6/30 Zine


It's the last day of TERPart for 2016 so lets end it with a collaboration Zine. I included some examples from pintrest above and pika pika land below if you haven't made a zine before but I used to make zines in art school and it's a fun way to wrap up the everyday renaissance experience.

Design a page that's a piece of computer paper folded in half (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) and the unifying theme will be the positives that you've learned and taken away from this creative challenge experience.  Include art, words, collage, or whatever but use it as a reflective process.  Photograph the piece and I'll arrage all of the pages into a small art zine that can be printed and shared.  I hope you enjoyed it, have a great summer and stay creative!



6/29 Highlights- Artist Trading Cards

We have five people who joined in our Artist Trading Card exchange so far so I'm looking forward to seeing the artwork that we'll be sharing, here are a few of the highlights so far:

6/29- Artist Trading Card


It's the day before the last day of TERPart so I thought I'd like to repeat one of the favorite challenges from last summer-Artist Trading Cards. Last year we had a small exchange which you can see on the Vine video above and the content is totally open, just create the work on a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of paper or board. If you want to trade ATC's try to make between 3-7 cards and send me a confirmation email at needlesart@gmail.com and I'll reply with the instructions which are pretty simple. Have fun, be creative and share the results with hashtag #TERPart and #k12artchallenge

6/28- Figure Drawing



I think it's always helpful to keep your figure drawing skills sharp so today's challenge will be to draw or paint from life.  I like to sit and draw strangers but it's takes some speed and patience but you can draw anyone include pets or yourself.  You can keep it informal and create a page of sketches like my example above or really out some more time into it and create a more complete drawing.  Use any media and share it with hashtag #TERPart and #k12artchallenge.
