ICAD 2019 Prompts Week 1 & Themes Weeks 1-3
“Creativity is to discover a question that has never been asked.
If one brings up an idiosyncratic question, the answer
he gives will necessarily be unique as well.”
It’s the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge!

Daily Prompts: Week One
Prompts add a twist because you can follow them literally or use them as a nudge, a little fragment of an idea that guides your approach to the card-of-the-day. There are so many clever gyrations and an infinite number of ways that a particular prompt can be interpreted. You can use a prompt literally, dramatically, conversely, figuratively, logically, magically, and beyond. Just pick an adverb and go! More ideas: Look it up in the dictionary, brainstorm connotations and related words, translate into another language, find lyrics that include the words/phrase, etc.
Thematic Prompts: Weeks 1, 2, 3
Concepts and mediums that you might want to use to guide your work. The themes are not scientifically designed to work seamlessly with the daily prompts, that's part of the fun! Use the themes, use the prompts, use both... whatever works for you. Tried and true things that many artists love. Hoping that they lead you to explore some new-to-you ideas too!
