Today’s prompt was spark so I went with a fireworks related piece.
Today I set the challenge on my #goodmornning from #swanage Instagram post to try and beat 16 participants in a day for Art for Fun – by the end of the day – 24!!!!
So over four days in this half term holiday I have hosted 68 people drawing. Overall in 37 shop days, 130 or so have taken part. Today reflected what I want the activity to be about. Several children and parents said how their drawing wasn’t any good, but hey enjoyed the process. I did my inktober piece and completed my Prince Albert Memorial drawing too.
The range of drawing ideas today was great and some fantastic discussions too between different family groups, within family groups and so on. One young man drew on the suit he had missed doing two years ago in year 4 – that was a great example of completing a circle.
Some work examples from today:
So tomorrows forecast is dry, Friday and Saturday will probably be inside as wet forecast – how many art for fun participants can we get in 7 shop days finishing at 5pm on Saturday 30th October?<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6662-61b001e5409c2' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6662&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6662-61b001e5409c2' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6662-61b001e5409c2' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
