Creative Every Day Theme for September 2013: Rhythm

September 1st, 2013

I apologize for the delay in posting September's theme! I was sick all week and didn't have a chance. This month's theme seems to flow right from last month's theme of cycles. I hope you enjoy it! At the end of each month I will announce the totally optional theme for the following month. For the month of September 2013, the theme will be Rhythm.

As always, this month's theme for the Creative Every Day Challenge is totally optional. Use it if it inspires you, continue being creative every day in your own way if it doesn't, or do something in between. You can sign up for the 2013 Creative Every Day Challenge anytime. More info can be found here and the sign-up page is here.

I'll be posting about the theme throughout the month on the blog to help keep you inspired. You can use the posts here for jumping off points or interpret the theme in your own creative way. If you need some suggestions, here are a few ideas to get you started. You could:

  • *Explore the idea of rhythm in a piece of art.  
  • *Create to your favorite music.   
  • *Make music. If you play an instrument, take it out and play. If you don't create rhythms with what you have, join a drum circle, make music with a child.   
  • *Pay attention to the rhythm of your days, write about it.    
  • *Include sheet music in collages.   
  • *Notice rhythms in Nature and let it inspire your work.   

How to use the CED themes:

If you're feeling creatively stuck or blocked at any point during the month, use the theme as a source of inspiration to get you moving. Feel free to focus on the theme in your creative activities for the entire month or as much as you'd like.

Using the theme is entirely optional for CED participants. Use it if it inspires you, ignore it if it doesn't. I'll be sharing posts throughout the month around the theme (among other things) to get you thinking about how to incorporate it into your life. I'd love to hear how you use the theme in your creative world.

And have fun with it!
