The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 1st July 2019 – Squiggling

Pick up your pens, and get ready to squiggle…

This week’s challenge is set by PACT Creative (Play Act Create Transform), who work to celebrate the transformative power of creativity & play in all areas of life. PACT offers bespoke workshops for teams, schools staff, pupils and members of the public using play, laughter and fun to lower stress and promote wellbeing. This challenge is one of their favourite ways to put pen to paper and get creative in all sorts of places and spaces.

Squiggle! Place a pen on a piece of paper. Look away and draw a random squiggle. Now look at your squiggle – you can turn the paper round and look from all angles –  and without thinking about it too much turn your squiggle into a recognisable image. It might become a face, an animal, a nature scene – whatever you see. Give it a go and see what comes out. You could add colour, or try a few on one page and see what scene comes to life. 

If you have more time … 
Find a partner and take turns to squiggle to build a picture. You could try to do it in silence and let your pens do the talking!Think 
What did you find in your creation? Do you like what you made? Could you give it another go and see what happens?
