Lians-Gnitniap, or snail-painting, is an ancient Aprillian art-form which uses the slime produced by the native trifaer snails to create vibrantly colored paints. It was believed that snails which spent time on the artist's head would absorb the artist's dream of their future painting, which ensured top-quality slime-paint.
In May, it is a common tradition for the middle-aged of the rural towns to find a spot where a particular vine is sprouting, and just lay down, meditating on man and nature. After the participants are deemed sufficiently overgrown, they enter a spring ball and a howling competition, since the vines are also incredibly stingy.
Itsfain is an Aprillian art of breaking things just enough so you can still keep using them, but can really feel like they are yours. Itsfainers usually start with simply folding the corners of book pages. As they gain courage they may start gently chipping mugs on taps while doing dishes. The true master itsfainer keeps a broken cell phone screen for years, while training pets such as cats to tear sheets and sofas to shreds.
In summertime the youth of Aprillia gather together for Kakkaraoke, the shared joy of singing through a flower. This tradition is frowned upon in today’s enlightened society, since it can empty pharmacy shelves of hay fever medicine in a week.
Lizarting is the ancient Aprillian art-form of lizartists attempting to best embody the spirit of their chosen reptile. Many lizartists are to be found in communes in the city sewers, but others try to blend in with the rest of the population. Lizartists are not always up to date on the latest fashions, however.
Known as ‘the invisible art’, the rearing and training of tardigrades is a popular hobby in Aprillia. Skilled tardigrades have been known to learn to sit, play dead, and ‘shake hands’. However, nobody can see them do it, because of their microscopic size.
