Start Your Art: 48 warm-up exercises to jumpstart your art!
Deck of Cards
Stuck? Blocked? Bored? Uninspired?
Then it’s time for you to play! Jumpstart your art with 15 minutes of “bad” art so you can spend the rest of your day getting to the good stuff.
Start Your Art is a deck of cards that uses the Elements of Art as a jumping point for 48 exercises to get you going in your studio. Each exercise is meant to be 15 minutes long but you can play as quickly or as slowly as you desire.
Get yourself to your creative workspace. Pull out your stuff, them pick any card. Set a timer for 15 minutes (or more if you wish) and start playing. If you want to go easy on yourself, use the medium you are most comfortable with. If you want to push yourself into the wild unknown, use a medium new to you. Stay within a size that is small enough to finish in 15 minutes, such as 5″ x 7″.
Also available as a digital download, perfect for keeping on your smart phone, ready to pull out for any art emergency!
