There’s no limit to artistic expression. Everyone creates in their own way – children especially. Even a happy arrangement of toys comes from somewhere inside – from that place where make-believe and aesthetics produce a set-up that’s as pleasing to the imagination as it is to the eye.

So here’s a collection of a dozen playful artistic activities to pass a few hours of lockdown. All free, of course. One more tiny contribution to the common good, produced in collaboration with those lovely designers at Creative Triangle. The design and the projects are theirs; the words and methods are mine.

Extracts for A squiggly stare, Everyday alphabets, and The robots are coming are below – full instructions, including creative variations and examples, in the PDF.

Share and share again

If you know anyone else who’d love to create, please forward or share as often as you like.
