ArTaG … what?!?
In the spirit of creating a challenge for myself, I’ve come up with ArTaG – an art tagging game!
How many of us when feeling pressure have said, “I just don’t have time to sketch!” “Stop overthinking and just do it”, I say, but starting can be the hard part. In order to help motivate myself, and to help myself be accountable to others, I’m tagging friends through messaging to see if they want to “play”!
I just did a 4 minute sketch and messaged it off to a friend who is now “it”; she has been tagged! The tag sketching game is in her court! Now I wait (go about my daily business – drink tea, eat chocolate, sketch more, hold my granddaughter, paint) for my friend to complete her 4 minute sketch (hopefully within 24 hours to keep it fresh) and message it back to me! The concept is to do new fresh sketches with each tagging. The great part about ArTaG is you set your own length of time for the sketch! It’s fun to experiment, try a 30 second, 1 minute, 5 minute or 20 minutes! It’s amazing what can be accomplished in each of those amounts of time. I like putting the date and time on the sketch to document my work.
Be on the lookout! I may be tagging you, next!
