Create to Connect

Create to Connect, Day 8 – Nature Scenes

Today’s challenge is set by the Age of Creativity network. The Age of Creativity is a network of more than 1,000 professionals who all believe that creativity and culture supports older people to experience better health, wellbeing and quality of life. You can find lots of events for older people to get involved with online on their website!

Create the outside, inside. Recreate the natural world by layering materials on top of each other in a collage. Use newspapers, magazines, scrap paper, clothes – whatever materials you can find. What landscape will you choose? You might recreate mountains, the sea, a jungle or a snowy scene. You could work off of a photograph or your imagination…

If you have more time … 
Could you create your scene using words? Write down the words you might use to describe the scene, and layer and shape them to create some word art that captures your landscape.

Why did you choose the landscape you recreated?
If you could go there, what would you like to experience in that place?

Share your work in a way that works for you – online or offline. You could join our friendly Facebook group, keep a journal, share in a WhatsApp group, with your friends and family, or on social media. The choice is yours.
