Today is the last day of our blogroll for the new book my sister Linden McNeilly and I wrote: Map Art Lab.
In it you will find 52 map related projects. Some of them are pretty wildly abstract, some of them are more literal. There is something for everybody in here, and I mean every age, inclination, breed, personality, nationality, gender and educational background. We had fun with these ideas!
You can make a recycled wire map inspired by Alexander Calder. I made this from construction grade wire. It makes me laugh!
Teenage years need to be navigated carefully, so I made a map of my son at the age of 13.
Game boards are nearly always maps, and you can make your own! I am also doing a form of this class for 21 Secrets….You can sign up for that right here and you get a great early discount. The 21 Secrets project is a Map to Happy, game board style. You can win at your own game!
Then there is the Scroll Through Time project. Amy Kane Smith also did this one, see hers here. Mine is below, and it is all the places I have lived or visited for a length of time, and how they are connected. It is white pencil on paper that is painted black. Easy peasy.
Then you roll it up to stash it in a secret place.
There are many more projects and ideas that you can set in motion making your own maps of your own stories, and all of them are EASY!
