In Europe, many of us start the count-down to Christmas today – commonly known as “Advent Calendar”. Traditionally, you would have a box with 24 numbered windows or doors and you would open one each day to get some sort of gift, like a beautiful image or poem, a toy or chocolate. With the Wacom version, each door #ComesWith a surprise.
Check out our Instagram account or this blog each day to find out what surprise waits for you. This might be tutorials like, inspirational artists, some useful guides as well as some hot 24-hour-flash-deals to keep you warm and excited. Or an invitation to a global challenge that just started. What is that challenge?
Today’s tidbit: Wacom’s #GiftOfCreativity challenge
At Wacom, we truly believe that art can change the world. And in a world hungry for so much change, we’ve challenged ourselves to do what we can to spread the gift of creativity. Will you join us? This holiday season, we’re challenging our community to give the #GiftOfCreativity. In return, we will create the ultimate artist gift sets with the help of some of our friends and send them to five generous creatives throughout December. Each one of these special gift sets is filled with art prints, toys, stickers, books, and other goodies from our generous friends. They also include art supplies and software from our partners, and of course Wacom gear and swag!
