Assignment: Keep Making Art!

For artists, there is never enough time to make art. 
Being stuck at home provides just what artists need:
Time, Space and Stuff for art-making. 
The only limit is one's own imagination - which is limitless! 
  • Find a box or container from around the house - Start assembling things you can use to make art (pens, pencils, papers, glue, tape, stapler, scissors, junk-mail, magazines, cardboard, string, needles/thread, fabric, yarn, mirror, recycled objects, markers, ruler, sketchbook, etc)
  • Set up a place for art making - table, desk, closet, floor in your room - someplace where you can put your stuff and think creatively
  • Some ideas to get you started: Magazine face collage, Origami (videos), Stop motion animation, Altered books, Torn scrap-paper landscape, Overlapping traced objects, Texture rubbing, Lego building, Blanket fort, Pop-ups (videos), Cereal box sketchbook cover, Food color paint mixing, Flour and water papier mache, Sock doll, Sock puppet, Potato prints, Draw to music, Flip-book in margins of paperback book, Marble run, Soap carving, Family portrait, “One-Liners” drawing
    ..or, maybe a Rube Goldberg-inspired contraption? watch

  • And now, for your listening pleasure...
