Tomorrow's the Day!

This is it, folks!  Last call for the Fun-A-Day train!

Actually, there are no Fun-A-Day police, so if you start on Sunday, or Monday, or any day really, no one will judge you.  (Promise.)  And your February will be all the better for it!

Don't stress.  Pick something you think would be fun and easy to do each day in February.  If you complete all 28 days, gold star for you!  If you only complete 10 days, that's 10 more days of fun than you would have had otherwise.  And you're coming together with other people in your community—artists and non-artists alike—to make this a winter to remember.  That's pretty awesome, too.

So visit your local book store/library/craft store/closet this afternoon, gather all your supplies, and get ready for the best month of this unrelenting winter!  Hurrah!

Fun-A-Day idea #28:

Create a diorama of your room.




... Or your house, or your neighborhood, or your dream.


Use construction paper, magazine collage, clay, sticks, fabric scraps, moss, Popsicle sticks, paint, mirrors, beads...  Remember how fun this was??  Add one item each day, or just work on it all month.

Fun-A-Day idea #27:

Draw the news.


The best way I can think of to do this, is to listen to the news on the radio each morning or evening, and then draw what you hear.  You could draw a cartoon reenactment of an event, or someone's reaction to the event, or the face of the person who is talking (be sure to write down a quote they're saying!).  Think about how you will present/collect all 28 of your drawings together—an artistic newspaper of sorts!
