Get creative and share your work with us!
Research shows that creative activities help the brain to cope with emotions. Since we’re all still in a state of flux right now, our Vice Chair Melinda Appleby and our Chair Genevieve Rudd decided now is a good time to share some creative prompts to keep us all inspired and making throughout this hard time.
As a result, we’ll be sharing a creative prompt in our newsletter every fortnight that we’d love for our readers (members and non-members alike) to engage with. We’ll keep the details of them all on this page for you to go back to anytime, and if you’d like to share what you’ve made after following the prompt, send us photos to add to our newsletter and our Finding Silver Linings page.
Creative Prompt #1: A Brush with Nature
By Genevieve Rudd, Great Yarmouth
During lockdown, I’ve been thinking more and more about resource-light art approaches which utilise things found in the immediate environment. For me, that environment has been my garden with its small “No Mow May” lawn that has taken my interest over the last few weeks. As well as cultivating a long grass drift and making dried grass nests, I’ve been ink painting with grass too, and then turning them into cyanotype photographic prints.
