JANUARY: 10 Minute Art Challenge

10 minute art challenge
Art and about in 10 minutes.

Today marks a new beginning, it's a New Year afterall. Since a yearlong committment can be overwhelming at times, I'm making this year extra special. For this year I will be making short term projects that will be made monthly. Every month will be a venue for different tasks depending on my mood and need.

January will be all about making visual art. I have been losing touch with my first love so I'm glad I've found a way to reconnect.The original concept that I'm adapting can be found here.

Here are my #10MinArt Rules:

  1. I will set a timer for 10 minutes and stop immediately when the timer goes off.
  2. I give myself permission to spend time planning that doesn’t count towards the 10 minutes. I can’t get much done if I need time to set up paints etc.
  3. I give myself permission to hit pause if I need drying time, to go to the bathroom, etc. But I CANNOT stop the clock to do more ‘composing’ in my head. Once I start, I’m committed to finish no matter what.
  4. It is OK to use printed materials or repurpose parts of old works.
  5. There are no do-overs or start-overs due to mistakes. I will force myself to work with what I have, and try to make something beautiful out of unintended course changes.
  6. All artistic mediums can be used provided that it can fit inside my art book.
  7. Scanned artworks will be posted daily with less than 200 words description.
  8. The challenge will cover the period January 2-31, 2017.
