I went to look in my office drawer for such a box to show you and found that I actually had a 96 crayon box hidden away from an old project. I didn't even remember that.
|Not 64, but 96 Crayola crayons|
I was talking with a friend about creating art and I thought about how inspiring any size new box of crayons could be to someone who is looking for a creative project to begin or work on again.
So my suggestion is to go out and buy a box of crayons -- any number of crayons will do -- and start a project with them. Draw and color in an art journal, print out some mandala patterns to color or make some greeting cards for Valentine's Day. Doesn't matter what you do just that you do something. And don't be intimidated by all of those perfectly sharpened, untouched tips on the crayons. Go ahead and use them.
So many artists on the web talk about not trying to be perfect in everything, to strive for progress not perfection.
I think that is a good lesson for all of us.
