The Weekly Challenge, 1st July 2019 - Squiggling! . Pick up your pens, and get ready to squiggle… This week’s challenge is set by Play Act Create Transform who work to celebrate the transformative power of creativity & play in all areas of life. PACT offers bespoke workshops for teams, schools staff, pupils and members of the public using play, laughter and fun to lower stress and promote wellbeing. This challenge is one of their favourite ways to put pen to paper and get creative in all sorts of places and spaces. Squiggle! Place a pen on a piece of paper. Look away and draw a random squiggle. Now look at your squiggle - you can turn the paper round and look from all angles – and without thinking about it too much turn your squiggle into a recognisable image. It might become a face, an animal, a nature scene - whatever you see. Give it a go and see what comes out. You could add colour, or try a few on one page and see what scene comes to life. . Share using #Squiggling and #64MillionArtists and find us on Twitter, Instagram and on our welcoming Facebook challenge group! .

This week (24th- 30thJune), hundreds of Arts organisations and human rights charities invite you to Fly The Flag for human rights. .

Thanks @pact_creative for this AWESOME short video. It’s #TimeToCreate! @londonartsinhealth #64millionartists #5minscreativity #creative #wellbeing #community #play I took part in the @64millionartists weekly challenge this week to celebrate creativity and wellbeing week. The challenge was to make a video running less than a minute of something which contributes to your wellbeing during the week – no other rules. Now I am not a video maker or a visual artist, and I have no video software on my computer, but I do love a creative challenge – especially something to do with wellbeing! I love the imperfection of it (luckily) and I love that the process of creating something with wellbeing in mind contributed to my wellbeing too! Happy Creativity and Wellbeing Week – long may your weeks continue to be fully of...yup, creativity and wellbeing (and playfulness of course). If you want to make your own video, just tag 64millionartists and @londonartsinhealth and hashtag #timetocreate – they will post all videos tomorrow to celebrate the week – fancy trying it?
