spendings like N10,000 on a sip and paint and visit an art market to get some supplies and paint something you’ve always wanted to. This is an easy way to relieve stress and still appreciate the good things in life without spending much money.
