Stuck? Blocked? Bored?


Then it’s time for you to play! Jumpstart your art with 15 minutes of “bad” art so you can spend the rest of your day getting to the good stuff.

Start Your Art is a deck of cards that uses the Elements of Art as a jumping point for 48 exercises to get you going in your studio. Each exercise is meant to be 15 minutes long but you can play as quickly or as slowly as you desire.

Pull your smartphone out of your pocket and pull up a random exercise any time you feel the need to jumpstart your creative practice. Any medium, any place, any time.  Take 15 minutes to make “bad art” so that you can free up your creative juices and move on to the good stuff.

Play with your students!

Play on your own!

Play with a group!

Play with your children!

You have permission to throw your “bad art” away. Use scraps or use the good stuff in any medium you prefer. Make a mess! Nobody has to see it. Your playtime. Your rules!


Get yourself to your creative workspace. Pull out your stuff, them pick any card. Set a timer for 15 minutes (or more if you wish) and start playing. If you want to go easy on yourself, use the medium you are most comfortable with. If you want to push yourself into the wild unknown, use a medium new to you. Stay within a size that is small enough to finish in 15 minutes, such as 5″ x 7″.
