Day 5 of #CreateToConnect Creation Station I like to listen to songs on repeat until I get sick and bored of them. These are some of the current songs I'm listening to on repeat. • One of my favorite things to do while listening to music is to draw (that's a nice coincidence)! I've recently been listening to a lot of Twenty One Pilots, but during this drawing I put all of these songs on a queue and let that accompany my drawing. • Thanks @64millionartists for the creative prompts everyday!! #64millionartists #NewDrawingIdeas #IListenToALotOfLoveSongs How many songs can you spot?! This beautiful response to today’s challenge is inspired by @playlistforlifeuk #dementiacare ❤️ #createtoconnect #64millionartists Posted @withregram • @rachelwickert #createtoconnect Day 5 ~ Creation Station ~ we used today’s nudge from @64millionartists to revisit David’s #playlistforlife @playlistforlifeuk . #dementiacare For Day 5 of #CreateToConnect it had to be this one. We all need a bit of love in our lives right now! ❤️ #64MillionArtists #CreateToConnect #64MillionArtists Day 5 - Creation Station A selection of music from many years all bringing back memories Day 5 : Creation Station - make a playlist or pick a song. So after playing many cool tunes from my youth today and thinking of which ones to choose for a play list, in the end one song and video, Blurs "Coffee and TV" became my inspiration. This tune came out when I was 15/ 16 years old. I finally showed my 7 year old the video today and he was very upset ( lots of tears) with little milk cartons fate, in spite of the ending.. SO what's a Mom to do but make your own milk carton pal ASAP. What a tune though... https://youtu.be/GXRVX1AKAew #Createtoconnect #64millionartists #creationstation #Blur #britpop #coffeeandtv #kawaii #crafty #milkcartoncrafts #music #90smusic #1999 #huawei) Window to the world #createtoconnect #64millionartists #64MillionArtists #CreateToConnect #hyoc2020 Day Five - Creation Station My song list would be endless. My music taste is somewhat eclectic and broad. So today I decided to focus on what I was feeling right now in this moment for my song choice. That is... enourmous gratitude, hope and acknowledgement for all those who offer something to others in whatever measure in these trying times. This brings light in dark times to know just how many good, kind and thoughtful people are out there. My song choice - Thankful by Josh Groban - performed by Rise Up Children's Choir It’s Friday! (Promise...) Let’s bring home the Friday feeling love this from Jean in our Facebook group #createtoconnect #64millionartists #music #fridayfeeling Birds flying high.... thanks John for sharing this with us on Twitter, along with your musical suggestion to keep us ‘Feeling Good’ #createtoconnect #64millionartists #feelinggood #music #fridayfeeling Hey, you! Yes, you! Do you want a song stuck in your head? we have been singing and dancing all day, thanks to your fantastic suggested for today’s music challenge! let’s dance... it’s Friday! Thanks @ruth.hall.1217727 for this great suggestion! #createtoconnect #64millionartists #dance #friday Sketchbook Revival 2020 sampling: We are on Day 5!!! This challenge consists of 14 days with two online classes each day. The idea is to help you encourage a regular practice of your art. As an artist, you must play and practice and exercise and be challenged. You cannot produce a masterpiece every single time. They take a long time. Usually more than a day and the experimentation, the allowing your brain to just be creative is how you get to a really satisfying final piece of art. A lot of artists don’t like to show their doodlings in practice. But I think that adds to the attitude that a lot of people think that they can’t draw or paint. So, here are some of my practices and pieces that challenged me this week. Each one is done very quickly probably in less than an hour or so. Various mediums, so enjoy! The only piece I want to call to your attention is the first one of the spring house in the woods. This is a real, incredibly beautiful place in the Kettle Moraine state forest in southeast Wisconsin in the United States. Eagle, Wisconsin is about 4 miles as the crow flies from where we live. When our youngest went off to college, we moved to this area. This remains one of my favorite places here. It used to be a horse racing track with a hotel and a spring water bottling company named Minihaha Bottling developed over 100 years ago by Andrew Papst of the Pabst beer family from Milwaukee. He donated it to the state parks system. This is one of dozens of other ground Springs in the area. There are some other interesting spring houses but it is absolutely incredible to witness and understand that the water from this little waterfall out of the springhouse all comes from springs that bring water to the surface and enough of the volume to maintain this little spillway. #princetonbrushes #FaberCastelUSA #gellyrollpens #winsorandnewton #winsorandnewtonwatercolors #DanielSmithArtistMaterials #ArchesPaper #GrumbackerArt #benfranklincraftswi #HolbeinArtistMaterials #WorldWatercolorGroup #kickinthecreatives #kickinthecreativeschallenge #creativitymatterspodcast #DoodleWash #PentelOfAmerica #64millionartists #FaberCastelGlobal #sketchbookrevival2020 It’s Friday!

This is a very mindful exercise which will help you to relax, feel calm and unwind. Before you begin, bring your awareness to your breath, taking 3 long, deep, slow breaths. As you begin, look careful at the circles, noticing the patterns, colours and shapes. Watch your pen as it moves across the page and be aware of the movement of your hands. Listen to the sound of the pen as it moves on the paper. Be aware of how the muscles in your fingers, hands, arms and body feel as you draw. Pause and take time to look and consider where and how you will make your next mark. Enjoy the process . . . #annasfunkyart #zentangleart #hyoc2020 #hertscreatives #creativehertfordshire #64millionartists #artistsupportpledge #watercolourpainting #watercolors #doodlesketch #doodleart #calm #breathe #breatheinbreatheout #mindfulart #zentanglelovers #mindfulness #unwind #selfkindness #worthiness #selfcarethreads #selfcare #selfcompassion #buyart #shareart #supportsmallbusiness #supportoneanother #posca #poscapens #derwentinktense Repost @64millionartists Day....5!

Today's prompt was to explore ways to say hello. I may be unable to say hello to others in person, but now there is a little sign greeting anyone on my street. It's a little sign, but a little color is better than no color and a little reminder that you are not alone is better than no reminder. #64millionartists #windowtotheworld #addingcolortomystreet 'Join the Dots’ #64millionartists challenge. I took a photo of a native dormant Montana plant I found out hiking, combined with my favorite star formation, the #pleiades. Challenge Day 10: First, create a random group of dots – you could use a pen to make random dots, or even splash some cold tea onto a page with your hands, or paint with a toothbrush. You might even find a pattern of dots in a photograph or in your surroundings.  Join the dots to make something appear. You might find a pattern, a creature, a word or a constellation – give it a go and see what you find when you join the dots. #montanamoment #astronomyart #dots In a different art project we hung rainbows on our front door. So we took to the sidewalk in front of our house. We left colorful messages for our neighbors who are social distancing outdoors and enjoying the sunshine. We videoed our path so those who don’t live near us can enjoy the happy drawings (or those who didn’t see it before the pop up shower washed it away). We had so much fun in the sun! Once the rain forecast clears up, we will do this again! PS - our bird got the worm! PSS - nothing was hurt. V thought G killed the birds worm. #64millionartists #createtoconnect #windowtotheworld #sidewalkchalk #socialdistancing #neigborhood #familyart #thankyou #deliverypeople so many colourful and creative responses to today’s challenge.
