Art Action Plans 1 and 2
Art Action 1: blue with floral elements
Art Action 2: Yellow with fairytale collage elements
Our task for the second week of The Artistic Mother's Art Group was to create Action Plans or "To Do" lists from the background papers we created in week one. The project outlined in Shona Cole's book, The Artistic Mother, suggests that this could also work well with a babysitter list. Although I love the idea, I don't really use babysitters yet (lucky to have Grandma close!) so I choose to create two separate sheets for the same purpose. The intention of the Art Action Plans are to encourage ourselves to create something on a daily basis by defining and working though our goals. The finished sheets were scanned into the computer so that they can be printed out and used week after week....
The Action Plans above were created with handmade background papers, vintage collage elements including Mother Goose illustrations, scrapbook papers, alpha stickers (version 1) glitter, water-soluble oil pastels and, in version 2, a vintage poem. The poem reads:
In childhood days a heart is free, / Outweighs the fears of destiny. / When youth arrives, dreams still remain / To lace each day with love's rich grain; / But age is when the heart and mind / Must have the courage to act blind. -- Caroline S. Kotowicz
