"The fundamental truth: a baseball game
is nothing but a great slow contraption
for getting you to pay attention
to the cadence of a summer day."
The May Experiments
For tracking purposes, each experiment is valued at one creativity point unless otherwise noted.
♣ Peruse a hardware store for tiny things to use in your art, from wire to paint chips
♣ Carve an eraser stamp
♣ Create an art journal page with one color + black + white... you can mix the three of course
♣ Develop a summer project list for your kids or yourself (2 points per list)
♣ Create art focused on numbers; numerals of any type, numbers as symbols, the concept of numbers, math, geometric shapes or counting
♣ Create-Your-Own-Experiment (this is like a Joker card, use it as you wish)
♣ Describe an amusement park from your childhood, in words or mixed media art
♣ Do a mind map, project webbing, participate in a brainstorm or list pros/cons for a decision
♣ Read a book about creativity, creative projects, photography, art, design or writing
♣ Set a timer for 12 minutes. Write a stream-of-conscious page about a favorite song (like top 10)
♣ Work a sudoku, jigsaw or crossword puzzle
♣ Create art involving fiber; i.e., sew on an art journal page, make a friendship bracelet, knit, use fabric in a collage, dye/stamp fabric
