Welcome to the first set of 100% optional prompts, available just in case you need a spark on any particular day. The index-card-a-day challenge starts June 1st, so you are joining just in time!
Zoom out. Think about the art materials that you might utilize or the concepts that you'll use this week. If you'd like a spark, use the ICAD Themes for the week. Zoom in even further, to a particular day, and you find a prompt for each day.
So the Theme for Week #1 is Drawing & doodling. The mediums or tools are pens, markers and ink. You can just use this Theme and skip the prompts.... or use the prompts and skip the theme... or combine them both in some cleverly wondrous way. They are not scientifically designed to work seamlessly, but rather to challenge you to think in creative ways.
The prompt for ICAD #1 is CHEVRON, ICAD #2 is CARNIVAL, and so on. The first card you do will be #1, and keep numbering your cards from there. If you skip a day, keep numbering sequentially so that your number always represents your total cards. Doing even 30 cards will make a difference in you creative process. So give it a try!
So ICAD officially starts June 1st. I'll be staring my first card on May 31st so that I can actually post on June 1st. You can post "late" in the FB group but not early! I post the prompts a few days early so that you can start scheming and brainstorming for the week ahead.
