Q: WHat is this?

A: It's an art movement

A way to stay creative.

A way to stay connected.

Q: How does it wOrk?

A: I post an idea for an art piece daily 10ish, on Twitter.

I do something creative in-line with the daily theme.

I post the resulting image here, on Instagram and Twitter using #CreateArtFeelBetter Using a hashtag allows anyone who searches #CreateArtFeelBetter to see all the work created related to this art movement.

I hope you find some time to create something, kids and adults welcome. There's no right way to participate, start anywhere on the list, go in-order, or don't follow the list at all, just stick to pieces you create on that day.
