Creative Challenges
Over the last while I’ve enjoyed sharing a weekly art challenge with friends. Each week we stipulate a medium and a subject and sometimes another parameter. It has been stimulating and instructive and, most of all, FUN! I think it’s a good sign when you find yourself laughing and smiling while creating. 

A few examples:

A composition in colour based on herbarium reference material.

Herbarium Inspiration
Canson XL mixed media paper, 10 x 7 inches
Pencil, watercolour, colour pencil

Kitchen item, drawn with left hand. 

Jug, drawn with left-hand
Canson XL mixed media paper, 10 x 7 inches
Pencil, Caran d’Ache Neocolor II water-soluble crayon

Kitchen utensils, in colour, working in a large format. I chose some antique whisks.

Antique Whisks
Paper (type unknown), 21 x 14 inches
Mixed media

Chair(s), collage. I call this “The Book Club.”

Creativity has many forms. Collectif members, share yours! Send JPG images of your creative mind at work to cagac.ca@gmail.com with up to 100 words per image describing what you did, materials used, inspiration, etc. Maybe share how/if creativity helps. Please include size (height by width), title & media for all images. 

Writers – we really want to hear from you! Send us poetry, lyrics, an excerpt. Try to include an illustration of some sort. 

Give us informative, inspiring show & tell. Thank you!

  2. Your drawings are lovely, Allison! I love the Herbarium inspiration. The collage and the drawing of the whisks are fun. And I am impressed by how well you can draw with your left hand.
