Minimalistic Poster

It has been a while since the last dare. Sorry about that, we had some problems on our end. That aside, I have a new dare for you! This one is influenced by Pixar this time around. As some of you may know, we are celebrating our 125 Year Anniversary here at the Cogswell. On that same note, Pixar is Celebrating their 25 Year Anniversary and with that they released a cool little poster recently that I love.

Dare of the Week

Yet another new feature I am bringing to the blog is something that I am calling the “Dare of the Week”.

You see, we all need a little inspiration and push to get working sometimes and can be especially true when it comes to our personal work. I have heard many ways of going about keeping your creative juices flowing: 365 Days Project, Weekly Challenges, Daily Inspiration, etc. However, I have seen them work for a good chunk of people but the rest of us tend to dwindle after the first few.

What’s the reason for this? Well, I think its the wording used. Words like “challenge” and “project” have been used too often and in addition to that they make whatever is associated with that sound like “W” word: WORK.

My theory: Let’s get back to our roots as children. Let’s think back to when you were on the playground with your friends and somebody got a crazy idea, what was the first thing that someone said?


And it always seemed to work! The best thing about it was that it wasn’t just to prove to your friends and everyone watching that you could do it, but deep down inside, you wanted to prove it to yourself.

So friends, this is my backhanded gift to you. A weekly dare. It’s going to range from easy to extremely challenging. Who knows, if we keep this up and get a good amount of participation, maybe we could get an area of the school dedicated to displaying the work. Let’s push ourselves everyone!

THIS WEEK’S DARE: Draw me something cute!

After you are done with your dare, throw it up on the Cogswell Facebook page!!!
