ICAD stands for Index-Card-A-Day Challenge. The goal is to create something on a 3" x 5" index card every day in June and July. ICAD is hosted and organized by Tammy at Daisy Yellow blog. She provides creative prompts and themes which you can choose to follow, or not. It's up to you. You can then share your creations via the Daisy Yellow ICAD Flickr group or Facebook group.
ICAD starts Saturday, June 1 but you are welcome to join whenever you'd like. Learn more about ICAD at this awesome FAQ page.
I participated in Index-Card-A-Day 2012 and had the best time ever. Besides working on a community mural, I'd never shared my art with an audience outside of school before. Through ICAD I discovered it's actually really fun. (You can see the cards I made last year here.)
My favorite thing about ICAD was the diverse group of participants. Many were just beginning a creative practice or- like me- picking one up again, some were more seasoned artists, and a few were children! Everyone was so encouraging, curious, clever, funny, unique, ... I couldn't have asked to spend my summer with a better group of people. I can't wait to do it again!
|Weird thing I drew tonight with zebra, crown, and recycle prompts and rainbow theme in mind. I found this index card and circle cut-out on the street. (Thanks RISD/ Brown grads!)|
I'll be sharing my index cards via the Daisy Yellow Index-Card-A-Day Flickr group. I hope you'll join us!
ICAD has me pumped about summer. What are you looking forward to this summer?
