– creating and enjoying arts that help goodness to spread

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso

Virtuous Arts is based on J.M. Davies’ philosophy of creative realism. Creative realism means that we acknowledge our current reality as truthfully as it is but not accepting it as an unchangeable reality. Instead, according to creative realism we use the current reality as a clay to mold our lives into a desirable future.

At Virtuous Arts we believe that all of our vices result from our desire to be happy and loved. We resort to vices because they help us to achieve temporary happiness or something similar to feeling loved. At Virtuous Arts we help people to get rid of the ignorance that leads to vices. We believe that striving for virtues and making arts with a desire to encourage people to become more virtuous is important even if – and when – we never achieve a completely virtuous existence in our lifetime. Reality, people accepting their vices and the responsibility to develop virtues, is much more beautiful than pretending that everything is good as it is. Personal integrity is the surest way of reaching real happiness in this world.

Our wish is that you’ll join our community of virtuous artists – whether you are a professional artist or someone who wishes to live a more creative and joyful life.
