9. Crazy cubes
Before we begin make sure about your drawings designs on the cubes. Remember a cube has 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices. That means, putting together your 9 wooden cubes you could create 36 different puzzle drawings!!!!
Watch the art tutorial to have an idea of the creative process and get ready your art materials such as markers , sharpies and pencils and don't forget the 9 wooden cubes!
7. Keep smiling
Now more than ever, we are missing to see people's mouth and they are a very important part of our body. They also are an art symbol very used in contemporary art.
Can you image the famous Monda Lisa without a mouth?

6. London SKYLINE
In the visual arts a cityscape (urban landscape) is an artistic representation, such as a painting, drawing, print, or photograph, of the physical aspects of a city or urban area. It is the urban equivalent of a landscape. Townscape is roughly synonymous with cityscape, though it implies the same difference in urban size and density (and even modernity) implicit in the difference between the words city and town. In urban design the terms refer to the configuration of built forms and interstitial space.
1. In a white paper, practise some watercolor rainbow patterns
This is an interesting "myth," because depending on how you look at it, it can be considered a true or false statement. You probably learned that the colours of the rainbow are (in order) red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
These are actually the colours of the visible spectrum. Red has the longest wavelength and violet the shortest. (Some scientists think indigo is so similar to the blue that it's indistinguishable for most people [source: National Geographic].) But those seven hues are not the only ones in the world, of course. Where's the pink, for example? Or brown? Or sage, aqua, celadon and coral?
Those colours, and more, are actually there in the rainbow. They're just invisible. Rainbows contain upward of 1 million colours – that's right, 1 million – in a much larger continuum than the seven measly ones with which we're familiar. Unfortunately, our human peepers can't see all of those other hues.
So does this mean rainbows contain them or not?
That's for you to debate:)
2. Practise London Skyline outlines with a black pen in a white paper.
3 Now paint a rainbow pattern on the mask and add the skyline.

5. CREATIVE MAPS
The world map is a group of
shapes. A shape is the external form, contours, or outline of someone or something. In the visual arts, shape is a flat, enclosed area of an artwork. Why not use a country shape to develop our creativity?
YOU WILL NEED:
The 3 activity worksheets (They are inside your Creative BOX)
Music paper (Inside your BOX)
Whipe gel pen (inside your BOX)
With this UK map, you can create a collage with magazine cut-outs and the British image icons below. You will create a creative map with lots of stories...
Adding these images you can create a satirical map which is an illustration with a cartographic element that has been produced specifically to make a comment upon the social, economic, or political state of things. More about it HERE
What about these maps? You can cut them and create an object or animal shape like the artist Kentaro Nagai or use your white gel pen to draw on it. Find different and inspirational ideas below :)
Let your imagination run free!!
funky maps where the countries and continents of the world have been arranged to represent different animals by the artist Kentaro Nagai
Kentaro Nagai is a Japanese graphic designer who operates his own artistic form of continental drift to rework the continents into animal shapes. Perhaps his best known illustrations formed his 2007 project entitled “The Twelve Animals.” that represent the Japanese Zodiac – rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and boar.

ABOUT SATIRICAL MAPS
Objective geographical representation isn’t always the intention of maps – they can also provide social, economic, or political commentary on a region, as British Library maps curator, Tom Harper discusses.
What is a satirical map?
All maps contain some sort of message about the world. Satirical maps however are a particularly opinionated genre of cartography. A satirical map is an illustration with a cartographic element that has been produced specifically to make a comment upon the social, economic, or political state of things.
The ‘map’ element of these illustrations might include the shape of a country or continent, a feature such as a forest or a city, or even a physical object such as a wall map or a globe.
4. ONE LINE PORTRAIT
Line art or line drawing is any image that consists of distinct straight or curved lines placed against a (usually plain) background, without gradations in shade (darkness) or hue (color) to represent two-dimensional or three-dimensional objects. ... Line art emphasizes form and outline, over color, shading, and texture.

2. FREDDIE BODY
“If you want peace of mind, come to Montreux,” said Freddie Mercury (1946-1991). In addition to living there, he recorded six albums with Queen, including "Made in Heaven". In memory of his presence in Montreux, Freddie Mercury’s bronze statue has decorated the lakeside promenade since 1996. What’s special about it? His fans keep it permanently in flower.
Freddie Mercury (1946-1991), the son of a British-Indian civil servant, was born in Zanzibar. Later he went to London, where he embarked on his fruitful cooperation with Queen in 1970.
In 1978, the singer came to the Montreux Jazz Festival to record the album “Jazz” with Queen. He fell in love with Montreux and Lake Geneva and decided to settle there. Incidentally, he used to say: “If you want peace of mind, come to Montreux”.
Freddie Mercury lived in a flat with a view of the lake and bought the “Mountain Studio” recording studio, which can be discovered through the Queen - The Studio Experience. He composed and recorded his last album with Queen there: “Made in Heaven”, whose cover shows Lake Geneva.
