I love the way that ICAD reinforces the good and positive activity of making creative stuff. It allows us to establish [or refresh] and try things that we might not try in more formal or weighty work. It gives us an excuse to take risks, play, explore, not worry so much about results.
Each year, I try to develop a plan to help challengers continue to be enthusiastic about art-making. This year I've developed something called The Creative Nudge, a mix of explorations, examples, ideas, and videos.Read More
The light was good today ~ bright sun behind puffy clouds ~ so I filmed a little video while I played with gouache. Love watching the paint flow from planet to planet.Read More
Hi folks! How are you!?!? I've just finished a new project called The Creative Nudge and I know you will LOVE it. It's a new series of flexible, open-ended activities & prompts! My original goal was to transform The Circle Workshop into an ebook, but it's seven levels of awesomeness better than I ever imagined! Oh, plus some index card collage tutorials too!Read More
You know how I'm always talking 🗃 about keeping your creative momentum spinning year-round?
Not letting the energy fade? Sticking with the positive creative habits that you refresh during ICAD each year?
Ⓜ️andalas & geometric patterns 🙃 are our themes for Week 5️⃣ of the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge
where our goal is to make 61 cards in 61 days, at the pace of ONE per DAY! I've done 4 Instagram Lives this week where we did mandala draw-alongs, and I hope you caught one of them! Be sure to follow me at @gypsy999 to catch future arty fun.
