The 100DayProject

The Solstice Project 2022

December 21, 2021 – March 20, 2022

What is the 100DayProject?

The 100DayProject is about cultivating a creative habit. It started as a daily practice and in 2021 and 2022 has shifted to a weekly practice from Solstice to Equinox. This is not about judgment – it’s about doing one thing, every week or every day for 100 days. You can start the morning with one simple task; draw your coffee mug, glue some paper, create new designs, practice a new song, write a poem. The idea is to get into your creative brain, to not think — just do. What matters most is that for about 10 minutes during your day (or longer) you are focused on your commitment. Things will evolve, ideas will emerge and this exercise will allow you to develop, jumpstart, or renew a creative habit. The good news is it help you to generate artistic ideas that will inevitably  spill out into your other art work.

The 100DayProject is organized by artists Ann Russ and Catherine Benda from Marquette, Michigan, who, in 2015, invited the Grand Marais Art Colony to be a sister-organization for this project.
