Art Quote of the Day

” Get a blank piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Close your eyes and scribble all over the paper. Make the scribble as random as possible and scribble for as long or as little as you like. OPen your eyes and look at what is on the paper. Now comes the fun part! Turn that scribble into something recognizable. Look at the positive and negative space. Identify the shapes within the shapes. Recognize repeating patterns. Use your imagination and have fun!

Derek Bender, Orlando FL from the book, CAFFEINE FOR THE CREATIVE MIND by Stefan Mamaw & Wendy Oldfield
