VIDEO: 9 Art Prompts To Try Today

A big mixed media flower illustration using 9 art prompts from Kim Dellow

 

I know that it is not always easy to art. You stare at that page in your journal, piece of paper, canvas and nothing happens. We have all been there at some point. Sometimes you might have no ideas popping out and sometimes you might just have too many ideas all clamouring for attention.

Well, in either case, often what you need to do is just do something and I am hoping that my 9 art prompts in today’s video will help you to get going and make some art. 

Whilst I talk you through them, you can also watch them in action on the piece I am creating today, and I used all of them but of course you don’t have to. Just pick out the ones that jump out for you for using on your next art project and I can’t wait to hear which of the 9 art prompts you pick, so do tell!

    I love this!!! My Mom, Aunt, and myself have been doing “art class” via Zoom for the past few weeks and we have been looking for something that will help us “find our own art”…these prompts will send us down that path! Thank you and stay safe and healthy 🙂
