Inspiration Games

Sometimes it’s hard to know where our inspiration comes from. We see, hear and react to things all the time, non-stop. It’s a blur!

I thought it would be fun to turn getting inspiration into a series of games (spinners, dice & cards!) This way we can follow our thoughts and track the origins of our future ideas.

Inspiration is generated within you as the artist from seemingly random elements and personal forces. The interpretation of the work you create is constructed in the minds of the viewers. We all bring our own set of experiences to what we see in things as a creator and as a viewer of art.

Are you ready to play some Inspiration Games? OK, here we go!

1. Spin the wheel and write down the object that you land on!

2. Spin this wheel and write down the emotion that you land on!

3. Roll the Dice – write down the form associated with your number

4. Pick a Card – write down the directive that is on the card
