Create to Connect

Create to Connect, Day 9 – Wild People

Today’s challenge is from Ignite Imaginations, an arts charity based in South Yorkshire who work with people of all ages to celebrate and connect communities through art and creativity. This activity is designed by Ignite Imagination’s artist, Laura Page.

Do
Make your own wild character from things you can find around your house or in the garden…think snowman but with no snow! Is your wild character green and leafy, beady-eyed or colourful with blossom petals? Perhaps they’re tall with tins, or long with loo roll?

If you have more time … 
Place your wild character in different scenarios in your area. Can you make a big picture of something out of random materials to fill a floor or a window in your house?

Think 
How did it feel to create ‘something’ out of ‘nothing’? How quickly did your wild character appear? How have you had to be resourceful over the lockdown period?

Share
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.
