TASK (social distancing version 2020) While we are away from school, my students and I will be making art in a variety of ways. We’ll also be trying to bring joy to our lives. To that end, here are a set of tasks that are meant to inspire creativity, play, and inquiry.
Collaborate, explore, keep going. Do at least one a week and post it on our shared class blog, upreptask.blogspot.com. (Email me so you can get an invitation to be an author on the blog.) Post your documentation along with the text of the prompt. Feel free to add other text.
Record a conversation with a friend where you only say one syllable words to each other
Clean out a drawer, box, closet, etc, and make a sculpture of the items you would have otherwise thrown out
Go find someone with whom you DON'T need to social distance. Share a hug for at least 10 seconds. But go for 20.
Do a full on photoshoot with your pet
Take a walk in your neighborhood (or in your house, if you prefer) and take at least 3 pictures of things you see representing each color of the rainbow. Then stitch them together in an app like Photo Collage,
