Register here, get involved and get creative! eventbrite.co.uk/e/fly-the-flag… Day 6 Pick up the phone, or put pen to paper, and contact a friend or family member you haven't spoken to in a while. Tonight me and my boys called my Aunt to wish her safe and enjoyable travels on her upcoming adventure. I can’t wait to hear about it when she returns. Rather than post a screen shot of our video chat, I’m sharing a pic of us from March when we exchanged our coloring club pages in person rather than via mail. #64millionartists #aocfestival #reachout Get creative with the small detail of a larger object. You could take a photograph, do a sketch, write a poem, focussing in on something that catches your attention. I simply swoon. Vann’s eyes and eyelashes may be the most beautiful and expressive I’ve ever seen. #64millionartists #aneyefordetail #eyes #eyelashes #son "A good stretch sorts a lot of things out." Day 7 Stand or sit with your group. Starting with your feet and moving up, have a gentle stretch of all parts of your body. Not sure we were gentle but we had fun! #aocfestival #64millionartists #stretch #funwithmyboys #DreamBoxAdventurers #64millionartists Coleridge-Taylor Cottage garden in Nether Stowey hides some interesting visitors ! #NationalTrust #poetry #language #nature #sculpture Day 6 #AoCFestival Reach out to a friend. Always sad to leave #Fife, but great chance to catch up with an old pal before heading south. #64MillionArtists #picsfromamovingtrain An eye for detail #DreamBoxAdventurers #64MillionArtists. I've drove past this house lots of times and only noticed the detail today. It's near a church and so I think it was built to be a vicarage. #Photography Weekly creative challenge 'An Eye for Detail.' I love how beautiful the centre of this flower looks. @64M_Artists #DreamBoxAdventurers #64millionArtists Use the bank holiday freedom to get in touch with a friend or family member. #AoCFestival #64MillionArtists April was #AutismAwarenessMonth and this week’s Challenge is designed to keep the conversation going and growing. @dreamboxeducation works to celebrate the potential and ability of autistic individuals by empowering them and their support networks; parents, carers, teachers and support workers through creating accessible and stimulating environments for creative conversation and tools. The butterfly detail in the DreamBox Education logo symbolises transformation, and recognises that a supportive network celebrates ability and enables growth. Many autistic children and adults have a great eye for detail, which can help with problem solving and finding solutions. For example, developmental psychologist Uta Frith found that many autistic children are exceptionally good at finding Wally from the Where’s Wally? picture books quickly! Inspired by this, DreamBox Education challenge us to find the beauty in the detail – focus on a particular bit of the ‘bigger picture’ and get creative. #autism #autismawareness #butterfly #detail #aneyefordetail #DreamBoxAdventurers #64MillionArtists #creativity #community The Weekly Challenge, 6th May 2019 - An Eye for Detail .

How could you make that tiny detail tell a story of its own? If you have more time … Where’s the butterfly? Could you create a piece of art that hides the DreamBox butterfly in it?

Post your letter to the INYBB team, for them to distribute to someone who might benefit from it. What did you learn and what is the most useful advice you can share? We sometimes forget how amazing, inspiring and resilient human beings can be when facing difficult situations in life, from bereavement to moving to a new area, being a new parent or carer to suffering from anxiety or living with an illness. Sharing lived experience of something can offer support, hope and positivity to others and make a real difference to helping them through something similar. Put an experience you've had, big, small or life changing, into words and share them with someone who needs them. #64millionartists #INYBB #lettersarebetter #snailmail #reachout #love #support #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #friends So excited to be receiving some letters from the wonderful Weekly Challengers @64millionartists Sharing their experiences to offer hope to others and spreading creative, postal positivity Never before has a doormat been such a joyful thing to behold #letters #envelopes #lettersarebetter #writemoreletters #sendmoremail #mailart #inybb #64millionartists So excited to be receiving great letters from the lovely Weekly Challengers @64M_Artists Writing a letter to someone they don’t know to share an experience that may provide hope or just spreading some positive creativity through the post #letters #inybb #64MillionArtists From singing, to magic, to games, to knitting-May is FULL of exciting creative events across the UK for @AgeofCreativity Fest. #64MillionArtists have teamed up with @age_uk @voluntaryarts to produce 31 simple creative challenges for each day!
