Leave a Comment

100 Days of Creative Ideas 41-50.


41. Tear a piece of cardboard from a box. Paint a forest of birch trees with white gesso or paint. Add details with a black pen when the white paint is completely dry.

42. Want to try a new technique? Improve on an existing skill? Hop over to the inter-webs and find a video via an artist’s blog or YouTube channel.

43. Look in some books or magazines and find pictures or photographs of buildings. Copy them into your sketchbook. Draw a street or a landmark or a village on a mountainside.

44. What is your favorite colour? Make a sketchbook or a single using only that colour and shades of it. A blue series, how pretty would that be?

45. Make a little single signature sketchbook/notebook. Use some lovely paper and keep it small enough to staple the pages in down the spine.  How about a tiny book?

46. Make a quick (up to a minute) sketch of someone in movement. Maybe a walking figure, how about a yoga pose or a dancer?

47. Listen to The Jealous Curator‘s ‘Art for your ear’ podcast. Summer camp has just started #AFYEcamp. Lots of inspiration in this fab podcast.  Let’s go to camp!

48. Draw a tree stump with all of its lines. Use a real tree or use a photo for reference.  How old is the tree?

49. Write a poem. Make it rhyme or don’t. How about a haiku? Don’t overthink it, write lots.  Here’s mine.

Spend the time on a poem

See how you go.

Start a page in your book,

Watch the words flow.

50. Draw with a kid or a group of kids. Any age, big or small. Let them tell you what to draw!
