As a high school teacher, I forget sometimes that there is a little kid inside each one of us that is dying to sit in a circle and share our ideas. Last week, on our field trip to the MET, I giggled at a group of 16-17 year olds having "Circle Time" and discussing paintings. Its always important to slow down a little and just have some circle time!
As an art teacher and over all craft-project-obsessed person, I often imagine what would happen if I dedicated just a little time each day to a project just as I used to do as a kid to my coloring books and paper cutting projects. I found this great blog where the author does just this - dedicates 365 days a year to being creative! I love it!
The author of the blog has also authored a book where he gives inspiration for creating something 365 days a year. Oh Amazon, I cannot stay away!
Many other artists have become inspired and are staring their own 365 day projects!
