A Message to everyone during this difficult time ❤ At home with the children? Feeling stressed because of all the COVID-19 news??? Creating art helps to calm us no matter what age we are and this is so important during this stressful time.
Here is a simple recipe you can follow using a few normal everyday ingredients most of us already have in our homes.
To make the paint you just need water, instant coffee and some honey. Making and then using the paint is an activity for the whole family or for a person in isolation their own.
Let’s get creative! Don’t forget to share your paintings with IWS, we would love to see them.

With the continuous development and expansion of IWS, our board reorganize the structure of IWS, there will be no significant changes but just some terms might be modified to better suit the present circumstances. The name of IWS Globe will be modified and re-name to IWS Globe Network, from which, it will be separated into two divisions, non- profit / charitable IWS branches and IWS commercial institutions. The two divisions will be more clear for management purposes and to avoid any confusion. IWS Branches: Each branch is directly under the main umbrella of the IWS Globe Network. The branches must be a non-profit organization and they are recommended to be registered in their own respective countries. All branches are independent and can organize IWS events as long as they follow the mission of the IWS Globe Network. IWS Institutions: This is the commercial division of IWS including, but not limited to galleries, art cafe, education centre, art centre, art group, museum and art villages. IWS institutions are authorized to use IWS logos upon signing the agreement with IWS Globe Network.
