1 In Art Every Day

Art Every Day – Day 13: A Week of Art, and I can’t do it all

It seems I was a bit ambitious when I decided that not only would I create art every day, but I would post it on this blog every day too!  In my head, I always imagine that I will have time enough for everything, but in the end the day is over, and there is always items on my to-do list left over.  This week, art happened, but blogging about it did not. 

I started to beat myself up over this, and then I remembered the reason I joined Art Every Day.  To make art.  To join in with others who think art and creativity are important.  To enjoy the process.

So that is what I am going to do.  Create art.  Every day.  And sometimes I will post it here, and sometimes I won’t.  And I will be ok with that.  This is supposed to be fun, right?

Here are a few of the projects I worked on this week:

Some of the rainbow fabrics I had fun playing with on Day 5 became a fun rainbow pencil roll.  (The pink fabric was chosen by a mom who wanted a roll for her pink-loving daughter.  Cute, isn’t it?)

More playing with fabric as I cut circles and squares of Christmas prints for more flowers.  I can’t wait to start sewing them together!

My students and I studied cave painting and then went outside and mixed up our own mud paint and created drawings on the playground pavement, with our hands!  What fun we had!

And I started working on a pattern for a sweater dinosaur.  My patterns aren’t much to look at, but here is what I drew for his friendly face.  (It will look much better when he comes to life, it always does!) 

Happy art making!

    Good for you for giving yourself ‘permission’ to not have to post every day. I hope you have a wonderful time creating and I look forward to seeing the things you have to share. 🙂
