Creative champions, '64 Million Artists' have set a daily challenge alongside varying communities to help people to become a little bit more creative and to show their work in a safe setting. Groups working with the deaf, blind, elderly, those from different cultures and those who need help after illness or rehabilitation are all involved in setting the daily tasks.
I often do a daily set of challenges during January, it helps me get back into creative thinking but I think this one is the most thought provoking and challenging I have ever done. Many of the challenges are aimed for those who are deaf or blind or who are unable to sketch. It has made me really think 'out of the box' and I have loved doing them.
I have included 2 of my drawings here but you can see all of them on my Instagram page http://www.instagram.com/maureenmaceart
I am taking part in a January Challenge to make a sketch a day. Today I have joined a new group called 64 Million Artists (though I don't think they actually have that many taking part).
The instructions are very different from previous challenges so I am intrigued. This is the first challenge that came in my email today:-
"The January Challenge 2023 is here! This year, all of the challenges have been designed by different individuals and community groups across the UK. There is a really varied mix of challenges coming up - and we can't wait to see where this month takes us. To get us started, today's challenge is from David Tovey, a member of the Associates Leadership Programme at Arts & Homelessness International. The Associates Programme is the first cultural leadership programme in history for creatives who are or have been homeless."
Theme today is 'A little bit of me' which evolves around an object, in my case this candle. Many of my art students have drawn this when they visit for classes.
