Make Today a Day for Art

Posted on Monday, 13 February 2012

It's easy to make every day a special day for art.

Carrie Fonder is an Art Road Art Instructor, a graduate of the Cranbrook Academy of Art Graduate Program, and a Fulbright Scholar.

Carrie helped us by sharing some tips to make today a day for art:

  • Be aware of the light as it changes during the day - is it bright and contrasty with dark shadows or is it something else?
  • Choose a single color in the morning and see how many time you see that color during the day.
  • Look closely at an art work today: see how the artist rendered the subject with lines or colors or textures.
  • Draw something! Get a piece of paper and something to draw with and just start drawing.
  • Pick out an item in the room right now and see how it is made up of simple shapes like squares and circles. You can use simple shapes to draw just about anything.
