Intro Art Abandonment!
I stumbled across a pin about "Found Art" but the website doesn't exist anymore.... the premise is that you create a mini work of art (really put your energy into it and do a good job) but then you leave it for someone to find and enjoy. Then the recipient can email you or post a picture in the facebook group letting you know they found it!
It's a sweet random-act-of-kindness sort of activity that could brighten a stranger's day while also teaching students to let go. So many students get paralyzed by the idea that their materials are too precious to use, that their subject matter is too personal to express, that their artwork is too amateur (or too amazing) to ever part with. I believe letting go is an important lesson for a young artist to learn and could absolutely lead to some bolder risks in the artmaking process.
If you knew there was a great chance that you'd never see this again, what would you create? What would you say? If you knew that a product wouldn't be tied to your name, what process would you try that you've never done before?
It's a fun idea and I'm curious to see how it grows and travels.
