Global Collaboration Day: Friends Academy Global Draw

Hello There. You have arrived!

This is the place where you will find art made by artists from all over the world someday, but currently, just the USA.
Do you want to take part in the Friends Academy Global Draw?
If yes, then click on this highlighted link to the Google presentation. It is there where you will find all you need to know about joining the art making fun.
Basically, our idea is based on offering up a simple drawing direction to the world and seeing where people take it. Like how we perceive the prompt and allow our creative minds to work with it. The images below were made based on a simple direction to divide a square into 3 rectangles, color the larger one blue and the two smaller triangles any other colors.We named it “out of the blue, a rainbow is born“. Each group assembled their individual designs into a larger whole while keeping in mind how they would tessellate, or connect, to make a cohesive design. View the phots that were shared below. You may see stripes, diamonds, zig zags. What will you create?
