10. Suzanne Scott
WhimSicAL Lush
“The Owl and the Pussycat” … went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat. This year WhimSicAL LusH has chosen one of her favourite childhood poems to bring to life in a delicate 3D hand illustrated sculpture. Look closely for little hidden details and curios that will surely make you smile!

This gorgeous artwork slowly spinned around in the sunlight, allowing you to follow the owl and the pusscat on their boating adventure! 

IMG_9518IMG_9522IMG_9523IMG_9529

11. Marilyn Rattray
’31 tesserae’ – A daily mosaic.

This incredible piece was a mystery in its process to many who follow Marilyn. It all became impressively clear when each daily mosaic became one, in this creative and tactile collage.

 

12. Yasmin Lawson
‘Room With a View’.

Beautiful illustrations alongside delicate sculpture, and that’s just what’s on the wall. Yasmin’s sketchbook was filled with so many colourful collections of buildings, it was a joy to delve into!

15. Jen Smith
‘trying to get my printer to work.’

Part 2 of Jen’s Fun A Day Dundee project. Last year the printer really did not work, and she exhibited her ‘revenge’ for it failing to print her photographs. This year we get to see an intriguing collection that outlines her January from an intimate, and yet distant view.

IMG_9413IMG_9416IMG_9420IMG_9415

16. Lillias
Creating characters using makeup.

Creating and playing, while using everyday products and materials to create these brilliant characters! Amazing 🙂 Looks like fun, but we’re not so sure it would be as fun to remove it all!

IMG_9583IMG_9585

17. Amy Cameron
‘Real or Fake’ – By digitally manipulating images are we producing a fake image or was the original image a true representation anyway?

IMG_9466IMG_9467

18. Judy Scott
‘FLORA AND FAUNA’ – Draw Print Collage and Stitch.

A beautiful collection of work by Judy, using a variety of mediums that all appear delicate, whether they’re made using glass, textile, or paper. IMG_9613

19. Sandra Cassidy
The idea was to make a new creature/stuffed animal each day (or as close to that as possible), and see where that takes me. They were make quickly and without an initial plan in place, just experimenting along the way.

These cheery characters were a delight to follow throughout January, and we’re seriously impressed with how many Sandra managed to produce in one month! Don’t they look happy together!

20. Jennifer Robson
My Funaday was to make art in drawing, pastels and embroidery using my daily dog walks in my local woods in Ladybank as my source inspiration.

21. Andrea Sayers
This year I have been making prints based on the quick drawings and sketches I made for last year’s Fun A Day.

I made one small linocut each day and created prints similar to the original drawings. I also played with creating new prints and patterns by mixing and matching the images.

IMG_9269

22. Sadie Sayers-Lodge
I did a little bit of sewing each day of the month. I did flat sewing because that was the only way it would be able to hang on the wall.

I made a camel, a heart, a hexagon, a triangle family, an octopus, a mummy and baby worm, a letter A, a babytoes (which are my toes), and a snowman. I was inspired by my atlas and by things I saw each day.

My technique of doing it was to draw the parts on felt then I cut them out and then I sewed them together.

23. Kirsty Baxter
‘Ways of coping’ – I set out to film 30 Coping Mechanisms for 30 days of January (using the last day to edit). However I soon realised that my own interpretations would be limited, so I decided to see if anyone else wanted to contribute. As a result “30 Ways of Coping” became a longer and more collaborative Art Film featuring footage from all kinds of people from all over the world illustrating in their own way ‘Ways of Coping’.

You can view Kirsty’s video HERE.

27. Clare Stansfield / Little White Desk

A blast from the past with this fun collection of illustrated dancin’ cans!

IMG_9205Screenshot 2018-01-18 at 4.29.03 PMIMG_9196

28. David Kendall
‘31 Boxes’.

David decided to do something with all the waste that was visible at his work. With his spark of humour, and creative mind, 31 boxes happened! His collection of boxes from each day in January were designed to be interacted with, as the strict rule of not touching artwork in an art gallery is a pet peeve of Davids. Visitors to the Fun A Day Dundee exhibition giggled, exclaimed, and browsed their way through the 31 boxes which all contained hidden surprises, artwork, and experiments, all made from waste materials. You were even able to take away a box for yourself!

29. Heather McKenzie
‘Recreating #HeathersBridges2017’ – Last year in an effort to be more active, I challenged myself to walk to / over / under as many bridges as I could. I set up a Facebook page and a lot of people contributed suggestions. I thought for ‘fun a day’ it would be interesting to try and draw or paint a selection of the bridges from photos I took.

IMG_9041IMG_9043IMG_9048

30. Sarah Johnston
Knitted sculptures.

We love these bright, soft sculptures paired with their matching prints.

IMG_9603IMG_9610IMG_9611

31. Louise Kirby
To explore and play with an idea with no defined outcome to see where it takes me. Adapting the ‘Five Currant Buns’ nursery rhyme as a starting point creating a range of ink drawings and paper cuts.

IMG_9474IMG_9478IMG_9479IMG_9520IMG_9548

32. Russell Dornan

ANFRACTUOUS: adjective | an·frac·tu·ous | an-ˈfrak-chə-wəs
Meaning: of windings and intricate turnings; tortuous.

I sewed abstract, geometric shapes using white card and copper thread. A new one was created every day, each with one more line than the day before, so the number of lines of thread on each card corresponds to the day of the month it was created.

The name “Anfractuous” refers literally to the process of creating each card, but also hints at how life unfolds from day to day. On January 1st, all seemed simple; each day that passed added ever more complexity. At the end of the month you look back at the woven tangle, an intricate string of twists and turns.

IMG_9326IMG_9333IMG_9337Screenshot 2018-01-18 at 4.32.55 PMIMG_9340IMG_9341

33. Grant D Herron
‘Upcycled Automata’ – Making several automata/moving mechanical objects/toys using repurposed materials and items from around the house/workshop.

Grant’s mechanical toys were a hit at the Fun A Day exhibition, with many visitors turning and pulling at the levers in order to work the toys fun elements. There was a spinning  tie fighter, personal air con, and diy barber with snipping scissors. Clever, well thought out and executed brilliantly. Another Fun A Day project that uses recycled materials from home.

34. Karen Caddell Walker
Reliving childhood memories. The little things that were fun when you were young to amuse yourself. No grown ups, money or friends needed.

36. Elaine Houston
Retrying crafts I’ve failed at in the past (plenty of them!) & crafts I enjoy but haven’t made time for in a while.

A brilliant variety of crafts picked up during the month, which were all worth re visiting. We love this collection, and know the painted wooden slices were popular at the exhibition! Fun A Day can be about doing what you feel like doing day to day, whatever it may be!

39. Gavin Cameron
Poetry, prose and experimentation.

Gavin’s comical and interesting approach to Fun A Day Dundee includes thoughts, diaries, poetry and experiments with his everyday life in January. One item we particularly enjoyed was ‘Burns Night’; a piece of paper with said title, partially burned with fire. Gavin’s exhibited work also featured an interactive element that also promotes recycling/waste reduction. Visitors were encouraged to write on a two meter long sheet of paper their ‘tales of waste by companies’ as said sheet of paper was part of the wasteful packaging for a watch strap.

IMG_9351IMG_9355IMG_9356IMG_9449

40. K Rolina Gibson
A series of daily collages with found poetry.

A beautiful collection of poetry and collage made on recycled card. Fun, thoughtful, and humorous! IMG_9680IMG_9688IMG_9694IMG_9698

44. Laura Galloway
‘Crochet creatures’.

Laura created these gorgeous wee creatures which individual personalities! Another crochet/knitted/textile project for Fun A Day Dundee, helping this year become the first year to hit all the major art mediums. Amazing! We love the birds hanging in their perches.

IMG_9733IMG_9735IMG_9742

45. Hannah Woods
Creating doodles around the fingerprints of Sam (aged 3) and Oscar (aged 4 months).

A brilliant way to get creative when you have your hands full, especially with a new born! Sam and Oscar are our youngest participants to the Fun A Day Dundee project. They loved seeing all the other projects at the exhibition over the weekend, and felt inspired to paint rocks after seeing Carnoustie Rocks project.

47. Ellie Fiddes
‘Fun with yarn and fabrics’ – Usually I make things with a work purpose in mind such as preparing for classes or a workshop.  This month I have taken time to play around with whatever I feel like just for the fun of it. And it has been great enjoying the process, rather than worrying about how it  ‘should’ or will turn out!

IMG_9177

48. Vicky Kerr
‘Daily Drawing’.

Vicky experimented with a variety of styles for her Fun A Day project, taking care with detail, colour and form. Brilliant collection!

IMG_9238IMG_9245evkerrart 2

49. Dawn Adams
Sculptural/abstract art pieces.

Brilliant use of simple materials, achieving depth, emotion and curiosity within this work, all while using a similar colour pallet. Which one is your favourite?

50. Charlotte Lodge
‘Marker Doodles on postage label stickers’ – There was no plan for this year as a theme, however I continued the same use of marker pens on labels through out the project. each day would be something different and I aimed to spend no longer than an hour on this. This posed a challenge to me as I naturally like working in batches rather than working a little bit at a time.

51. Emma Allan
CARNOUSTIE ROCKS

“I started Carnoustie Rocks in July 2017 & the project really caught the imagination of the local community & beyond! It’s a simple concept: paint a rock & hide it for someone else to find. They can then keep it or rehide it or replace it with their own painted rock art. I like to think we’re spreading joy around the world one painted rock at a time 😊

I’ve really enjoyed creating little works of art but we’ve been a bit quieter over the winter months so I wanted to kick start 2018 & encourage more people to join in and be creative.

It’s also given me more confidence and made me step out of my comfort zone a bit – participating in an exhibition, talking about Carnoustie Rocks at a meeting of local groups & speaking to the press!! It’s amazing what a few painted rocks can do 😀”

Fun A Day Dundee 2018 Exhibition

Where has the month gone!? Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun! 😉 We have had record breaking numbers of people taking part this year, as well as an increase in the variety of participants. The project finishes as January comes to a close, and to celebrate; we have a fun, creative, colourful exhibition to showcase all the hard work, and to bring this year’s project to a close. The preview night opens at 7pm on Friday 2nd March, with the exhibition running over the weekend between 10am and 7pm. We hope to see you all there!

Projects In Motion

Well what a busy month it has been already! Fun A Day Dundee has seen an increase in participants taking part in this self- directed, community based project every year. We are now in its 7th year and have record numbers again, with 60-70 people committing themselves to having fun every day in January (or as close to it as possible!)

Once again, we have many participants sharing their projects on social media, creating a supportive dialog between each other, expanding their creative outputs to the world. For some participants, the project is a personal goal, others a fun way to brighten up a dull month, and for many, a reason to try something new, or embrace something they love, and start the year on a positive note, once achieving something small each day, that results in something much greater.

The originators of Fun a Day are the Artclash collective in Philadelphia, so you can join people from Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, Portland, LA and New York in this Fun a Day Challenge! Morgan Cahn brought Fun A Day to Dundee in 2011, and over time has picked up passionate participants to run the event year after year who help the project continue to thrive in Dundee. 

Fun A Day started off as a way to encourage artists to keep each other motivated, but over the years, we have seen an increase in anyone and everyone making this project their own. We have seen families share projects, children creating their own fun, people who consider themselves to be ‘unskilled’ taking part (quite the opposite!), students, artists, all ages, and all from a variety of occupations and backgrounds making the project their own.

One of our regular participants; Ed Muirhead has said on the project:
“Fun A Day really inspires me each January to be creative in an every-day-down-to-earth way!  It’s a fresh start to the year, and it’s an added bonus to see what others come up with during their creative month!”

Another participant and artist; Jennifer Robson also has good words to share on the project and its lasting effect;
“Fun a Day is a really brilliant project set at the perfect time of year when you need something to get your teeth into after the crazy lazy holidays. I used my Project to play with landscapes-an avenue of my work I had always meant to explore but never got around to. It was great to have an exhibition to work towards that was just for me. A year later and my landscapes are now a regular part of my practice, so thanks a million Fun a Day!”


You can find all the work being posted by #funadaydundee2018 participants on Twitter and Instagram using this hashtag.

For now, here is a small selection of this years projects in progress that we would love to share with you! (By the time of the Fun A Day Dundee group exhibition in March (2nd, 3rd, and 4th at WASPS Artist Studios, Dundee), we will have a full post detailing all the creative projects that our participants have produced this year!)

  1. Carnoustie Rocks / Emma Allan
    Emma is doing what she does best for Fun A Day; painting a rock each day in January! The photographs and set up for each rock are just as creative as the paintings. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the month. Check out Carnoustie Rocks on Facebook for more pictures and information. 🙂

2. Russell Dornan
Russell Dornan’s project is sewing abstract, geometric shapes on white card using copper thread. The number of lines of thread on each card corresponds to the day of the month it was created.  We think this is a beautiful and intricate way of documenting the month. This project benefits from the daily documentation of its creation, and we look forward to seeing the outcome!
Check out more from Russell on Instagram & Twitter.

8. Elaine Houston
Elaine has decided to use Fun A Day as a good opportunity to retry crafts she has “failed at” in the past, and to pick up crafts she enjoys which she hasn’t made time for in a while. A great idea to have fun, re visit, and build on skills for something you enjoy. We look forward to seeing all the creative crafts she has tackled at the end of the month!

What a brilliant continuation of an already interesting project. Here are three examples of her work so far!

Hannah’s Fun A Day is to create doodles around the fingerprints of her sons; Sam (aged 3) and Oscar (aged 4 months). What a lovely, creative idea for sharing a project in a family! Our personal favourite are the frogs and raindrops!

Karen is producing figurative drawings and graphic illustrations for her Fun A Day project. We love the galaxies and moons, and would happily have these creations pop up on our feed all year. With the range of splatters, tones, and mediums, we can believe this range could last all year with the beautiful variety created so far. Visit Karen on Instagram to see more!
