ADVENTURE INTO ART GAMES
Welcome the week of BORED GAMES where we will explore games to break the boredom!
Clear off the dining room table, and prepare to connect, create, and color!
Channel your inner Bob Ross and break out the paint set, clear off the dining room table, and prepare to connect, create, and color with art-centered activities.
Your challenge today is to turn your artistic spirit into a game to play with your friends and family!

BIG QUESTION OF THE DAY
Why do we make art?
How can art help you connect with others?
MOMENT OF JOY
THE GOOD STUFF
Watch + Learn
Parenting is hard in typical circumstances and even more so now during the unknown landscape of the Pandemic. Whatever you are or are not doing with your family is right! You are rockstars!
If spending too much time online or in a shared space has created tension in the house, spark some joy and create a family work of art!
Our favorite idea is to upcycle a plastic bottle cap mosaic. When students recycle their plastic bottles, have them save the caps in a separate container. Then, use them to create colorful mosaics, like this cheery frog. (Get more craft projects made with recycled materials here.)
Student Design Challenge
Here’s how to play Exquisite Corpse:
- Start with a blank piece of paper, something to write with, and three players.
- Fold your paper in three sections.
- The first person starts by only drawing on the top-most section, creating the head for your corpse. (Helpful hint: Make sure you extend your necklines a little onto the middle section so the next person knows where to continue from.)
- Fold over the top section so the second person can’t see it, and pass it to them.
- The second person draws the torso on the middle section, extending the bottom edge onto the bottom section so the last person knows where to continue from. When they are done drawing the torso, fold over the middle section so just the bottom section is visible and pass it along. The third person draws the legs and makes sure they connect to the torso lines.
- Unfold and relish in your collaborative artwork.
