I find that as I work I’m always coming up with ideas for art projects, and while some are good some are a bit crazy. So my idea this week is really simple because spring has arrived and I’m enjoying the simple pleasures of being outside, and so I’m behind on a couple of my own ideas.
Make 10 to 20 paper airplanes and hang them in a tree or trees, and leave them there in the hope that someone will find them. Photograph the event if you can. If you wish to do the idea let me know how it went.
I find that as I work I’m always coming up with ideas for art projects, and while some are good some are a bit crazy. So my idea this week is…
Another spring cleanup idea. Take several straight tree branches that are about 2 feet long and cut one end so that it is pointy. Paint the tip of the point a bright colour, and paint the blunt end of the branch pink. The idea is to make the branches look like colour pencils. The stick should have bark on it, but it’s okay if it doesn’t. Place the sticks along a walking path or in a public area in the hope that someone finds them.
Does anyone want to follow this idea as well and let me know about it?
My Wednesday Idea for last week was to make two signs that point towards each other, and say Next Arrow. This was a fun, and silly project. Today Sam and I went for a walk and placed the signs on the trail near our house. I placed them in the brush that runs along the trail, and I managed not to fall into the water filled ditch.
Make 2 signs in the shape of arrows from a durable material such as wood, metal, or heavy cardboard. Paint them a bright eye catching colour, and on them write the words Next Arrow. Place them pointing at one another in a place where passers by will be likely to see them.
