This year we are crowdsourcing our challenges from around the country. Each challenge is set by a different organisation or initiative, which means we've seen everything from mysterious mask-making to powerful poetry to daring drawings. So... what's next? Well firstly we'll be featuring a challenge set by an individual. Georgina Scott. Georgina was a dedicated January Challenger and hasn't missed a Weekly Challenge yet. So, here's one she's set for you to do this week... . Create an 'Autobiographical Alphabet'. This could be an A-Z of things, people, events or moments from throughout your life, from the last year, or even things you encounter throughout the week. Start with A and see how far you get. Don't worry if you can't make it all the way to Z but give it a try! You could document in photos, collage, words or any other way you'd like. . Find the full challenge on our dothinkshare site (link in bio). . Don't forget to tag #64MillionArtists and share with us on social media.

This week the news here in Canada was dominated by Monday’s events in Toronto. I decided to take Tuesday’s banner headline from the Ottawa Citizen and make anagrams out of it using Scrabble tiles. For me it soothed the jangling vibe of the headline and the process became a meditation. #64MillionArtists and #WiseUp This image was prompted by the #64MillionArtists weekly challenge to 'reframe a media article and make it positive'.

Over the last few weeks we've been working with a fab group of YoungMinds Activists to co-devise a creative campaign #WiseUp around mental health in schools. As part of one of our workshop activities they envisioned and drew their interpretation of the 'positive school of the future', creating a wonderful panoramic wall drawing. Using this positive thinking and creative energy, they came up with a great idea for a challenge to set. They will be partaking but we'd like you to join in too... . Reframe a media article and make it positive. Can you highlight any promising information and emphasise it? Or mix up the headline to change the perspective? If there isn't much positivity to work with, you could use black out poetry (black out most of the text but leave out certain words to formulate a poem/creative sentence) to shift the mood. Or just have fun with what you have in front of you. Play, adapt, build on the words you find and creatively share them with us. . Find the full challenge on our dothinkshare site (link in bio). . Don't forget to tag #64MillionArtists and #WiseUp and share with us. Make a model of a landmark. You can tell I didn't spend all that long on this! But really pleased to have thought of something to do. #64MillionArtists #TheWeeklyChallenge #advantageofbeingapotter Day 110 .

A line drawing of my new favourite tea. The packaging is a really lovely orange colour but I have decided to concentrate on the lines in this drawing.

I drew it from a photo though as I didn’t have my sketch book with me so don’t think it is very good . I find it hard to draw objects from photos now as the object is flattened and hence distorted. #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #64millionartists #weeklychallenge #angel20 #pisa Legendary landmark -Walked Gardens eighteenth century landmarks and now featuring in digital culture communities in Pursuit of Paradise perhaps not only the pineapple ! #64millionartists #angelofthenorth #walledgardens #drawingmatters #mapping Whilst everyone is off having an inspiring day at @IFLSuffolk, we’re unleashing a bit of #everydaycreativity in the office || An homage to local landmark Norwich Market || Special to us as it represents community, food, culture and colour! #64MillionArtists So whilst everyone is off having an inspiring day at the International Festival of Learning at @westsuffolkcollege, we’re unleashing a bit of #everydaycreativity in the office. Here’s our homage to local landmark Norwich Market || @64millionartists #64millionartists Weekly Challenge, 16th April - Legendary Landmarks . It's that wonderful time again, it's time for Gateshead Council's monthly creative challenge! As we launched the challenges this year, we also introduced the #Angel20 programme and since then we've seen fabulous Angel of the North birthday cards (celebrating 20 years) and many moving guardian angel poems. Each activity has provoked us to reflect on the sculpture in different ways. This week we want to take a step back and ask what makes the Angel of the North one of the most recognisable landmarks in Britain? What makes it so iconic? Will we still be talking about it for years to come? Considering these questions and more broadly the UK and our notable sites... . Make a model of a landmark. It could be a local landmark, your favourite or the one you think is most recognisable. Is it a castle, a tower, a statue or a building? How historic is it? What makes it special? Display this in your model. You could make it from recycling, paper or anything you can find at home or work. Don't worry about making it too elaborate or detailed - just have some fun this week. .

Slightly late, but here is my photo, taken nine years ago, but I don't think I can better it. My best outcomes from yesterday's #cyanotype experiments @northernprint.org.uk. The original photographs were taken as part of the #64millionartists challenges...so it's rather fitting that this weeks challenge has a blue tint to it! : @craftyauntietasha Just about settling down after a hectic couple of weeks!! So, Inspired by #64millionartists weekly challenge, here’s a little 5 min cornflower sketch... Happy springtime everyone Day 102 ‘There are still lots of lovely #daffodils in the shops and these beauties look fab in my #cathkidston #jug #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #64millionartists #week10 #uniteforparkinsons I will be planting these lovely cornflower seeds in my new garden once I have moved. For now they will sit in an ickle bottle waiting for their moment. #wiseup arts challenge 1. • Yesterday's challenge from @64millionartists was to create a hashtag based on your day and maybe even do a little doodle of it!! My hashtag was #driveitlikeyoustoleit , inspired by the song from Sing Street, which I was listening to at full volume that morning to kick-start my day. I chose the hashtag because I felt like yesterday was a really good day with organising things and thinking about what I'd like to do to support @youngmindsuk #FightingFor campaign!! Love and Peace xox Our team's weird and wonderful response to this week's creative challenge. We tried to create a 3D cornflower for #uniteforparkinsons, what do you think? Thanks Derby Parkinson's for setting us this challenge - it kicked off our away day brilliantly! . #everydaycreativity #64millionartists #cornflowers #parkinsons : @rossbolwill Taking inspiration from this weeks @64millionartists #WeeklyChallenge to reimagine the cornflower to bring awareness of Parkinson’s disease and stand united against it #uniteagainstparkinsons #64millionartists ☂️ This is my response to the #64MillionArtists Weekly Challenge for April 9th, which is raising awareness of Parkinson's. The Parkinson’s Flower is the Cornflower. I am making what I call my 'memory' quilt. The coloured fabrics I am using were gathered from a stash of fabric remnants left from 45 years of sewing projects done by my mother, my two sisters and me. Yesterday I came across a 1980s-vintage piece of Laura Ashley home furnishing fabric that had a Cornflower as part of its design. I cut a quilt square out of it and have incorporated it into my quilt top. #UniteForParkinsons #64MillionArtists : @tezni #64millionartists #uniteforparkinsons #cornflower #weeklychallenge
