If your house is anything like mine, there is a lot of screen time going on right now. Screens for school, screens for work, screens for fun, screens because you are stuck inside while it is sleeting in April and there is nowhere to go. I wanted to share some ideas with you that I've created over years of teaching art to kids for ways to unplug and tap into the creative process. All of us can use these - even myself! After long days of working on digital illustration I can feel disconnected from the world. Some hands-on crafting reconnects me to the playful side of art making.
I've chosen to create these in pdf form instead of making a video because I feel overwhelmed by all of the (fantastic) educational videos and online events being created right now. Sometimes what we all need is to slow down, unplug, and do a home scavenger hunt through our recycling.
Feel free to download or print this first "class." Please credit my work and link to it here if you share.
