Art projects you can join!

Help create 1 MILLION DRAWINGS around the world!
Drawing Day is a world-wide event encouraging people to drop everything and draw on one day. Simply draw, and submit your drawings to their website or one of the participating sites. There are lots of ways to share your drawings. Check the Drawing Day website for details, ideas, and more.

...  is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. You upload your black-and-white photo portrait to their site and they will send you a poster to paste somewhere in your community for people to see. 

People can participate as an individual or in a group. Posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window to a wall of portraits on an abandoned building or a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and viewable virtually. See some photos and find out more here.

This is an annual traveling exhibition of sketchbooks created by artists like you. Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be part of the Project. To participate and receive a blank sketchbook that will join the 2012 tour, start by choosing one of 39 suggested themes here. The deadline to sign up is October 31, 2011. The cost is US$25 plus return postage.

And don't forget about 30 DAYS OF CREATIVITY, happening now, for the month of June (or whenever you can). Of course, you can create anything you like, it doesn't have to be Art. Check it out here.
