Goody goody Gumdrop Day! Who doesn’t smile at the memory of a gumdrop or landing on Candyland’s Gumdrop Pass and Gumdrop Mountain? Goody goody tidbits: Gumdrops are an American invention. Gumdrops are most eaten in the winter. The first Gumdrops became popular and were named in the mid 1800’s. Modern Gumdrops, which are softer, are credited to chemist and candy manufacturer Percy Trusdale, aka the Gumdrop King. Art prompt: Gumdrops from #oodlesofdoodleschallenge #nationalgumdropday #gumdropday #linesketch #lineartist #linedrawings #illustrationdaily #nashvilleartist #surelysimpleart #illustratie #asketchaday #1340art #adrawingaday #markerdrawing #markerartist #illustrationhowl #artistocratia #womenwhodraw #64millionartists #happyart #glitterpens #patterndesigner #surfacepatterns #patternmaker #patternlicious #patternlove #surfacepatterndesign It can be difficult, working as an artist, generally we are solitary creatures and very sensitive. Most of us struggle with thinking we are not good enough. But believe me when I tell you, you are so much more than you think. Your soul, your spirit, you art is unique... There is no one else that can think or feel or be the way you are and that is reflected in your art. Do your thing, put your art out there, and love what and who you are . . . . . . . . #originalartwork  #annasfunkyart  #artfromtheheart  #64millionartists  #artforsalebyartist  #artonline  #artworld_daily  #intuitiveartist  #artmakesmehappy  #artcommunity  #artcollections  #dontquit  #nevergiveup  #dreambig  #bepatient  #neverquit  #strongmind  #dontgiveup  #selfbelief  #bethebestyou  #positivethinking  #intuition  #dailyaffirmations  #spiritualjourney  #mindful  #spiritualguidance  #believeinyourself  #innerwork  #spiritualquotes  #lifepath #TheWeeklyChallenge #64MillionArtists Sound Prompt ❤ Happy Valentines to you and yours ❤ Feeling the Love today and saying Thank You to all the great and good people who support Kids Kreate ❤ We are lucky and happy to have such wonderful folk in our lives ❤ . . . ❤ We especially love #brixtonlibrary #brixtontatelibrary @lambeth_council @yellowqube1 and @stationhall_hernehill for supporting children and families through the provision of space for weekly free creativity at our Art Club We could not do this without you ❤ . . . ❤You make a lot of children and families very happy . . . ❤ Big Thanks also to our Sponsors this year @sevenc3 who brought a bounty of art materials to @yellowqube1 on Wednesday ❤ They helped the kids to decorate and embellish their Tote Bags, aren't they FAB! ❤ . . .

It has to be the sound of the waves, heard from the pier, the place I’d drag Sam to, in her wheelchair, bundled up with scarves and blankets, tucked into her waterproof poncho, hoping she liked it, not knowing what else to do but take her back to the sound she grew up with, waves dragging shingle up and down the beach. #fuckms Last minute work flew in today for some social media graphics with valentine food puns ... Sat here sketching out a few ideas has left us nothing but HUNGRY ! What’s your favourite foody valentine pun?

Keep going even when things don't go the way you think they should. We learn through failure and nothing happens quickly or first time; we need to practice and learn and fail, over and over.

Word image piece ' words, words, words' #64millionartists #mondayChallenge #poetry #language The Sound of This Place ! ',words,words words' #64millionartists #The Monday Challenge #poetry #wordimage #soundscapes This week's challenge is to capture the sounds of your place. If you are deaf or hearing impaired, could you choose a different sense to capture the personality of your chosen place? What does it smell like? What are the tastes, sights or textures around you? #64MillionArtists This week’s challenge is set by Gordon Baxter. Gordon has taken inspiration from Chiarra Luzzana’s “The Sound of City” project (google it! It's super cool! ), and challenges you to capture the sounds of the place where you live. What story do they tell? Close your eyes and just listen for a few moments… Can you capture the sounds around you without using images? You might choose to write a short poem or story that describes the sounds, or spend a couple of minutes recording the sounds using a voice recorder, or by taking a video on your phone (and blocking out the camera.) Could you use the sounds of this place to create some music? You might choose to use your recordings in a musical composition – or use the place as your percussion!

Never how I picture them in my head but enjoyed having a go. Not sure if this one is finished yet. I'll sit with it for a few days and see what it says to me. Yes I'm one of those intuitive artists that listens to their paintings - part of my process is to just sit and look!

Using the same method on hard canvas boards - this is what happened! What great results Art in Action The kids loved making their 'Forever Art' to take home . . . The crisp borders can only be achieved on high quality paper but we are lucky to have these artist quality hard boards donated by our Sponsors @sevenc3 Thank you . . . 'Forever Art' because it will last through their school years and beyond, they will always have art they loved making to display at home . . .

What could you restore, or repair using the things around you? #64millionartists #theweeklychallenge #thejanuarychallenge #litter #litterpicking Posted @withregram • @denise.dodge.54 #64millionartists #the weekly challenge So while I was thinking about the weekly challenge, whilst walking the dog on our community woodland, I decided repair could also be restore. So here is the rubbish collected in 3 visits so far.... Ironically one of the discarded plastic bottles is called Oasis! ☕️ The Repair Cafe! ☕️ The first weekly challenge of the year is to repair, or restore something around you. Love this from @kaztheraz! What could you repair? (Restoring cups of tea greatly encouraged...) #64millionartists #TheWeeklyChallenge #thejanuarychallenge #creative #repair Posted @withregram • @kaztheraz The daily challenges have become weekly ones! The challenge this week it's to get creative and repair or restore something. I've re-strung my friend's short, antique coral necklaces into one for her (keeping the original clasp of course!). #64MillionArtists #theweeklychallenge Today I completed a page from my #wreckitjournal that my topshop family got for my leaving do.
