Creative activities for exploring the unexpected

Following from the post above, here are some activities that are good for exploring the unexpected…

  • Drawing: try random marks on paper; take rubbings off different surfaces and see if you can find shapes and images in them
  • Collage: randomly stick cut and torn images alongside each other – surprise yourself with graphic possibilities
  • Writing: pick 20 – 30 random words from books, dictionaries, articles etc. then play around to create new meanings
  • Photography: point and shoot without framing the pictures. Lay out your pictures and see what you’ve got that you don’t normally see
  • Music: try different instruments, keys, beats and random sounds for new emotive possibilities
