This week we will be inspired by the color GREEN! Yes, as simple as that. Picking a color is truly one of my favorite kinds of art prompts. It may seem too simple, but trust me, you can make it as complicated (or not) as you like!
When my kids were young, I used a color prompt all the time when we were traveling. I’d ask them to pick a color that morning before we headed out to tour around. The instructions were basic, when they would see the color, they would snap a quick picture. It could be nature, scenery, an object, something someone was wearing, food, whatever they saw that had the color. At the end of the day, I told them to use an app (since they always had their phones with them) and create a collage of their finds. Their discoveries and their collages always made for loads of conversations that evening, as well as a great memory of the day.
So, this week be on the hunt for green! Be sure to share your findings with me. I can’t wait to see the green in your world!
