The Art for 30 Days challenge starts January 6, 2018

The Art for 30 Days challenge is so much fun! Here are a few participant comments:

“I have really enjoyed this! It has been so positive and encouraging and inspirational. I have learned a lot and enjoyed all the artists’ work. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it.”

“For me, to create is as close as I can get to God, to the divine. It’s not about what I produce, or how long I spend doing it. It’s about that connection. With that said, I think spending 15 minutes with God just kinda rocks, and whatever comes out of it is always perfect.”

“It’s been exhilarating to see creativity in action.”

“Thank you Vanessa. You gave me the push I needed to start again!”

“Thank you. It’s been a lot of fun and has stimulated a lot of creativity.”

“Thank you for inviting me to join your 15 min a day, Art for 30 Days group!! YOU were the inspiration for me to stretch my creative boundaries … and watch out, I may get dangerous!!!”

Why Art for 30 Days?

It’s difficult to make the time to write, doodle, paint, color, knit, (fill in your fave art-y activity here). Art always seems to be on the bottom of the to-do list or doesn’t even make it ONTO the list. Let’s commit together to Art for 30 Days — a 15-minute a day creativity camp you do on your own from wherever you are starting January 8, 2018. Want in?

A research study showed that adults who dedicated two hours each week to creating or consuming art over a twelve-month period reported significantly better mental well-being. That’s just 15 minutes a day!

Join me! You don’t need to be an artist to get the benefits of creating and engaging in art. A study published in Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association found that creative activity significantly lessens stress in the body, regardless of artistic experience or talent.

In addition to making art/crafts/whatever, your 15 minutes can also be in consuming art. Research a new recipe, take a gander at an artist’s website, watch a crafty demo on YouTube, or listen to a podcast. Whatever fills you up.

Then come over and post what you’re doing. It will be fun!

Our next Art for 30 Days challenge starts January 6, 2018. In the meantime, you’re welcome to join the group and post your creations, share cool art-y stuff, and cheer one another on.
