PDXDF: Design Your Own Daily Project

In this workshop, you'll learn strategies for how to develop a consistent creative habit, from Molly McLeod, the author of The Daily Project Deck. All creative mediums are welcome, and no experience is necessary!

You’ll learn:

  • How cultivating a regular creative habit can transform your life
  • Tips for getting past your stopping points and excuses
  • Principles and practices for making art consistently with ease and joy
  • A process for coming up with your own daily project or creative habit

You'll get to participate by:

  • Looking at what gets in the way of engaging with your art practice
  • Brainstorming ideas for daily creative projects you'd love,
  • Practicing the project you're considering and talking about it with other attendees

You'll leave with a clear commitment to your next daily project, whether it's 7 days or 100 days.
