‘The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore
something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly
“artistic” — think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the
imagination. They spark whimsy. They encourage play. Since art is about the
play of ideas, they feed our creative work by replenishing our inner well
of images and inspiration. When choosing an Artist Date, it is good to ask
yourself, “what sounds fun?” — and then allow yourself to try it.’ – Julia Cameron
In future posts of this kind I will document other trips to museums and galleries, long walks in the woods, cosy creative sessions at home and much more!
But today, come along with me for an afternoon at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery (specifically in the art section!)…
Where would you take yourself to re-fuel your creativity and have fun by yourself? Let me know your ideas! Write to me on social media or leave a comment below.
Don’t forget my first ever market stall is at The Southbank Club in Bristol, this Saturday the 10th of December from 11am-4pm. I would love to see you there; bring all your friends and family for beautiful crafts, delicious food and wonderful music! Until next time!
Peace and love,
