Find what is missing. Look around at the world and notice what we need. You could take a picture of a space, somewhere outside or somewhere inside, and imagine what could fill it, capturing your vision through drawing. You could think of a specific thing, a person or object, and write their story. Interpret the missing things in any creative way you like. It might be something big or small… if you feel like a good dance is missing from your everyday….put some music on and get moving! 


If you have more time…

If you did a drawing of a space and filled it – try writing a story! 

If you wrote a story about a missing thing – try doing a drawing!
