This spring, I am stretching my creativity by participating in #creativesprint , a 30 day prompt challenge. You’ll see my creative process in three parts: 1. Making an Image 2. Reflecting on Ideas and 3. Sharing insights and excitement about the Art Yowza Camp Heroes Journey.
I joyously spilled my jar of change on the table and thought about the beauty of finding shells on the beach. It's so curious which ones you'll pick up, clean up, carry, keep and share. I started sorting the change and created the word YES with the quarters, dimes and nickels.
I know a local elementary school has a fundraiser that starts with everyone bringing pennies on Monday, nickels on Tuesday, dimes on Wednesdays, etc. I love the idea of starting small and building skills and value. In fact each day of the week of summer camp builds on a heroes journey.
Curiosity and Hero Adventurers on Mondays
Caring and Magical Mentors on Tuesday
Challenges and Wild Challengers on Wednesdays
Creativity and Future Inventors on Thursdays
Change-makers and game changers on Fridays
