Today starts a new feature, where I will provide you with a challenge for the upcoming week. I encourage you to share your interpretations, reactions, and results to these prompts wherever you so choose. Maybe you’ll share on social media with the hashtag #uncustomaryart, maybe on your own blog, or maybe just in a summary paragraph in a comment on this post. Or maybe you don’t want to share with anyone but your personal journal, which is completely fine, too. Just take time to explore these topics and yourself.
Weekly Prompt #1: Go in nature
Ideas: Take a hike Visit an arboretum or butterfly garden Collect leaves, stones, or insects Take your dog for a walk Go rock climbing Go on a nature scavenger hunt Take a drive through a rural area Plant some seeds Climb a tree Dip your toes in water Camp in your backyard Have an art picnic Paint rocks Create natural artwork Search for and photography spider webs
Every week, I will choose my favorite response and that person will receive a card in the mail from me. So make sure I know your post exists! (Link to me or use my hashtag.) The interpretation is completely up to you, and there is no wrong answer. So go surround yourself with streams, bark, and moss. Can’t wait to hear what you get into as you celebrate nature.
