Daily Art Prompt

Daily Art Prompt

Each morning during Artists and Makers Week, artist Kim Bernard created a short time-lapse video introducing an art prompt and demonstrating an example and the outcome. Participants took part in the prompt, submitted their work, and then all of the entries were combined into a singular image. Check out all of the prompts and the amazing collaborative art projects created!
