Fun things for Camp- How to draw
While searching for fun things to do at camp we came across a funny series on YouTube videos aimed at “How to draw”. Now while this conventionally would not be appealing to a group of teenagers or indeed a group of 6 years olds, the quirky social aspect of it, turning it into a challenge became appealing. I must state that currently at our camp we have resisted any sort of technology and ban mobile phones, ipads, ipods etc so this may not be benefitical to use in its current state, but it did spark an idea.
How to draw- the blue series.
This person, going by sARTw (simple artwork) has put together a range of how to draw videos, drawn on post-it notes and in less than 9.9seconds. They can be seen on their YouTube channel or on their website D-99.com. The end results is somewhat lacking an impressive factor and in some cases in comical, but the over riding element is the challenge aspect in which he/she challenges the viewer to make a better attempt! So far, from what I can see there has been one video response in which what looks like a 4 year old attempts a response to “How to draw a cat”. His cute attempt ends up as a series of circles. While this would appear to undermin the intension it just adds to the comical and fun side of the challenge in that anyone can try!

The aim of the videos for this person, is to make the videos become popular through social awareness. They then hope that if the videos become popular then the actual pictures in the how to draw videos will become popular. They have then painted replicas of these drawings on canvas and the hope is that these will then become popular and;
through no significant artisit ability, an unknown has become a popular artist
The drawings are for sale on a seperate website under the persons artist name sARTw. Each time a painting is sold the price of the next goes up higher. The buyer also gets to present their banner or backlink beside the bought art! (Don’t forget you can advertise on our site too!)
So in making history and loving the idea, guess who bought the first “How to draw”-the blue series, painting!- WE DID.
