#crapfaces #faces #64millionartists @stevexoh Weekly Challenge, 3rd September - Crap Faces . This week's challenge is for people who tell themselves they cannot draw, or those who can draw but are trapped in one style, or anyone else who wants to play with a paradoxical way of stretching your artistic abilities. It is set by artist Steve Chapman and is inspired by his new book - 100 Crap Faces. We also thought the challenge could act as a reminder that just because it's the first week back after summer and the beginning of September - we shouldn't stop having fun! Take the edge off this week and give it a try... (you could also win one of Steve's books! Read on to learn more). . Draw a series of crap faces! Create a 3 x 3 grid on a piece of paper to create 9 boxes. In each box intentionally draw a crap face, a picture that you do not think is any good. Once you have finished, look back at your pictures and score them. If you really, really don’t like them then mark them as CRAP. If, however, you accidentally draw one that you like, even a little bit, you must mark it as NOT CRAP. Have a go and share! . Find the full challenge on our dothinkshare site (link in bio). . Post your images and your scores to us and Steve @stevexoh on Twitter and Instagram. You can tag us or use #64MillionArtists then be in with a chance at winning Steve's book 100 Crap Faces as we pull 3 lucky winners out of a hat! Don't miss out. Day 245 Interesting Wine Bottle and it tasted good too! #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles Day 244 Wonky chocolate bar !

We thought for this week’s challenge we would set an activity here at 64 Million Artists! We’ve been beavering away for most of the summer, developing new projects, nurturing existing ones and generally trying to practice creativity and self care. But in doing so, we almost forgot to book our summer holidays! We therefore have all scrambled to each get a week in the work calendar and now have back-to-back breaks. 64 Million Artists’ holiday starts here (don’t worry there will always be someone in the office to help)! We thought this called for a particular challenge so this week we are inviting you to… . Write a short story about a favourite holiday or seaside memory. Cast your mind back and relive a memorable time or share a recent experience. Where were you? What were you doing and with who? What could you see, smell, touch, taste, hear? Bring the scene to life and take us on a journey with you. . Find the full challenge on our dothinkshare site (link in bio). . Share your stories with us and, if you had time, your drawings too. Hashtag #64millionartists. Day 234 It’s such a rainy Sunday here so I am catching up with my drawing project by drawing a bunch of bananas - next job is to tidy my studio. #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles Day 233 New #sketchbook so #sketching my mugs #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles #stabilopoint88 Day 232 Another beauty from my #collection #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles #cupandsaucer Day 232 I am somewhat behind with this project but trying to get back on track today.

I tried this but it got me really annoyed and uptight, so instead here is a picture of an old family game of Spillikins, where you have to remove pieces without wobbling any others.

Over the last few months we have been planning and running the project Creativity in Mind. With research partner UCL, we are exploring the impact of everyday creativity on people experiencing low mood and anxiety. The 30-day programmes will run on WhatsApp with daily creative prompts. These prompts have been developed in 3 workshops over August whereby a group came together with 3 artists, our team and UCL researcher to use their wonderful imagination and lived experienced to brainstorm ideas. For this week’s challenge we’d love to share one of them with you to try… . Build a balance sculpture. Pairing relaxation with patience and intense focus and risk – attempt to mindfully build something by balancing different components. Take it slow and see how far you get. You may have seen this with stone stacking before but feel free to try different materials or techniques. What can you challenge yourself with? What can you build? . Find the full challenge on our dothinkshare site (link in bio). . Share a picture of your balance sculpture! We’d love to see them.

Here are some vintage gardening tools I spotted at the Garden Museum #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles In my last workshop for @64millionartists , My workshop is inspired by legendary artist, Yoko Ono’s seminal book, ‘Grapefruit.’ We love inspiration quotes, poetry & slogans on @instagram, but @yokoonoofficialearly 60s works were almost a precursor to this way of looking at the world. My opinion, off course. I was lucky enough to perform at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown in 2013, in the world premiere of ‘Double Fantasy Live,’ to close the festival. #64MillionArtists #Workshop #Creativity #MentalHealth #YokoOno #Grapefruit Day 216 My cousin asked me to draw the house she lived in when she was young. I visited it many times but never realised how ornate it was.

Who or what would you make a statue of? Create your statue or work with a photo. Where would it be? My statue of Bob Dylan would be in the middle of Stroud High Street. It would be cast in bronze. Day 215 Sketching the shops in #Dorking. I love the different architecture on the High Street and the independent shops. #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles #urbansketching Just thinking about identity and the artist -made this @64M_Artists focus group #lanyards #artists #creativity #64millionartists #Identity
