The Month of Creativity
January is here! The Month of Creativity! This is a fun project where you work on your project every day in January and then show it off in February.
There is no judging and every project is appreciated. One year artist Flora Finley created a painting a day. Other ideas include knitting, needlework, painting, drawing, writing, taking photos, collecting or keeping a diary.
There are no rules or requirements. This was started as Fun A Day to relieve winter blues and have something to look forward to every day of this dark month. It happens all over the country.
The “show” will happen on Feb. 16 at the Forks library from noon to 3 p.m. We will display our projects, visit, and enjoy some treats. Everyone is invited with or without a project. You might be inspired to try something new next year.
