What is the 100DayProject?

The 100DayProject is about cultivating a creative habit. Simply do one small creative exercise daily and then move on with your day. This is not about judgment – it’s about doing one thing, 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 a creative habit. The good news is it will spill out into your art work.

The 100DayProject is organized by 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. Anyone who completes 20 or more days of the project is eligible to submit work to a digital exhibition at the finale.
