The January Challenge 2020

The January Challenge 2020 – Day 14, We Are Family

Today’s challenge is set by the Family Arts Campaign. The Family Arts Campaign is a national initiative to increase access to arts and culture for families of all ages.

The word ‘family’ takes on all sorts of different meanings, and comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes and places. It might mean your siblings, your pets, your friends, colleagues, the people that care for you, or the people that you care for. It might a community that you enjoy being a part of – online or offline.

Create your version of a ‘family tree.’ Your tree might be a doodle, or it might be made of thumbprints, leaves, photographs, objects. There is no right and wrong – there are many different types of family, and many ways that you might want to do this challenge.

Spend 10 minutes today finding a creative way to capture yours.

If you have more time … 
Think about what family means to you, and what form you’d choose to express that. It could be writing five key words, or a poem, or even a song.

How did you approach doing this challenge? How did you find the process?
