I’ve always been a fan of art and crafts and started doodling the minute I could hold a pencil in my hand. Fast forward to now, my favorite creative tools are a mouse and a camera but I still have such a fascination with handmade art so you can believe I was super excited to check out our newest pop-up store, The Art Corner by Artistic Talent Group!
I was able to get a tour on opening day last week and it did not disappoint. Only a few short steps away from The Art of Disney near Goofy’s Candy Co. at Disney Springs Marketplace, this location is a can’t-miss destination for any creative at heart.
Be sure to check out the unique hands-on Artistic Marbling activity where you’ll learn the ancient art form of Suminigashi and work side by side with a professional artisan to create custom-made silk items. This unique experience debuted at the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Arts and continues to be a guest favorite. The best part? There’s no way to mess it up! Each scarf design comes out beautifully.
Any other coffee lovers out there? Show your love for your favorite morning java with a unique “Coffee & Canvas” piece! Florida artist, Steven Mikel, adds a touch of whimsy to the space with his unique coffee-inspired paintings designed to reveal beauty tucked away in the details of the world. (Can you believe some of these pieces require 60-150 brewed cups of coffee?!)
Caricatures continue to be a guest favorite souvenir at Walt Disney World Resort and The Art Corner by Artistic Talent Group offers a new and innovative digital sketch version. Love the classic watercolor style? Don’t worry, they have those too! You’ll also find another souvenir favorite, Name Works, the popular provider of personalized artwork, whipping up hand-drawn names personalized with your choice of illustrations.
I can’t wait to see what you create at The Art Corner by Artistic Talent Group! Follow them on Facebook and Instagram @theartcornerbyatg and don’t forget to tag your photos with #DisneySprings on Instagram or Twitter.
