Day 9 - Scribbles & Shapes

(upbeat music) Hi everyone. I'm Ryan Putnam and this is 28 to Make. And right now we're gonna work on some scribbles and shapes. All you need for this one is a piece of paper, some markers, some pens and you need to find some scribbles. This is some scribbles that my three year old son did. You can make them yourself but it's fun to get kind of, some uninhibited scribbles. And you can even like, say your dog walks in from a muddy walk. Puts some paper down. Like, let him step on it. Then you have some kind of like weird scribble shapes. So you need this. And then, you also might need like a permanent marker kind of works. Something to over take the scribbles, essentially. And then what you do is look at the shapes within the scribble and try to like make a composition out of it. It could be like this is actually a jellyfish. So here is like the main shape here. And then here's some squiggle with tentacles, I guess they're called. But start to outline that with your big sharpie marker...

. Here's example of one of my son's scribbles. This is some like weird guy, I don't know, bending over? Kinda weird. I'm not sure. And then here's another one. Like his lines were like super energetic. So it got me thinking of like some bee boy dancer or something like that. It's really to fun to like take this exercise to use your eyes. To like see what you kind of create out of like, like a mess of nothingness. You could find something in everything kind of. And it's fun to like use the energy and like the different type of stroke that's all ready there. That's like kind of this one. I like this one a lot. But again, super excited to see what you guys come up with. Share it. Tag it, 28 to Make. And we'll see what you come up with. (bright music)

I was looking for a way to get back into the habit of creating. The class has some fun ideas for projects that are easy to work on, which is super helpful. Every day I was excited to see what my new project was! But...a few seemed to not be what I considered sketching or drawing and didn't seem to fit the description. Overall, very helpful though :)

I just loved the way this was presented and the immediate connection of the videos and their content which helped me discover and try things I would not have thought I could do. The affirmations from others doing the same thing and being able to gather ideas from the 'sharing' bit was also important for me. I have gained a lot creatively and it has fired parts of my imagination that lay hidden. I am just sorry it is formally over. I missed the last x3 sessions and the portfolio bit due to illness but will complete the other tasks and will continue explore developing those that really opened a creative slot for me. Above all thanks to the tutors - each of you - I loved the content you chose and the enthusiasm and creative energy you conveyed in just a few moments and the generous attitude of the skills share. That's it - Thank you, would recommend to anyone not to miss this opportunity.

Best course ever on Creative Live. It's the foundation for doing anything or everything creative. Even if you think your only creative interest is say photography ...and you're not a drawer, maker or artist of any kind ...think again. This course will open up your mind and you will discover that actually you are a creative and you can pick up a pencil and draw... and it doesn't take up much time... 10-20 minutes a day. In the beginning it's not about the end result, it's about the doing and how it sets something off in your brain. It will make a huge difference to everything else you put your hands and mind to in life.
