The Paintbrush Playbook

In art school I often found myself in class daydreaming and doodling and turning the teacher's assignments into a creation of characters. I did it mostly with letters that were meant for my learning purpose, but the real joy came when a teacher had a print out with some type of weird shape that pushed my imagination to create a little character. Maybe this is why I love this prompt from Paintbrush Playbook so much?

Art is defined as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. And as anyone who has experienced the process of creating art knows: art is fun.
