Happy Sunday Creative Soul!  


We believe that creativity is a skill we were all born with.  We also believe that cultivating a creative habit in your daily routine has the power to truly transform your life.  

Today, we're going to explore this a bit AND kick off our A Doodle A Day activity to help bring this practice into reality. 

Why, you ask, should I cram one more thing into my already packed day?  Well.  Let's see.  

+Making art is meditative.  It calms your nervous system, reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.

+Creating art - of any kind - helps your brain form new thoughts, leading to more innovative thinking and problem-solving.

+Buliding a creative practice and sharing it with others strengthens
social connection, builds community and helps connect you to your purpose.  Not just digitally, but most importantly IRL.

+IT"S FUN.  And who doesn't love fun?!?

Let's get started.  

 

The Activity.

 

Each day, set a timer for 5 or 10 minutes and doodle, draw, scribble.  Make it quick.   Sketch your coffee mug.  Draw your dog.  Involve your kids.  Or not.  Just draw.

Not sure what to doodle? 

+Pick a subject and sketch it from a different angle every day.  Keep it simple, and make it something you see daily.  A banana, your fiddle leaf fig, a kids sock.  
+Doodle over a magazine, catalog, postcard, photo - adding your own elements to what already exists.
+Draw a giraffe surfing.  A cloud taking a nap.  A self-portrait.  
+Freehand a shape that brings you a smile.

The point of this week’s activity is to get you started in small doses, without rules.  There are no wrong answers, no bad doodles.  We are teaching your eyes to see and your brain to translate that sight to your hands.  

 

Draw something.  Daily.  Do it again.  Over and over.  Your happiness + health will improve.  And that will make those around you happy.  🙌

 

SHARE YOUR WORK.  Last, we'd love to see you share your work.  You can tag us on Instagram with #thecolorkind.  OR join our private Facebook group and share + interact with other Color Kinders.  We'll be posting our doodles there all week, and hope you'll pop in! 

We can't wait to see what you DO!
