We are underway with Abrakadoodle’s Splat Doodle weekly art challenge, and we are thrilled by the early response from children and members of the community who are taking part!
Abrakadoodle’s first #SplatDoodle art activity was inspired by Piet Mondrian, a Dutch artist famous for his abstract paintings. He used lines, colors and shapes on his paintings to express his ideas. He also loved music and dancing! Participants were encouraged to use any materials at home to create a picture with lines, shapes and colors and to be creative! Enjoy a sampling of the art that was submitted by children and adults who used hashtag #SplatDoodle and tagged @abrakadoodlehq.
Abrakadoodle’s second #SplatDoodle art activity was inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, who was an Austrian artist. Since Hundertwasser did not have a studio, he painted wherever he was — at home, in nature or on the road. He loved to paint spirals on his paintings and he was a “protector of nature.” Participants for this challenge were encouraged to use any materials at home to create a picture based upon Hundertwasser’s swirling style. Enjoy the art that was submitted by participants using hashtag #SplatDoodle and tagged @abrakadoodlehq.
Try these and upcoming Splat Doodle art challenge activities, and then share your art with us! We invite families to share the art creations via their social media, using the hash tag #SplatDoodle, and to tag @abrakadoodle.
As Rosemarie Hartnett, Abrakadoodle’s President and Co-Founder remarked in her introductory article, “The Splat Doodle Art Challenge as a way to continue to nurture creativity in children and help them to focus on the positive and uplifting process of creating art! We see it as a way to stay connected through the beauty of art during this very difficult time. We hope you will join us!”
