In your opinion, what defines a memorable event? Is it the fact many people showed up? Alternatively, that the guests created a lot of buzz on social media about your company thanks to the event? Or is it because the guests were amazed by the artist you booked for the event?
Whatever the case, we know it is hard to have a memorable event without a talented artist, which is why we will talk about Heidi Schwartz in this article.
Let’s find out more about her.
Giving Back to People Through Art and Creativity
Ever since she was a little girl, Heidi liked to draw and playing with colors. As she grew older, she started becoming more creative and coming up with more ideas on how she can express herself.
She claims this is how she found herself.
Drawings and paintings represented a way of gathering her thoughts and how she could make sense of her emotions.
Even though she started drawing and painting at an early age, at 19 she pursued music as a career. She took classes at Belmont University’s commercial music program, yet she never stopped painting.
She put words into her painting and then her paintings were transformed into songs. It is a pretty unusual way to make music, but a technique which worked for Heidi Schwartz nevertheless.
In essence, she was creating song paintings. She even released an album, and each song had a painting connected to it.
So then, live painting happened.
How Heidi Schwartz Makes Events Memorable
When she was working at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, she was discussing with an entertainment manager about a performance.
The manager was aware of her skills because he had already heard her music and saw her paintings. So, he proposed to do a painting at a dinner and Heidi gladly accepted.
The rest is history.
From then on, she started doing more and more live paintings at different types of events, from dinners to fundraisers.
The live paintings usually take her about three hours to finish. She looks at the nuances in the room, at symbols and other abstract things and pieces them all together like a puzzle.
If you are organizing a fundraiser, then one of the attendees can purchase Heidi’s painting at the end of the event, and you can use your money for your cause.
You could also commemorate your company’s milestone or a product launch, and you can even gift the painting to one of your partners or associates to show your appreciation for their hard work.
Whatever you decide to do with the painting after Heidi is finished, her artwork is going to be a topic of conversation for every guest. Also, if you choose to keep the painting, you will have a unique reminder of an extraordinary day.
