Looking for something creative to do with your family at home or friends over Zoom? We’ve got you covered!
Using whatever materials you have around the house (seriously, anything goes!) create a truly terrible piece of art. Make it a competition and crown the worst of them all the winner! Here’s how it works:
Gather your supplies! Art supplies and other miscellaneous items will work. Here are few suggestions:
• paint 🎨
• dried pasta
• tin foil
• a picture of the family pet 🐈
💡 Remember to think outside the box!
Once you have gathered your supplies, set a time limit. We suggest 30 minutes ⏰ but this can be adapted.
Start a timer and get to work! Make a painting, mobile, structure, self-portrait—wherever your creativity takes you. And remember, make it really bad. The tackier, the better! 👀
When your time is up, make a gallery to show off your bad art. If you’re making it a competition, use paper slips as ballots 🗳️ and have everyone vote for the worst piece of art!
